Embedded Studio - Licensing
Embedded Studio Support and Licensing
Embedded Studio has three license options; non commercial, Cortex-M and ARM.
Non Commercial (Evaluation and Educational Use)
Upon installation Embedded Studio can freely be used for evaluation and non-profit educational purposes without limitation.
If no license for commercial use is found, Embedded Studio will run and the following window will be shown when compiling the project or when starting the debug session:
The Cortex-M License will fit most developers' needs, as it allows development of applications for the widely used ARM Cortex-M device family. With this license purchase, technical support for 1 year is also provided.
If you are developing on a Cortex-A/R or an ARM7/9, you will need an ARM License. This license allows developing applications for all supported ARM devices, including Cortex-M. With this license purchase technical support for 1 year is provided.

Support and Updates
The purchase of an Embedded Studio license entitles the user to install and use all Embedded Studio versions which will have been released within the Support and Update period for an unlimited usage period.
To use a version of Embedded Studio after the Support and Update period no license renewal is required.
To update Embedded Studio to a newer version after the Support and Update period an extended Update and Support period license needs to be purchased.
Embedded Studio licenses are licensed for a single user but not limited to a single PC.
The license can be stored on a J-Link, which is then acting like a USB dongle. This allows full usage of Embedded Studio on any of your computers, e.g. your PC at work and your notebook at home, by simply plugging in your J-Link.
Other licensing methods are available upon request.
