Cadence Low-Cost Classroom Teaching Licenses

EUROPRACTICE Cadence Classroom Teaching licenses are intended for institutes who are teaching large student classes and have too few regular EUROPRACTICE non-commercial research and training license seats for that purpose.

The Classroom Teaching licenses have the exactly the same functionality as the regular EUROPRACTICE non-commercial research and training licenses.

The Classroom Teaching licenses will be subject to all the usage restrictions of the regular EUROPRACTICE Cadence licenses but, in addition, no research use of any sort will be allowed. The Classroom Teaching licenses must also be located on a separate license server from the regular EUROPRACTICE Cadence licenses.

An application for access to low-cost Classroom Teaching licenses requires an initial proposal and renewals require a successful yearly report. Access to Classroom Teaching licenses is at the discretion of Cadence, after considering these documents.

The following Cadence Classroom Teaching licenses are available:

In order to be eligible for consideration for Classroom Teaching licenses, institutes must pay the fees for 1 or more regular EUROPRACTICE licenses of the appropriate Package, e.g:

Classroom Package Eligibility Annual Charges
IC Package IC Package
Systems Package Systems Package
PCB Studio Package PCB Studio Package

Cadence Classroom Teaching licenses are free of license charge, but are subject to annual charge supplements.
