    Legal usage of  FX3 SDK source code and driver



      Our customer has downloaded FX3 SDK v1.3.3 and they are asking for legal usage of it.

      EZ-USB FX3 Software Development Kit | Cypress Semiconductor


      (1) Can they editing & compile the source code provided in SDK installed folder, write the compiled firmware to FX3 ROM and sell it as their product?

      (2) Can they duplicate the object code of the driver (without modification and editing) and distribute it by CD for installation on the end user's PC?


      Please tell us if there are any legal issue on this.

      Best Regards,

          Hi Tran-san,


          Yes, they can. There is no legal issue for both actions.


          Please kindly note that there are 2 things to keep in mind.

          1) They must use the driver only with Cypress Silicon (They should not use the driver with some other chip)

          2) Cypress claims no responsibility if the source code does not work after they edit themselves.
