Is the license perpetual-the fixed subscription license of Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software

We are planning to buy the fixed subscription license of Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software.

We find online (https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/programmable/buy/design-software.html) it says:

 

Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software fixed-node subscription supports all devices on Windows platforms. Includes access to Intel Quartus Prime Standard Edition and software updates for one year.

$3,995 USD, Ordering code - SW-PE-QRTS-FIX.

 

Could you please tell me:

1, does it mean it can be updates to new released version within one year, and it can be used without time limit? In an other words, is it a perpetual license, or will it expire after one year?

2, does it only support Windows platform? If I install it on a Windows PC, and for some reason I change the OS of that PC into linux (hardware not changed), could I use the same license to run Quartus Prime for linux on that linux PC?

 

Best Regards,

Seigen Nakasone (Qingyuan Tian)

Hi,

"1, does it mean it can be updates to new released version within one year, and it can be used without time limit? In an other words, is it a perpetual license, or will it expire after one year?" - - - - - - It will expire after 12 months & user need to renew it, on active maintenance or less than 30 days after expiration.

Refer the Step 6: Specify the Intel FPGA Software License from below Intel FPGA Software Installation and Licensing Quick Start,

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/programmable/documentation/esc1425943996095.html#mwh14108909...

Please refer the table & Note 3. for renewal policy,

"2, does it only support Windows platform? If I install it on a Windows PC, and for some reason I change the OS of that PC into linux (hardware not changed), could I use the same license to run Quartus Prime for linux on that linux PC?" - - - - - - Yes, you can use it but first ensure the supported operating system from table below,

For Licensing most important thing is network interface card (NIC) ID is a 12‑digit hexadecimal string embedded in the network card that uniquely identifies a computer, check the 'Identifying Host's NIC ID" from link below,
