    Likely not for me, free trial probably means still $$ to in the end use their software and being stalked by marketing guys that want to sell me a license.
    Trust me ...
    I know what I am doing.

    Yes, we are looking to charge $20/month ($200/year) and $50/month ($500/year) for ViaDesigner.com and ViaDesigner software.

    That sounds reasonable. Any plans to provide a pay-as-you-go cloud version ? I think that would definitely bring it into reach of hobbyists/makers.
    And what is guideline for minimum order quantity ?
    I see that you present that the software runs on Windows as a feature but personally I would also welcome a Linux version of the software . I only rarely have to switch on my Virtual Windows machine anymore.

    ViaDesigner in the cloud...sounds good and will be available in the future!

    We plan on having a Windows version and a cloud-based version to pick from. Our cloud-based version will be our approach to providing Linux support (really OS-independent support).

    ViaASIC Minimum Order Quantity
    I've always liked Google's quote about their search engine from their early days -- "If you will try it six months from now it will be better."
    Today, you probably need 10,000+ production ViaASIC devices for the $250,000 turnkey ViaASIC NRE to make sense from a return-on-investment (ROI) perspective. As we provide the end user with more of a complete ViaDesigner toolkit the NRE will go down. Our goal is to get the NRE for prototype development below $10,000. As the NRE goes down hundreds or low thousands of production ViaASICs will start to make economic sense.
