Offering Multi-level Pricing and Flexible Licensing Options
You have teams of engineers all over the world, each working with their own unique set of instruments. M1™ is designed to inexpensively maximize the contribution of every engineer and every waveform-producing platform you have. Put M1 on one device, fill a lab, or license it for a campus or every campus of a global company; M1 is immediately self-funding. And ASA provides the services to assist you in making scale and deployment decisions.
Any Platform, Any Brand
You have 1000s of platforms from dozens of brands. Only one tool supports all of them.
Through your organization, you have a wide variety of platforms that are capable of producing waveforms - from EDA simulation tools to oscilloscopes to test stands with digitizers. M1 is the only solution that will work with all of those platforms, enabling you to have a common set of tools throughout the product life-cycle. That allows for better collaboration, simplified training, true correlation between different platforms, and a host of other benefits that will make your teams more efficient and productive.
Pricing to Match the Platform
Always the same tools, priced in line with the platform it works with
If you want to purchase your waveform analysis from the platform manufacturers, you should be prepared to pay $35-50,000 per scope to assemble a minimally-useful bundle of proprietary point-functionality add-ons. That's if you have a high-end scope; if you use mid-range or value scopes, there may not be any manufacturer software available at any price.
ASA believes you shouldn't have to own a state-of-the-art instrument to get state-of-the-art tools, and those tools shouldn't cost more than the hardware. That's why, while M1 Waveform Tools provides exactly the same capabilities on every platform, there are seven pricing levels to ensure that the cost of the tool is always in proportion to the capabilities of the scope, digitizer, or EDA system it will be used with.
One scope, five scopes, one campus, all your campuses...
Unlike the manufacturers' software, which is intended for single-unit sale, ASA's licensing has been specifically designed to scale with your needs, from one scope to every engineer in your worldwide organization and anywhere in between. These flexible licensing options, combined with M1's ability to work on all waveform platforms, provides you the capability to broadly deploy M1 throughout your lab, throughout your campus, or globally at all of your facilities. The volume licensing program can be shown to be immediately self-funding, and the overall impact to an organization is dramatic when both savings in expenses and the shortening of corporate product development life-cycles are considered.
Another area where the manufacturers can't come close to ASA is in the training and services that we can provide. A wide variety of online and on-site training options are available, covering everything from basic M1 usage to learning to quickly and easily create your own automations and custom measurements.
ASA can also provide organizational assistance in choosing the best deployment options and strategies. There are additional programs whereby ASA consultants can work with you on strategies to match your future measurement requirements with your corporate organizational needs. These programs can frequently benefit from the flexible and inexpensive M1 deployment options to work within your existing corporate testing infrastructure.
