Our software is licensed by USB dongle or a licence file associated with a specific PC. Other forms of licensing may be available for certain products and situations, to discuss these, please email or call us.
1. Development Licences
For development using the SPx library, there is a one-time cost for the development libraries, utilities, documentation, tools and technical support. This only applies when developing new custom applications. View our Developer Tools here
Development Licence Permissions
The SPx Developer's licence permits SPx modules to be used for development purposes. It does not permit the deployment of software that includes SPx capabilities without the purchase, in advance of deployment, of run-time licences.
Renewal of Licences
An SPx Development licence includes technical support for a specific time period, normally 12 months. After this time, the support may be renewed.
2. Runtime Licences
Runtime licences are perpetual and are required for deployment of any Cambridge Pixel software applications or customer applications developed using our library.
When is a Runtime Licence Required?
Applications such as SPx Server, SPx Tracker-3D, ASD-100, VSD, RadarWatch, SPx Fusion, SPx Radar Simulator, RDR and RadarView are complete application programs provided by Cambridge Pixel in executable format. These require a runtime licence for each instance of the software that is run.
Where two (or more) instances of the same application are executed on the same computer, two (or more) licences are required.
For custom applications developed with Cambridge Pixel’s SPx Development library, a runtime licence is required for each executable program created by a customer that incorporates (is linked with) SPx modules. The run time licences required depend on the SPx functionality incorporated into the application.
Does the Runtime Licence Expire?
No. The run-time licence is a perpetual licence, which never expires. There is no recurring charge once the initial runtime licence fee is paid. Cambridge Pixel may develop enhancements to the deployed software and these may require additional support or licensing fees.
Transfer of Runtime Licence
All SPx licences are supplied to a named organisation and site, as indicated in the licence certificate. Please note that the licence is not transferable without the prior written consent of Cambridge Pixel.
