Aeroflex Gaisler uses an open-source business model based on dual licensing. This model allows to provide commercial licenses for a fee, while at the same time offering the source code under open source licenses. The advantages of the dual licensing are:

  • Free access for the academic research community
  • Free evaluation possibilities for companies
  • Large user base gives sizeable and quick feedback
  • Commercial license fees provides funding for new development

Simulators and monitors are available under a commercial license. The software development environment is based on open source tools, and is freely available under the GNU GPL license.
