PLX, Jungo Team to Provide Full Range of USB Device Development Tools

Jungo's WinDriver Driver Development Toolkit Bundled With PLX's NET2272, NET2280 Rapid Development Kits (RDKs)

SUNNYVALE and SAN JOSE, California, February 17--PLX Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: PLXT), the leading supplier of standard I/O interconnect silicon to the communications, server, storage, embedded- control, and consumer industries, and Jungo Software Technologies, Inc. a leading provider of USB/PCI software solutions, today announced an agreement to include Jungo's WinDriver toolkit with PLX(R) rapid development kits (RDKs) for the PLX NET2272 and NET2280 high-speed USB 2.0 peripheral controllers.

The combination of PLX NetChip RDKs and a fully functional 30-day evaluation version of the WinDriver device driver development toolkit provides system designers and software developers with a complete environment for developing USB device firmware, host drivers and applications.

Jungo's WinDriver software features a graphical development environment, intuitive application programming interfaces (APIs), hardware diagnostic services, debug utilities, and device driver samples.

"By expanding our partnership with PLX to include support for its USB controllers, we offer our customers accessibility to tools that address their specific USB development needs," said Omry Ben David, marketing manager of the Software Tools Division at Jungo. "PLX and Jungo present an attractive hardware/software solution for USB development by providing tools that cover all phases of the development cycle".

PLX's USB RDKs are complete development solutions - hardware, software and source code -- that help engineers create USB 2.0 device firmware, host drivers and applications. The kits provide engineers with a stable hardware and software platform for developing firmware for PLX's USB peripheral controllers, such as the NET2272 and NET2280. These firmware, drivers and applications often can be fully developed and tested before a developer's hardware is complete, meaning quicker development time and faster time to market.

"PLX and Jungo have a long and productive history of working together; Jungo's firmware has been incorporated into development tools for several PLX PCI products," said Adam Chen, senior product marketing manager at PLX. "We're pleased that this working relationship is now being extended to the PLX NetChip line of industry-leading USB 2.0 controllers and the development tools for them. Developers will realize a wealth of benefits from the blend of PLX and Jungo expertise."


The fully functional 30-day evaluation version of WinDriver is included in PLX's NET2272 and NET2280 RDKs. It is also available for download from Jungo's website at: Jungo's driver development tools may be purchased from Jungo directly, or via one of Jungo's worldwide resellers.

Jungo will exhibit its Embedded USB Software Solutions and Driver Development Tools at the Embedded World 2005 show in Nurnberg, Germany, February 22-24, 2005. Visit booth #11-404.
