We believe that we are providing the best value in the digital simulation industry. Yes, you can pay a lot more with other vendors but ask yourself why? With this price, you get the features you need most along with top-notch quality, performance and support. When you purchase a license, you are free to get any or all updates (new revisions and builds, so long as your license is active). To compare the features for the various editions, click here.

Why yearly licenses?

Because of the low volume associated with CAD/EDA software, almost all CAD companies have adopted such a licensing model. However, other companies call this "maintenance fee" while they charge a higher upfront price for the first year. While you have an active license, you will be able to use all future versions of the software and the same license will work will any version of the software.

What is the difference between a node-locked license and a floating license?

A node-locked license allows one instance of the software to run on one particular computer. A floating license allows the license to be installed on a server but any computer on the LAN (local-area-network) is allowed to use the license (the license floats and each license allows one concurrent access to one instance of the software). For example, three floating licenses allow a maximum of any three users to use the software concurrently.

Can I get permanent (perpetual) licenses instead of one-year licenses?

Yes. Please contact us for pricing on perpetual licenses.

Can I get a price discount for purchasing multiple licenses?
