All of the code that I will pass through FAbRIC CAD tools (such as Verilog files, Bluespec files, etc.) and the files needed to process that code (such as Makefiles) is either already open source (GPL version 2 or above, BSD, or MIT licenses) or I have the right to make it open source and am hereby making all of the code that I pass through FAbRIC CAD tools open source by one of those licenses. I will provide access to my source code to the CAD tool vendors and the FAbRIC administrators immediately. The simplest way to do that is to provide a repository account to the FAbRIC administrators. By default, the CAD tool vendors and/or the FAbRIC administrators agree not to publish the code publicly for at least 12 months.
I acknowledge that the tools, servers, and FPGAs are potentially subject to export controls under U.S. and other applicable government laws and regulations. I will comply with these laws and regulations and agree to obtain all required government authorizations.
I acknowledge that my access to and use of the Microsoft Project Catapult Academic Shell and Driver and related hardware provided by Microsoft is governed by, and subject to, the terms and conditions of the Microsoft Research License Agreement for the Microsoft Project Catapult Academic Shell and Driver. By accessing or using Microsoft Project Catapult materials, I represent and warrant that I have read the agreement, and I agree to be bound by it.
