Mistral Offers Value-added Consultancy, Support for TI OMAP Platform

8/7/2003 - To help embedded designers accelerate their OMAP platform-based development, Mistral Software introduced the Accelerator Program, a value-added service for software and hardware design, development and support based on TIís OMAP platform.

As an independent OMAP Technology Center (OTC), Mistral will offer drivers and board support packages (BSPs) for the InnovatorTM Development Kit for the OMAP platform. The easy-to-use BSPs support a wide range of modules and drivers and are currently available on VxWorks® and Embedded Linux. Mistral plans to expand support to other RTOS platforms like iTRON, NucleusTM and Symbian by fourth quarter of 2003. The Accelerator Program also includes customized hardware and software design consultancy and web-based training.

ďTIís OMAP platform has been leading the embedded space with its optimal combination of real-time signal processing and rich man-machine interface. Mistral is uniquely positioned to offer system design and customization services for the OMAP technology with our strong background in the embedded systems and solutions across diverse verticals and applications,Ē said Anees Ahmed, CEO, Mistral Software Pvt. Ltd.

Mistral created the Accelerator Program around its extensive technical expertise in the embedded market. For example, AddValue, one of Mistralís customers in the communications space, has benefited from Mistralís support on the VxWorks BSP and successfully implemented its solution faster than expected.

"Mistral has helped Addvalue reduce its time-to-market window by providing consulting services for OMAP platform-based product development,Ē said Dr. Jack See Bao, senior manager, product development, Addvalue. ďWe are very happy with the quality and support provided by Mistral.Ē
