itemis provides free licences for academic use
YAKINDU Statechart Tools is a toolset for software development. It supports the complete development process, from graphical design, through validation and simulation, to the generation of source code for different programming languages such as Java, C or C ++.
The toolset is already in use in numerous university projects and for teaching the concept of state machines, for example at the Technical and Economic University of Budapest and the Weizmann Institute of Science. The inventor of statecharts, Prof. David Harel, recommends the toolset for statechart modelling, and especially appreciates its simple and direct use:
“I like the YAKINDU statechart tool a lot, especially the fact that it is simple and direct, and is not burdened with some of the more advanced, expensive and heavy features of other professional statechart tools.”
itemis AG provides free licences for academic use to support and promote students and teachers. These licences include the complete scope of the toolset, including all additional features of YAKINDU Statechart Tools Professional Edition.
