Kozio Announces Support for Freescale's QorIQ® P1 Platform Series
Hardware and Software Integration for Custom Boards Based on the P1021 and P1012 Processors
LONGMONT, Colo., -- Kozio, Inc. (www.kozio.com), the leading provider of In-System Diagnostics today announced the expansion of its In-System Diagnostics (ISD) solution to support Freescale Semiconductor's QorIQ® P1 Platform Series, which includes the P1021 (dual-core) and P1012 (single-core) communications processors. Kozio is the trusted technology leader for integrating hardware and software on electronic devices through ISD, which includes full speed functional tests with interactive and automated interfaces. Kozio is able to leverage over a million lines of validated code to deliver a comprehensive solution for custom boards using the P1021 and P1012 processors in two weeks. Users of these platforms are now able to take full advantage of Kozio's kDiagnostics® Suite to accelerate the development process. This packaged circuit board test solution requires zero design changes or extra equipment, and eliminates the need for QorIQ platform developers to write their own test code. Using kDiagnostics, a QorIQ platform-specific validation check list with results is produced for the respective developer in minutes. The kDiagnostics Design Suite is usable across all product phases, which enables customers to get to market quickly with trusted, tested hardware.
"The QorIQ platform series is ideally suited for a wide variety of applications in the networking, telecom, defense and industrial markets," said Nikolay Guenov, segment marketing manager for Freescale's Networking Processor Division. "In today's competitive market, companies must continue to pursue advanced methods of verifying and validating new product designs in order to ship reliable products to their customers. We are happy that our customers are able to leverage Kozio's outstanding technology for Freescale-based circuit boards."
"Kozio is committed to expanding support of Freescale processors and helping their customers world-wide improve test quality, while reducing overall cost and development time," stated Clint Ostrander, President & CEO, Kozio, Inc. "We are uniquely positioned to support all custom designs that leverage the QorIQ platform and look forward to enabling these customers to shave months off of their project schedule."
The complete Kozio solution is a suite of software tools for board diagnostics, binary image downloading, in-system programming, automated board testing, and power-on self-test. The Kozio architecture has two main components: a target diagnostics application and one or more host applications. kDiagnostics Suite includes kDiagnostics - a binary application personalized to your hardware, that executes from the CPU on your processor-based embedded system - and a single license of ValidationAssistant(TM) - a host-based application that provides a graphical user interface for interactively executing tests, downloading images, performing in-system programming of devices such as Flash memory, and troubleshooting assembly or design errors.
Kozio's kDiagnostics Suite with QorIQ P1 platform series support is available immediately.
