Maintenance services include telephone "hotline" technical support and providing automatic updates of new releases. Upon receiving a bug or problem report from a customer, Source III will provide technical advice, workarounds or, where appropriate, ship modified software to the customer to correct the problem. As long as the license is covered by an active maintenance and technical support contract, there is no charge to move the node-locked license to a new node. Source III requires only that it be provided with a written request, stating the old hostid, the new hostid and the assurance the software will not be run on the old host after it is installed on the new machine. Source III's obligations under this agreement shall be to use its best efforts to correct any software errors or to provide workaround solutions, including software fixes, as deemed appropriate by Source III.

    3.2 Customer shall be notified when new software releases and updates are available for downloading from Source III's web site, to the extent that such releases and updates apply to software covered by this agreement. Source III software maintenance and technical support obligations shall apply only to the latest Source III software release and the one prior release. Customer shall treat all software updates and releases supplied hereunder in the same manner as agreed upon in the applicable Source III license agreement covering the original copy of software provided by Source III to Customer.

  4. MAINTENANCE AND TECHNICAL SUPPORT CHARGES. The initial purchase price of all Source III software products includes 12 months of Software Maintenance services as described in Sections 3.1 and 3.2. Upon renewal of this Agreement under Sections 1 and 2 above, Customer shall pay to Source III a maintenance charge of 20% of the current purchase price of the software product per year.
  5. PAYMENT. Maintenance and technical support charges shall be payable in United States dollars on an annual basis. The charge will be due and payable within 30 days of the date on which the maintenance and technical support services are scheduled to commence.
  6. TAXES. Customer shall pay any federal, state, or local taxes, or other assessments, however designated, exclusive of taxes on Source III net income, arising from or based upon this agreement or upon the maintenance and technical support charges payable under this agreement.
  7. ASSIGNMENT. Source III may assign all or any part of its duties under this agreement. Source III will notify Customer of any such assignment, including new contacts for continued maintenance and technical support. However, no assignment by Source III shall relieve Source III of its obligations under this agreement.

Customer Quotes

  • Sanera Utilizes Full Featured VTRAN® to Convert Functional and ATPG Vectors "We chose VTRAN® because it can handle multiple simulation file formats (including VCD and WGL) from a single tool. VTRAN's commands are easy to use. The flexibility in pin mapping, masking outputs, and generating scan-based vectors proves to be tremendously helpful. And most of all, Source III provides excellent, fast response to our support needs. This helps us to get things moving very quickly - making good solid progress." Ken ChenTest Engineering Manager
  • VTRAN® is currently our tool of choice for converting MS digital test patterns between various logic simulation formats and WGL/STIL. Our experience with Source III has been positive and their support is extremely responsive and timely.
  • We use VTRAN® to translate WGL or TDL vectors to Teradyne J750 and Flex format. The produced patterns work fine and adaptation to a new device pinout can be done easy and quickly.
  • We currently use VTRAN for translating WGL, EVCD and VCD vectors to be used on various Verigy and Teradyne platforms. Their feature set has allowed us to perform vector manipulation instead of writing Perl scripts. Their support has been very responsive and they are open to additional features on future releases.
  • Intrinsix Uses VTRAN® to Speed Vector Translation Flow "I had one customer who used VHDL for RTL, Verilog for gate level simulation, and sometimes used EPIC tools. Getting vectors into the various formats was a nightmare. VTRAN® made the translation process easy and seamless. Plus, WGL or STIL for the test group. Support from Source III has also been quite impressive. In one case, they wrote a bug fix for me in under a day." John Weiland Intrinsix Consultant  
  • Source III VTRAN® tool has been very efficient to translate VCD, WGL, and STIL vectors to Teradyne UFLEX and Verigy 93000 ATE formats. Their response to add or implement new features as per customer needs is impeccable and steadfast. I would highly recommend using this tool to any test engineer for vector conversion
