The synthesis of user-supplied SystemC models to RT-level VHDL with the online-demo of FOSSY is free of charge.
It is prohibited specifically to abuse the FOSSY synthesis service by intervening disruptively or by accessing the service in a different manner, than by the mechanisms and (user) interfaces provided by OFFIS via this website.
OFFIS is allowed to deny the translation of particular inputs, e.g. in case of potential copyright infringements of third parties.
The synthesis results in terms of generated VHDL code (hereinafter VHDL models) are sent to the requesting user via e-mail. The VHDL models may be used for the limited purpose of internal, non-commercial evaluation of the capabilities of FOSSY. This does not include the right to disclose, copy, sell, or otherwise commercially exploit the VHDL models.
