SDC Systems Distributes Embedded Hardware Testing Technology for Kozio

2/3/2005 - Embedded Systems technology distributor SDC Systems Limited has been appointed as the European distributor for Kozio, a US company that delivers a complete diagnostics and functional test platform that efficiently accelerates the development of new processor based board designs.

Kozio is an expert in delivering software solutions that interact directly with vast permutations of processors and peripheral chip technology. They can deliver a pre-built binary providing a comprehensive and automatic test application that is ready-to-run on custom hardware devices. They claim that once such recent delivery was completed in four hours for a brand new computer board, delivering full functional test capability.

"This is an exciting product for us and very much in line with the technology we provide for the embedded market. All processor based boards require design verification, as well as validation once they have been built and Kozio's solutions have proven both to accelerate this process and to reduce the cost of this stage of development", said Stuart Parker, MD of SDC Systems. "We have many customers that will benefit from this type of off the shelf, flexible solution to establishing the integrity of their hardware."

Kozio builds its knowledge base by working with the latest processor reference designs from Intel, IBM, AMCC and Freescale. This expertise is then built into a carefully designed library system, allowing them to deliver a complete solution. Kozio's hardware verification solution is for organizations that are creating leading-edge technology and is used by board manufacturers, silicon vendors, contract manufacturers and a broad range of embedded system developers.

"We are pleased to announce this new distribution agreement which expands Kozio's presence to the UK and Europe. I am confident that SDC Systems' excellence in sales and customer support, along with Kozio's turnkey embedded software solutions for smart devices, will prove beneficial for many European OEMs and ODMs," stated Kozio's Co-founder and President Joseph Skazinski.
