MLDesigner Technologies Rolls Out Berkeley Socket Library

8/16/2004 - MLDesign Technologies announced a Berkeley socket library that can be used to support interactive operation between MLDesigner models and other applications.

The library includes a sublibary of primitives that perform basic operations defined by the Berkeley socket interface API, a sublibrary of string operators for sending and receiving strings, and a collection of examples that show how to use library components to exchange data under TCP and UDP. Both blocking and non-blocking behavior is supported.

"The Berkeley socket library enables users to integrate MLDesigner models with or into other applications," said Dr. Colin K. Mick, MLDesign Technologies CEO. "Some potential applications for this technology include using an MLDesigner virtual prototype model to emulate the network behavior of a not-yet-developed application, linking two MLDesigner models via a real network to test the operation of new protocols and linking an MLDesigner model so it interoperates with another network-resident simulator or real application."

About MLDesigner
MLDesigner is a powerful system-level design platform that integrates both major system-level modeling areas--architecture and functioni--n a single tool. MLDesigner unifies modeling capabilities found in first generation point-tools for DSP/comms, networking and architectural performance analysis. Developed and priced as a strategic tool for every engineer's desktop, MLDesigner provides significant productivity improvements for both individual designers and entire teams by helping them produce better designs faster and by providing a high degree of code reusability. With MLDesigner, designers and their teams can make critical architectural tradeoffs using performance analysis, develop comprehensive functional specifications, evaluate proposed changes to the architectural and functional specifications and create executable specifications to guide implementation. Customers are using MLDesigner today for projects ranging from the architectural performance analysis of microprocessor designs to the simulation of global military communications systems.

About MLDesign Technologies, Inc.
MLDesign Technologies, Inc. (, headquartered in Palo Alto, Calif., is an international company that provides a team-oriented platform for Next Generation System Design of networks, systems and systems-on-chip. Unlike traditional system-level tools, MLDesign Technologies' Mission-Level Design approach integrates architectures, functions and missions into a single environment. Mission-Level Design enables designers to focus on the key architectures and functionality that determine up to 80 percent of a systems performance and cost, while improving quality, reliability and time-to-market.
