Hi Vinayak,

Thanks for taking this ticket.

However, I'm talking about ThreadX, not FreeRTOS.

It should be complied license contract between Cypress and Express Logic.

Please check it again and provide customer's original question.

Thank you.

The Click License is here: https://community.cypress.com/servlet/JiveServlet/previewBody/1563-102-4-3827/Click-License-July-5-2...

I checked and could not find anything related to Threadx specifically.

However, the first 14 paragraphs cover a broad range of warranty, support, distribution and indemnification topics.

The customer will want to have their legal team review the Click License.

Just FYI:

In 43xxx_Wi-Fi/LICENSE.txt, it claims:

* SSL/TLS object files and headers are licensed by Cypress from Cypherbridge Systems, LLC.

    - SDK Location : <WICED-SDK>/WICED/security/BESL/TLS

But actually current sdk is using mbedTLS. The LICENSE.txt needs fix.
