Transforming the Process of Developing Electronic Products Based on the P2010 and P2020 Processors
Longmont, Colo., June 1, 2011 - 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® P2 Platform Series, which includes the P2020 (dual-core) and P2010 (single-core) communications processors. Freescale's QorIQ P2 platform series delivers high single-threaded performance per watt for a wide variety of applications targeted towards the networking, telecom, military and industrial markets. Kozio's solution for the P2 series helps transform the process of developing embedded electronic products in these target markets and more. Engineers using Kozio's powerful kDiagnostics® Suite can automatically validate hardware designs, optimize system performance, and simplify the process of integrating new hardware with new software. Kozio leverages a proven validation platform with exceptional test coverage to deliver a packaged solution for custom boards using a QorIQ P2 processor.
Kozio delivers a single flexible platform solution that is easily extensible across the entire product life cycle including: Design, Manufacturing, and Self-Test. Working collaboratively in a common development environment, engineers realize increased productivity, accelerated time-to-market, improved product quality, and reduced risk of field failures. Whether developing network equipment, industrial control systems, telecommunications equipment or military products, our customers are efficiently accelerating their rate of innovation and significantly reducing risk which allows them to meet the demands of increasingly competitive and rapidly evolving global markets.
"The QorIQ P2 platform series serves in a wide range of applications, especially those that have tight thermal constraints," said Nikolay Guenov, segment marketing manager for Freescale's Networking Processor Division. The QorIQ P2020 and P2010 dual- and single-core products are pin-compatible with Freescale's QorIQ P1 platform products, offering four interchangeable cost-effective solutions. Kozio now supports the entire P1 and P2 series products. With this expanded support of Freescale's processors, our customers have a unique and outstanding technology for accelerating their time to market."
"The Kozio solution has been successfully utilized on 90 unique product designs using Power Architecture® and QorIQ Platform Series processors. We continue to help Freescale customers improve product reliability, while reducing overall cost and development time," stated Clint Ostrander, President & CEO, Kozio, Inc. "We are uniquely positioned to support any custom design that leverages Freescale's QorIQ P1 and P2 platforms. Kozio fully supports customers who are dedicated to the continued development of innovative solutions and helps those customers shave months off of their project schedule and reduce the risk of escaped defects."
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™ − 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 for Freescale's QorIQ P1 and P2 communication platform series is available immediately.
