Q: Do you sell any of these products?
A: No, please look at the Ordering link on each product page.
Q: What term or period does the certification cover for each platform tested with the current release of 800xA?
A: If there are no major changes to the platform the certificate has no time limit. A major release of 800xA lives for at least 7 years out of which at least 3 are in active sales.
Q: Is re-certification required for each new release of 800xA?
A: Yes, for each major release.
Q: Is re-certification required with each intel refresh ?
A: If the Intel refresh causes a chipset change re-certification is needed. BIOS upgrades usually don't require re-certification.
Q: Do you provide a blanket certification for the platform regardless of configuration, or does each configuration need to be tested? If so, is there an additional fee for testing additional configuration?
A: If the products/configurations in the platform is very similar we normally do a "family" certification, i.e. we test one of the products and let you sign a declaration of conformance stating that the other products are similar. We will charge you 500USD for the declaration of conformance.
Q: Do you offer any partnership, OEM or channel opportunities to re-sell our hardware platforms with your software?
A: No. But we have worked with other suppliers to set up B2B sites. This always makes it easier for our customer projects when they purchase their hardware.
Q: Does half duplex generate collisions?
A: Yes, in a half-duplex Ethernet network, a collision is the result of two devices on the same Ethernet network attempting to transmit data at exactly the same time.
Ethernet uses CSMA/CD (Carrier Sense Multiple Access/Collision Detect) as its collision detection method.
