The embedded hardware verification challenge

9 November 2012

LONGMONT, Colo.–Kozio is an embedded software company that may have the coolest offices in the business.

Located in a planned community not far from Interstate 25 north of Denver, Kozio engineers enjoy a spacious office on the second floor, near a wine bar, cafe and other commercial establishments, some of them right beneath their feet.

Some employees walk just a few blocks to work. (At right, Kozio’s Bob Potock and Deb Layton pose outside their offices on a quiet street).

It all seems quite relaxed but in fact there’s a lot of energy up on the second floor as Kozio pushes its embedded hardware verification and test solutions into the future.

Central to the company is Kozio’s Verification and Test OS (VTOS), a verification platform for test execution, file transfer and debug. VTOS is configured on a per hardware design basis to optimize for efficiency and speed.

When we parked around the corner and walked up to Kozio’s offices, we ended up getting a demo from sales director Al Arendt on the company’s new Integration Workbench, a PC-based GUI tool that communicates with VTOS running on a Device Under Test (DUT).

Listen as Arendt walks us through his demo:
