Core8 is free for non-commerical use.

This means, if you are a hobbyist or just want to play around with Core8, you may do so.

However, if you are selling a product, making money from something using it – we need to talk. I think it is only fair to get a cut, so I can support my hobbies and create more cool stuff. Don’t you think so?


Core8 Framework Software License Agreement

1. Definitions

  • “Framework” refers to the Core8 framework, which is a specialized software platform designed for developing applications that run on 8-bit microcontroller units (MCUs).
  • “Licensee” refers to any individual or entity that uses the Framework.
  • “Commercial Use” involves any use of the Framework in a commercial activity where the primary intention is revenue generation.

2. Grant of License

  • Non-Commercial License: The Framework is available free of charge for non-commercial use by hobbyists, students, and developers for educational or personal projects. This license allows you to use, modify, and distribute the Framework in non-commercial settings.
  • Commercial Use License: Use of the Framework in any commercial activity requires a separate license agreement. Interested parties should contact the Licensor to negotiate terms suitable for commercial distribution and support.

3. Portability and API Consistency

  • The Framework is designed to abstract the differences across various 8-bit MCUs, providing a consistent API that enhances portability and simplifies the development process. This includes standardized libraries for I/O operations, timers, interrupts, and other peripherals.

  • You shall not misrepresent the origin or ownership of the Framework.
  • Modifying or extending the Framework for commercial use without the proper commercial license is strictly prohibited.

7. Termination

  • This License is effective until terminated. The License will terminate immediately without notice from the Licensor if you fail to comply with any provision of this License. Upon termination, you must cease all use of the Framework and destroy all copies, full or partial, of the Framework.

8. Miscellaneous

  • This License constitutes the entire agreement between the parties relating to the use of the Framework and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous understandings regarding such subject matter. No amendment to or modification of this License will be binding unless in writing and signed by the Licensor.
