The Algodone solution fills a gap in the business model of Hardware vendors by providing maximum flexibility to control the legitimate use of all their know-how.

The invention is modeled on the principles of software license management (SLM or "Software License Manager").

It allows a very fine control of the diffusion of hardware models and circuits. In particular, a fully controlled royalty based business model is now possible.
