Longmont, Colo. (PRWEB) September 1, 2005 -- Kozio, Inc., a leading provider
of embedded software for system-level hardware testing, today announced plans
for support of the MIPS32 processor architecture with general availability
October 1. Kozio provides a comprehensive system-level test package for custom
hardware platforms with fast delivery times for supported processors. Support
includes the ability for Kozio to provide outstanding system-level test coverage
for any hardware product using a MIPS32 processor. All Kozio products will be
updated to include MIPS32 processor support.
The move to add this support was spurred by the company's growing relationship with key customers and the resulting need to provide a complete test solution for Voice-over-IP (VoIP) products. Kozio develops turnkey software solutions that verify design and validate hardware for any embedded single-board computer systems for a variety of applications, including networking and communications technology.
"Integrating support for the MIPS32 processor architecture continues Kozio’s leadership position as the only embedded system-level test provider with the tools to accelerate board-level test," notes Kozio President Joseph Skazinski. "Our products help manufacturers and hardware designers reduce their effort while deploying more reliable technology faster than ever before."
The new release of Kozio's kDiagnostics software will support MIPS as well as offer complete digital signal processor (DSP) and VoIP test suites. Specifically, support will be added for:
* MIPS32 4K Core, a solution for multi-CPU system-on-a-chip designs, which are becoming increasingly popular in next-generation networking and broadband applications.
* Texas Instruments' TNETV1060 CPE Gateway Solution, a highly integrated software and silicon system-on-a-chip designed to address the requirements of residential and small office/home office (SOHO) gateways.
* Texas Instruments' programmable TMS320C55x™ DSP.
Kozio's new software versions will also deliver Foreign eXchange Office (FXO) and Foreign eXchange Subscriber (FXS) test suites for the two most common interfaces (ports or plugs) found in analog telephony environments
In addition to the general software release supporting the MIPS 32 architecture, Kozio also ports all of its comprehensive embedded system-level test products to custom platforms. This service is included with the price of a software license and can be completed, on average, in one week.
Kozio delivers a complete diagnostics and functional test solution for hardware board bring-up, manufacturing test and production-ready power-on self-test through its products: kDiagnostics for system-level diagnostics of embedded designs; kMfgTest for automated embedded manufacturing and functional test; and kPOST for off-the-shelf Power-On Self-Test (POST). These solutions from Kozio provide more complete testing throughout the development process, resulting in fewer spins in the prototype stages and fewer defects in the final product. Boards move from design through prototyping and manufacturing to release in less time, with less cost and fewer defects.
Kozio's latest software release includes new, enhanced, and extended support for a variety of technologies across all its products. In the past quarter Kozio has added drivers and test suites for NAND Flash devices, Host and Device USB test suites, PCI bridge support, LCD support, expanded Altera FPGA support and enhanced Compact Flash support. These new features expand on the already extensive Kozio Test Library, enhancing the company's leadership role in providing the most comprehensive hardware test software for board bring-up, manufacturing test and power-on self-test (POST).
