Share Article

Companies will offer integrated systems featuring PowerQUICC hardware from Embedded Planet and highly optimized microcode from DoGav Systems.

Embedded Planet, a leading supplier of single board computers and embedded systems and DoGav Systems, a leading provider of software and hardware consultancy specializing in Freescale's PowerQUICC communications processors, today announced a partnership that will enable them to combine their expertise to offer hardware and software integrated solutions based on the PowerQUICC processor family from Freescale Semiconductor.

"The combination of Embedded Planet's hardware and high-level software expertise and DoGav Systems' microcode, communications and networking know-how offer the opportunity to create a real differentiated solution for the marketplace," said Matt Hoover, VP Sales and Marketing of Embedded Planet. "Integrating DoGav Systems' highly-efficient microcode modules into our platforms will enable our customers to enhance the performance and communication capabilities of our products to meet their specific markets requirements. This software-based solution is much more cost-effective and quicker to deploy than the alternative of adding hardware to achieve similar functionality. In addition, customers can further modify or enhance this functionality in the future through software, without having to make any changes to their existing hardware."

"Embedded Planet is a highly respected platform developer within the industry, and we are delighted to work in partnership with them. Our ever growing library of off-the-shelf PowerQUICC microcode modules and years of experience in developing customized microcode packages to meet our customers’ specific requirements, combined with Embedded Planet’s highly-regarded range of PowerQUICC-based boards will enable us to offer customers a complete system solution specifically tailored to their needs," said David Gabbay, President and CEO of DoGav Systems.

The PowerQUICC I, II and III families incorporates two main components: an embedded core processor built on Power Architecture technology and a communications processor module (CPM) - a dedicated RISC engine optimized for handling communications tasks. The PowerQUICC II Pro processor families incorporate a next-generation communications engine known as QUICC Engine.

Both the CPM and QUICC Engine technology support a wide range of protocols, and they operate independently from the core processor. They have their own instruction set and can be programmed via "microcode", a proprietary assembly language. This presents the opportunity for implementing higher levels of networking protocols and/or introducing new protocols, resulting in considerable application complexity offload and an increase in the overall performance.

Microcode modules can be developed for serial, Ethernet, SPI, I2C, UTOPIA and others. Examples of microcode TCP/IP solutions include packet parsing and inspection, filtering and time stamping. Other examples include high-speed memory interfaces and testing.
