Kozio Supports MIPS32 Processor Architecture and VoIP Products; Expands Processor Architecture Support to Add to Networking, Broadband and VoIP Capabilities

Longmont, Colo. (PRWEB) September 1, 2005

Kozio, Inc., a leading provider of embedded software for system-level hardware testing, today announced plans for support of the MIPS32 processor architecture with general availability October 1. Kozio provides a comprehensive system-level test package for custom hardware platforms with fast delivery times for supported processors. Support includes the ability for Kozio to provide outstanding system-level test coverage for any hardware product using a MIPS32 processor. All Kozio products will be updated to include MIPS32 processor support.

The move to add this support was spurred by the company's growing relationship with key customers and the resulting need to provide a complete test solution for Voice-over-IP (VoIP) products. Kozio develops turnkey software solutions that verify design and validate hardware for any embedded single-board computer systems for a variety of applications, including networking and communications technology.

"Integrating support for the MIPS32 processor architecture continues Kozio’s leadership position as the only embedded system-level test provider with the tools to accelerate board-level test," notes Kozio President Joseph Skazinski. "Our products help manufacturers and hardware designers reduce their effort while deploying more reliable technology faster than ever before."

The new release of Kozio's kDiagnostics software will support MIPS as well as offer complete digital signal processor (DSP) and VoIP test suites. Specifically, support will be added for:

    MIPS32 4K Core, a solution for multi-CPU system-on-a-chip designs, which are becoming increasingly popular in next-generation networking and broadband applications.

    Texas Instruments' TNETV1060 CPE Gateway Solution, a highly integrated software and silicon system-on-a-chip designed to address the requirements of residential and small office/home office (SOHO) gateways.

    Texas Instruments' programmable TMS320C55x™ DSP.

Kozio's new software versions will also deliver Foreign eXchange Office (FXO) and Foreign eXchange Subscriber (FXS) test suites for the two most common interfaces (ports or plugs) found in analog telephony environments

In addition to the general software release supporting the MIPS 32 architecture, Kozio also ports all of its comprehensive embedded system-level test products to custom platforms. This service is included with the price of a software license and can be completed, on average, in one week.

Kozio delivers a complete diagnostics and functional test solution for hardware board bring-up, manufacturing test and production-ready power-on self-test through its products: kDiagnostics for system-level diagnostics of embedded designs; kMfgTest for automated embedded manufacturing and functional test; and kPOST for off-the-shelf Power-On Self-Test (POST). These solutions from Kozio provide more complete testing throughout the development process, resulting in fewer spins in the prototype stages and fewer defects in the final product. Boards move from design through prototyping and manufacturing to release in less time, with less cost and fewer defects.

Kozio's latest software release includes new, enhanced, and extended support for a variety of technologies across all its products. In the past quarter Kozio has added drivers and test suites for NAND Flash devices, Host and Device USB test suites, PCI bridge support, LCD support, expanded Altera FPGA support and enhanced Compact Flash support. These new features expand on the already extensive Kozio Test Library, enhancing the company's leadership role in providing the most comprehensive hardware test software for board bring-up, manufacturing test and power-on self-test (POST).

PC Healthboost Reconstructs Its Official Blog

Boston, MA (PRWEB) December 18, 2013

In order to serve its customers even better in 2014, PC Health Boost decided to reconstruct its official blog. On each page, product users will enjoy a much easier-to-navigate, updated interface of this top registry cleaner.

"Our number one priority is to make sure our customers stay informed," says Public Relations Director Erin Walsh, "We want them to know how to use PC Healthboost 3.0, but we also want them to know how to fix registry errors and speed up their slow computers."

The Official PC HealthBoost blog regularly posts tutorials with screenshots, images or videos. On it, the company also displays infographics pertaining to technology and important information about malware and screen freezes. Beginning to intermediate computer users often refer to this information displayed to help them resolve specific computer problems.

For instance, people might not realize that stored passwords and download histories can cause slow computer performance. Likewise, cluttering up the hard drive with excess files and programs can reduce PC efficiency.

The PC HealthBoost blog provides the steps needed to help everyone with computer problems resolve them. It also shows customers how to use the latest product features, such as junk file deletion and privacy item removal.

Peter Dunbar and Amit Mehta first started the PC Healthboost project in 2010 in Boston, Massachusetts. For more information about this registry cleaner and how to fix a slow computer, please visit

Ergonomic course will help schools to protect the workforce of the future

London (PRWEB UK) 18 December 2013

AN exciting new e-learning course has been launched by Cardinus Risk Management to help keep young people safe from the health risks of poor posture, careless use of electronic devices and bad manual handling activity.

The past few years have seen a significant increase in the number of children showing signs of musculoskeletal disorder with more than 72 per cent of primary school children suffering back or neck pain in the last 12 months. An increasing number of children are requiring NHS treatment and taking medication.

Almost all of these problems can be attributed to the dramatic rise in children’s use of computers, smartphones, games consoles and iPad-style tablet devices. Poor posture when working and relaxing with technology is also a major contributing factor and the need to carry heavy school bags also plays its part.

Jon Abbott, managing director – ergonomics and safety at Cardinus Risk Management, said, “It’s important that we raise children’s awareness of the importance of healthy spine posture, at school and at home. The long-term benefits are many and varied; the cost of failing to address musculoskeletal problems in children could be high.

“School is a child’s place of work and the health and safety considerations that apply to adults in the respect of technology, seating, lifting and carrying, should also apply to children. They are also at risk from the bad habits they develop at home.

“Healthy Working MOVE will teach children how to stay comfortable and safe by using technology sensibly, sitting properly when working and relaxing and managing their school bags correctly.”

Healthy Working MOVE has been developed by Cardinus in association with Health and Safety Laboratory, an agency of the Health and Safety Executive, and is based on an award-winning training programme called Healthy Working that helps to protect adult workers around the world. The e-learning course uses engaging online activities to teach young people about the safe use of technology. There is a version for children under 12 years old and a version for the over-12s.

Jon Abbott added, “We all want to protect our children and spare them pain and discomfort, but as a successful business we also see them as the workforce of the future. By acting now to educate them about healthy working we are potentially preventing a catastrophic and expensive problem in years to come.

“The experience Cardinus has with its ergonomic training programmes for corporate clients worldwide, plus our close relationship with the Health and Safety Laboratory means we are in a great position to help protect children. Healthy Working MOVE is our first response to the problem and we have taken the decision to make it available free to education establishments across the country.”

Cardinus Risk Management has been developing effective display screen equipment (DSE) and ergonomics programmes since 1995. Its customers include many of the world’s leading organisations, central government departments and unions.

The Cardinus approach to effective DSE management is to apply simple programmes that provide a modular, adaptable solution. Healthy Working, the innovative online DSE assessment and e-learning solution, provides award-winning solutions that are fully endorsed by the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management.

Healthy Working MOVE takes all the expertise that went into Healthy Working and presents it in a format that young people will enjoy and that is available completely free of charge to all schools and colleges via the website at: For more information, schools and colleges should telephone 020 7469 0200.

Cardinus directors, experts and consultants are available for interview and quotes on industry issues. The full range of Cardinus consultancy services can be seen on its website, or you can telephone 0207 469 0200 (UK) 1-866-966-3420 (US).
