Bound-T Licensing

Since January 2014 Tidorum supplies Bound-T as free of charge, open-source software. Conversely, we hope that users of Bound-T will tell us about problems they may have or bugs they may discover. Tidorum will support and advise Bound-T users as our resources allow. We are of course also eager to hear about successful uses of Bound-T.

The only parts of Bound-T that are not provided as source code are some modules that let Bound-T read target programs in the proprietary and non-open formats used by some cross-compilers. These formats are UBROF, generated by IAR compilers for various target architectures, and OMF2, generated by Keil compilers for the Intel-8051 architecture. Tidorum implemented modules for reading UBROF and OMF2 files under Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDA) with the compiler vendors. Disclosing the source code of these modules would violate the NDAs.

If you need a version of Bound-T which includes some of these compiler-specific modules, please contact Tidorum. For a small fee, Tidorum will generate for you a Bound-T executable including these modules. Tidorum is investigating if these modules can be provided as shared (dynamically linked) libraries in object-code form, which would make them generally available without disclosing their source code.

Tidorum also sells technical support for Bound-T, custom extensions and modifications to Bound-T, and analysis services where the customer provides the target program to be analysed and Tidorum performs the analysis using Bound-T, at the Tidorum site or the customer's site, as preferred. Contact Tidorum for technical support prices and offers on extensions or modifications.
