Grammar Engine Announces LPC Emulator Support For Upcoming AMD Opteron™ And Eighth-Generation AMD Athlon™ Processors
WESTERVILLE, Ohio --
today announced an LPC Emulator for the upcoming AMD Opteron™ and eighth-generation AMD Athlon™ processors. The LPC Emulator works with Grammar Engine’s PromICE™ to emulate LPC memory chips containing the BIOS on PC motherboards.
“The LPC Emulator makes developing BIOS code for the upcoming AMD Opteron and eighth-generation AMD Athlon processors much faster and easier,” said Bob Blumenscheid, President of Grammar Engine Inc. “Instead of constantly reprogramming LPC memory chips, developers simply compile, load code into the PromICE and instantly begin testing their BIOS modifications.”
“The Grammar Engine LPC Emulator will help simplify the development and test processes for developers optimizing systems to support the upcoming 64-bit AMD processors,” said Rich Heye, vice president platform engineering and infrastructure, Computation Products Group, AMD. “Customers will benefit from being able to optimize 32-bit performance while being able to migrate at will to a 64-bit environment.”
The LPC Emulator is available for LPC memories in 2, 3, 4 and 8 Mbit sizes and in 32 pin PLCC, 32 and 40 pin TSOP footprints. The LPC emulator recognizes and responds to all flash commands issued to the LPC memory by the BIOS. An enhanced model will trace and capture all low level flash commands as they are issued, allowing debugging of BIOS update routines and optimizing PC boot time. Prices for the LPC emulator start at $495. It is available immediately.
