Licensing

Before you begin, make the right license choice. With Synflow, you can reach all your target platforms with one technology, minimizing your time-to-market and maintenance burden. The Synflow IDE is available under a dual-licensing model — you choose what’s right for your needs.

The Synflow IDE is available under different licensing options designed to accommodate the needs of our various users.

Open Source Development

The Synflow IDE licensed under the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL) version 3 is appropriate for the development of cores, apps, and systems provided you can comply with the terms and conditions of the GNU LGPL version 3. The Synflow IDE contains third-party code that is licensed under other open-source licenses.


Professional Development

The Synflow IDE licensed under commercial licenses is appropriate for development of proprietary/commercial IP cores, apps, and systems where you do not want to share any source code with third parties or otherwise when you cannot comply with the terms of the GNU LGPL version 3. Contact us to get a Professional License.


Create Your Own SDK

The Synflow IDE can also be used to create your very own custom distributable SDK. In this case, the licensee is not just using libraries and tools but actually distributing a Synflow-based SDK to a number of developers/customers. For this purpose, we provide a custom SDK licensing option.


When deciding which license to use, please check your corporate open source policy or consult a SW licensing legal expert. You can also contact us for more details on our licenses. Prices for the Synflow IDE starts $149/month.
