TMS320C2801: License agreement

Part Number: TMS320C2801
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: SPRC087

Hi Team,

A customer would like to know if there any specific license agreement document that applies to SPRC087 / C28x IQMath Library. If not, which license should be referred for it?

Regards,

Danilo

  • Danilo,

    If the customer downloads the ZIP and extracts then installs the package, there is a TI click wrap license that will prompt them for agreement.  They can refer to the statements in that license for the details. 

    I've attached a .txt file with the contents of this SLA in case they'd like to review offline.

    Best,
    Matthew

You and your sublicensees shall not remove, alter, cover, or obscure any confidentiality, trade secret, proprietary, or copyright notices, trade-marks, proprietary, patent, or other identifying marks or designs from any component of the Licensed Materials and you shall reproduce and include in all copies of the Licensed Materials the copyright notice(s) and proprietary legend(s) of TI and its licensors as they appear in the Licensed Materials.
