University Program Overview

Aldec, Inc. is offering certified Educational Facilities access to an EDU Editions and Student Edition of its professional Electronic Design Automation (EDA) software tools.

The University Program makes Aldec's Active-HDL and Riviera-PRO tools available based on a limited set of features and performance in the newly released EDU Edition.

These product configurations are only available for classroom use and require letter of certification stating the purpose of use on letterhead from the respective University.

University and Educational customers seeking to purchase Active-HDL, Riviera-PRO or ALINT standard products for research applications must do so outside of the Educational program, by contacting their local sales representatives.


Aldec, Inc. will not accept orders for its EDU Editions or commercial products at educational prices, unless the following criteria are met:

Letter from the Dean or Head of Department stating that the use of Aldec’s products is for Educational Purposes only and will not be used either directly or together with other products outside of the class for any purpose other than teaching.
Credit Card orders must be from the educational facilities credit card only, otherwise all Purchase Orders must come from the University exclusively.
Only after Aldec's review and authorization will the order be accepted.


For Educational customers seeking unrestricted performance or additional functionality not offered in the EDU Edition of Active-HDL, Riviera-PRO or ALINT we offer a substantial discount off of list price for all time based versions of Aldec commercially available configurations. Please contact your local authorized distributor.
