LONGMONT, Colo. - Kozio, Inc. (www.kozio.com), the leading provider of software solutions for embedded hardware design verification and production test, today announced the expansion of its Verification and Test OS (VTOS(TM)) to support the new OMAP(TM) 5 platform from Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI). The OMAP 5 platform is a smart, multicore applications processor with integrated wireless connectivity, power management, battery management and audio management solutions for next-generation Smartphones, Tablets and other mobile devices. Kozio's VTOS platform is ready to be used for new OMAP 5 platform-based board bring-up efforts, design verification and also transitions seamlessly into production test. This is the third generation of VTOS for the OMAP processor architecture, so when the prototype arrives, customers can be confident that their OMAP-based design will be verified for correctness and manufacturability in a matter of days, not weeks. With Kozio's VTOS, a functional test library is provided that can test the design in minutes and at full speed.
"Next-generation mobile device consumers demand high-performance and reliability, and the companies developing these products must stay ahead of the competitive curve with differentiated products," said Robert Tolbert, director of OMAP platform marketing, TI. "Leveraging the partnership between TI and Kozio, our customers can quickly verify new hardware designs with confidence and deliver high-quality products faster with reduced risk and cost."
"TI offers a rich set of processors that are highly differentiated with a broad range of capabilities. Kozio's VTOS suite for the OMAP 5 processor provides a platform to quickly and confidently verify an OMAP 5 processor-based design for correctness and manufacturability," said Bob Potock, Vice President of Marketing, Kozio, Inc. "Hardware engineers can now confidently hand-off OMAP 5 processor prototype hardware to the software development team for application development and release their designs to manufacturing."
The Kozio technology combines a special purpose OS with a comprehensive peripheral and processor test library. The Verification and Test OS (VTOS) provides a powerful verification platform for test execution, file transfer and debug. VTOS is designed specifically for the purpose of embedded design verification to ensure design correctness, performance and reliability. VTOS is configured on a per hardware design basis to optimize for efficiency and speed. VTOS accelerates the verification process with an interactive command interpreter and powerful test library. VTOS can also be utilized in production test and field diagnostics making the technology transferable within your organization.
