CMX UNVEILS FREE ETHERNET DRIVER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM.

CMX Systems, designer of real-time operating systems and TCP/IP software, has unveiled its "CMX Ethernet Driver Program," offering embedded systems engineers a free Ethernet driver customization service with the purchase of the company's CMX-MicroNet embedded TCP/IP software stack. The CMX Ethernet Driver Program virtually guarantees that the main processor in a client's particular hardware design will work with their chosen Ethernet controller - a must for embedded systems engineers needing to implement networking connectivity in their products and cost savings in their design cycles.

"We understand that our customers are always looking to reduce development time," said Chuck Behrmann, president of CMX Systems. "CMX-MicroNet's amazingly small footprint and high-performance functionality combined with our new Ethernet Driver Program provides our customers with a more complete, off- the-shelf TCP/IP solution for faster, more seamless networking connectivity."

To take advantage of the CMX Ethernet Driver Program, the embedded systems engineer must be using one of the wide range of processors currently supported by CMX-MicroNet, including the 8051, the Atmel AVR, Hitachi's H8S/300H and H8S/2000, the Infineon 80C16x, the Microchip PIC18CXXX, the Mitsubishi M16C, the Philips 8051-XA, the STMicroelectronics ST10, and ZiLOG's Z80, Z180, and eZ80 series of processors. In addition, the customer's Ethernet controller must be a mainstream product, and the customer must be able to provide a fully designed and tested board into which an emulator can be plugged for the software driver development/testing. Once these criteria are met, CMX will craft a mutually satisfactory development schedule with each client on a case-by-case basis.

About CMX-MicroNet:

CMX-MicroNet is a scaled down TCP/IP software stack with a total ROM footprint of less than 20Kb for 8-bit processors or those 16-bit processors that require a single chip solution with no external memory. CMX-MicroNet supports more 8-bit and 16-bit microprocessors than any other existing solution, including full support for all derivatives of the 8051, the Atmel AVR, Hitachi's H8S/300H and H8S/2000, the Infineon 80C16x, the STMicroelectronics ST10, and most recently, the Microchip PIC18CXXX, the Mitsubishi M16C, the Philips 8051-XA, and ZiLOG's Z80, Z180, and eZ80 series of processors. Due to CMX-MicroNet's inherently flexible design, developers also have the option to port to other platforms as well.

Pricing and Availability:

The CMX Ethernet Driver Program is currently available and free to all CMX- MicroNet customers. For information on how to sign up for the CMX Ethernet Driver Program contact John Rodrigues, V.P. of Sales & Marketing at 508/872-7675 or at jr@cmx.com. CMX-MicroNet is currently available, starting at US $5,500 for the base system. All CMX software includes complete source code, no royalties on deployed products, and free technical support/updates.

About CMX Systems:

Since its inception in 1990, CMX Systems, Inc., provides its customers with all of the tools needed to program their embedded applications. The company's core business is to develop and support real-time, multi-tasking operating systems (RTOS) and TCP/IP stacks for a wide variety of 8-bit, 16-bit, and 32-bit microcomputers, microprocessors, and digital signal processors. The company's CMX-RTX, CMX-RTXS, and CMX-Tiny+ real-time multi- tasking operating systems support more than 40 processor families and over 30 C-compiler vendors. CMX also develops and supports products that enhance the user's ability to create, test and debug application code, including CMXKAware, CMXBug, and CMXTracker. CMX TCP/IP, a full- featured TCP/IP stack for 16- and 32-bit processors, also is sold by the company. CMX recently released CMX-MicroNet, which is a unique TCP/IP stack that is targeted for 8-bit processor target platforms. In addition to developing RTOSes, debugging tools, and networking software, CMX also distributes a wide variety of C tools, including compilers, assemblers, linkers, librarians, simulators and ROM debuggers from many well-known manufacturers.
