IAR Embedded Workbench requires a valid software license to be used. IAR Systems offers flexible licensing models for different organizational needs: Network, Mobile or PC-locked licenses.
The network license is convenient and cost efficient for a team of developer. It allows you to share a pool of licenses among a group of users over a network. While there is a limit on the number of concurrent users, the number of installed copies that can occupy a license is unlimited.
The network license is managed by a license server that is included in the delivery. It is connected to a USB dongle, which makes it easy to move the software to another server and to avoid difficulties in case of hardware failure. A complete product package is delivered for each user and new users can be added to an existing network license.
Global Network License
For our customers with operations and development projects at several sites and in different countries, we offer geographical flexibility through Global Network Licenses. The ordinary Network License is restricted to one single geographical site, whereas a Global Network License provides the possibility to have users accessing the same network license from multiple sites globally.
A mobile license is a single user license that allows you to be flexible with your work location. It is locked to a USB dongle that you can bring with you and use with any PC anywhere, and works even if the PC is without network connection. Keeping the license on a dongle also protects your license from hardware failure.
A PC-locked license is locked to a specific PC. It is a single user license but can be used by anyone with physical access to the PC, and works also if the PC is not connected to a network.
