Allegro Releases RomPager® 4.6 Comprehensive Embedded Internet Connectivity Suite

Powerful embedded connectivity products, including UPnP™/DLNA™, Device Management and Web Server

 

SAN JOSE, CA and BOXBOROUGH, MA – April 3, 2007 – Today at the Embedded Systems Conference Allegro announced the launch of RomPager 4.6 embedded Internet connectivity software suite, offering OEMs the ability to easily integrate next-generation connectivity features into their devices. Allegro, a leader in the embedded Internet connectivity and UPnP/DLNA spaces, offers connectivity software used in devices ranging from the Microsoft® Xbox 360 to Cisco IP-based phones and gateways. RomPager 4.6 is available immediately, and will be part of Allegro’s exhibit at the Embedded Systems Conference, San Jose, booth #3033, April 3-6, 2007.

 

The RomPager 4.6 Product Suite offers design engineers a comprehensive solution for enabling embedded devices with Internet standards-based software. Using the RomPager Product Suite, design engineers can easily incorporate the following functionalities into their embedded devices:

  • Web Server, offering a powerful and compelling interface as well as a host of security features;
  • Web Client, empowering embedded devices to query a remote server to check for updates, with a host of security features;
  • XML, enabling embedded devices to exchange data using XML with other web servers;
  • POP/SMTP, for sending and receiving emails with attachments;
  • UPnP/DLNA, to leverage a wealth of software built upon standards-based protocols for consumer electronics devices;
  • CLI, for Cisco IOS-style device management;
  • Simple network time protocol (SNTP), to ensure synchronization;
  • Radius, enabling software engineers to easily build authentication capabilities into their devices.

 

Solving a Growing Challenge
Currently, numerous design engineers must build their own Internet communications functionality over the operating system and TCP/IP stack they have chosen. This is becoming a more challenging task as devices must include increasingly complex and user-friendly communications capabilities in compressed delivery schedules.

 

“Over 10 million Cisco IP-based phones and gateways rely on Allegro software,” said Robert Van Andel, CEO and President of Allegro. “Each phone boasts a Web server, Web client and XML parser/framer which facilitates interaction with the Internet. This is just one example of the functionality Allegro enables in the new world of connected devices.”
