Build-A-Board uses the IMG License Manager to manage the licensed use of this product. If unlicensed, the operation will be as an evaluation - you can work with the Builder, but will not be able to build licenseable layouts - you can still build and work with samples, but will not be able to generate licensed Run-Time targets. Evaluation built layouts will operate as limited run-time versions, even on separately licensed run-time targets. In the evaluation (unlicensed) mode, Build-A-Board will upon exit display the license manager (announcing that it is unlicensed). It is recommended that a free account/free license be obtained for almost all Build-A-Board users. For extended evaluation, testing, and special purposes, please contact IMG Customer Service for license options. Once licensed, the operation will not be limited in any way.
Note: The only way to generate licensed Run-Time Targets will be from a licensed version of Build-A-Board. However, systems running Build-A-Board generated layouts may also license the Run-Time software separately (system license).
The most common methods of licensing are electronic (web/web account/e-mail based) and by certificate (Certificate of Authenticity). With licenses using a registered serial number, a license key will be made available once a license has been purchased - these need to be entered into the IMG License Manager to activate a valid license. For further details, refer to the IMG License Manager. There is also USB storage device licensing, so Build-A-Board can be run from the USB device, simply by inserting the licensed device into any system.
Note: There are numerous license schemes (including OEM, site, & enterprise licenses) available to meet the needs of all our customers. If you have any licensing questions, please contact Innovation Management Group, Inc. directly.
