Kozio releases VTOS support for Sitara ARM AM335x Cortex - A8 processors

USA:  Kozio Inc. announced the release of the Verification and Test OS (VTOS) Standard and Advanced Packages for Sitara ARM AM335x Cortex‒ A8 processors from Texas Instruments Inc. (TI).

Both VTOS Packages provide an out-of-the-box board-based design verification and debug solution for AM335x designs containing DDR2/DDR3, NAND flash, NOR flash, SRAM, UARTS, I2C and McSPI.
The VTOS AM335x Advanced Package release contains an additional generic display driver allowing the user to graphically modify a device tree and provide simple display initialization scripts to enable full functional testing of any display.

VTOS provides a complete hardware test environment that helps find hardware design errors more quickly and improve overall design quality. VTOS runs on the prototype hardware without the need for an application OS or test executive. Users can run functional tests, write scripts, transfer files, trace test execution and more. VTOS seamlessly transitions to the production test floor saving time and lowering test development costs.

"By releasing VTOS support for TI's Sitara ARM AM335x Cortex-A8 processors, Kozio will provide a processor-specific design verification environment, which is ideal for debugging and fault isolation," said Russell Crane, product marketing managers, Sitara ARM processors, TI. "This makes it easier for developers to accelerate their time to market and deliver high-quality products with reduced risk and cost. TI is pleased to see them reach this milestone and extend its commitment to offer a robust hardware and software ecosystem."

"Users of the Sitara AM335x processors can now use VTOS to find prototype hardware design errors more quickly and improve overall design quality. In addition, VTOS's configurability enables users to be running on their AM335x prototype hardware in minutes," stated Bob Potock, VP, Kozio. "Kozio will continue to work closely with TI and expand its processor coverage."
