Commercial License Benefits

Commercial License Options

Our license model is built around our customers and their specific needs. It is divided into two options:

Royalty based
Fixed price per sold unit, broken by the quantity ranges (the price per unit does depend on the volumes). Future Mongoose OS releases are covered permanently.
Fixed Fee per Design per year
Fixed fee per year per Hardware Design Type license is provided to Enterprise customers. Future Mongoose OS releases are covered for the time of subscription.

Our Commercial License model is simple and includes full access to the source code and accompanying documentation. If your needs require a custom license, we’d be happy to work on a solution with you.

Non Compliance and License Incompatibilities

Incompatibilities, through taking different components of different sources and ignoring any license restrictions, can result in the software pieces you choose not to be permitted to be used in a single product.
