(PRWEB) November 18, 2004
Kozio, Inc., a leading developer of embedded systems software, today announced its support of the IntelÂ® network processor product lines, including the new Intel IXP460, Intel IXP465, IXP2325 and IXP2350 network processors. Kozio, a general member of the Intel Communications Alliance, develops software solutions that verify design and validate hardware for embedded single-board computer systems. Kozio will provide support in December to a limited number of partner board designers offering IXP23XX reference designs, and full support for both families will be available to all board designers in Q1 of 2005.
"Kozio is committed to supporting the full line of Intel XScale processors, building expertise that we pass on to our customers," said Kozio President Joseph Skazinski. "We continue to help our customers accelerate the release of new computer-based board products with increased reliability at a lower internal cost."
For developers of products based on the IXP23XX and IXP46X families, Kozio provides a completely integrated diagnostics solution, including drivers for network processor engines (NPEs) and micro-engines, as well as turnkey test suites for Ethernet, I2C, USB, HSS and other features provided through the core processor architecture.
The Intel IXP2325 and Intel IXP2350 network processors are the latest additions to the Intel IXP2XXX product line and extend Intel's fully programmable architecture to new, lower cost/performance points for access and edge applications. They are targeted for network access and edge applications, combine data plane and control plane processing capabilities in a single chip, and are Intel's first network processors built on 90nm process technology.
The IntelÂ® IXP460 and IntelÂ® IXP465 network processors are the latest additions to the Intel IXP4XX product line and offer a higher-speed Intel XScaleÂ® core and expanded connectivity options, as well as enhancements to improve end-system reliability and security.
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). All products are delivered as pre-built binaries fully ported to custom hardware.
