MILPITAS, Calif.--Xicor Inc. here today announced a marketing and distribution pact with Kanda Systems Ltd. of Wales, which will provide PC-based development kits for Xicor's system management and mixed-signal products.
The system management development kits will allow Xicor's customers to program low-voltage sense trip points, real-time clock alarms levels, and store other information in integrated EEPROM memory. The mixed-signal kits will allow designers to program digitally controlled potentiometers with resistance values, op-amp gains, comparator threashold levels, and other key parameters in analog circuits.
A special radio-frequency development kit will provide all of the features of the mixed-signal kit plus a pre-configured RF board for optimization of Xicor products for RF applications.
Kanda will design, manufacture, and market these development tools, under the agreement. Both Xicor and Kanda will distribute these tools.
