Newbury Park, Calif.- The Softworks Group launched Nov. 26 its Fusion 6.0 networking software, the latest release in its transmission control protocol/Internet protocol-based (TCP/IP) product line for OEMs building connectivity into electronic products. Softworks Group is a division of NetSilicon Inc. (Waltham, Mass.).
'We believe Fusion 6.0 is not only the fastest TCP/IP application technology, but also the best point-to-point protocol (PPP) available,' says Dan Bastecki, Softworks Group's engineering director. 'OEMs can use Fusion 6.0 for SOHO routers, set-top boxes, medical devices, satellite links and network storage equipment, while reducing development risks and costs.'
Fusion's TCP/IP-based software enables intelligent devices to connect to networks and out to the Internet. Softworks Group provides networking communication protocols designed specifically for embedded applications. Fusion is written entirely in ANSI C language, and is processor, operating system and compiler independent. Design engineers can use Fusion 6.0 to choose which features they need for their applications, which conserves memory and maintains performance.
In addition, Fusion software includes a RFC 1661-compliant PPP with improved remote access server functionality, which enables robust and guaranteed data delivery. Fusion also provides Internet connectivity for numerous customers, such as IBM, Philips, Sony and Siemens, which have widely deployed, diverse product lines.
Also, Fusion supports popular processors, Ethernet chips, boards, serial interfaces, real time operating systems and development toolkits. The software's platform-independent architecture ensures that present implementations can migrate to future technology, which can help reduce lifecycle costs.
