EF-DI-JESD204-SITE FULL LICENSING TIME LIMIT

Jump to solution

Dear Friends,

 

We are planning to purchase a single EF-DI-JESD204-SITE license. However I'm confused with its time bound. Is it a single full activation license for lifetime use or is it only valid for a year and you can't use it after a year without renewal? I tried to find some information on the web but cant get an exact answer. Seemingly, there is also another EFR-DI-JESD204-SITE renewal license. Does it mean that I have to pay a renewal fee every year?

 

Thanks.

The license gives you IP updates for a year.   The IP that's released during that window (and all prior years) will work forever, into the indefinite future.    When the license expires, any IP updates that are released later will not work with your older license.   For very stable IP that is not likely to have any bug fixes or enhancements, many companies will let their license expire, since they are happy with the state of the older IP.   A major bug, once discovered, may force the purchase of a new license, in order to get the update that fixes the bug.
