ITHACA, NY, February 5, 2013 – MCCI® Corporation, a leading developer of USB drivers and firmware for the high-volume personal computer and portable device markets, today announced that its TrueTask® USB host and device software platform is available on Synopsys' DesignWare® ARCTM Processor Cores and the DesignWare ARC MQX real-time operating system (RTOS).
Introduced this past October, MCCI’s highly portable, fast, and efficient TrueTask USB platform is pre-tested and pre-verified, so designers can focus on optimizing their products, and don’t have to worry about developing a USB stack in-house, or porting one from another vendor.
“MCCI’s USB software has been tested with tens of thousands of devices, and is installed in over one billion USB devices. The USB installed base is huge, with over ten billion devices shipped, and hundreds of thousands of different kinds of devices, all of which must work correctly,” said Terry Moore, CEO, MCCI. “MCCI provides a complete solution, including services, and has the expertise to support an entire deployment, now and into the future.”
“MCCI recognizes the need for designers in the highly competitive mobile device market to have a readily available and robust USB software stack to accelerate time-to-market and reduce cost,” said Mike Thompson, senior manager, ARC Processor Marketing at Synopsys. “By offering the TrueTask USB platform on Synopsys’ ARC processor cores, MCCI delivers a reliable solution that can reduce our mutual customers’ integration risk.”
MCCI not only licenses software, but also offers design consultation, integration and customization services. MCCI, one of only nine certified USB-IF test houses worldwide, offers extensive testing and verification services for USB developers.
