CADpass is a utility provided by CMC Microsystems that provides authorized CMC clients with access to state-of-the-art microsystems design tools and services. It consists of a secure connector (AppGate) that is installed on the client workstation and acts as an encrypted gateway, which allows controlled access to CMC license servers.
CADpass AppGate connector is installed on your MAC system and can be configured to automatically connect for access to CAD tool services and licenses.
