Sunnyvale, CA — (press release excerpt) — Jungo announced today that DriverWizard, a graphical tool for hardware detection and diagnostics, is now being offered as a stand-alone hardware debugger for developers of systems based on Linux, Solaris, and Windows (95, 98, ME, NT, 2000). Until now, Jungo's software tools have targeted the software development market. With the release of this new product, called Hardware Debugger, Jungo is extending its range of tools to address the needs of hardware developers as well.

Hardware Debugger is a Point & Click application which allows detection of USB / PCI / Compact PCI / ISA / ISA PnP / EISA hardware and its resources, without having to develop a driver. Hardware Engineers presented with untested hardware will be able to access their hardware's memory and I/O ranges, listen to interrupts, and define and access registers, in order to diagnose, verify, and debug new hardware. Hardware Debugger for USB allows monitoring and transferring data through pipes.

Hardware Debugger includes a remote access capability, which enables developers to access hardware on any remote target machine from a host machine, via any network connection (LAN, WAN, Dialup, etc.). Developers can test and diagnose hardware (including USB devices) from the host machine. Remote Hardware Debugger can currently be installed on any target machine, running Linux, Windows (most flavors), Solaris, VxWorks, and OS/2. The host machine can run under Linux, Solaris, and Windows NT/2000.

A free, full-featured, 30 day evaluation version of Hardware Debugger is available for download from the Jungo's website.
