We offer per Developer based licensing, per Product based licensing, per Product Family based licensing and Company Wide licensing. We offer these licenses for our RTOS and Middleware offerings in either full ANSI-C Source Code.

In many cases we also offer these licenses at a greatly reduced price for Obfuscated Source Code or Object Code implementations of our offerings.
