Total Phase Donates Test Equipment to the FreeBSD Foundation

SUNNYVALE, CA - March 24, 2009 - Total Phase is pleased to donate over $1,000 in hardware protocol analyzers to the FreeBSD Foundation to support development of the FreeBSD operating system.

"The FreeBSD Foundation appreciates the generous donation by Total Phase," said Sam Leffler, Director of the FreeBSD Foundation. "The Beagle USB 480 Protocol Analyzer will be a useful tool in diagnosing problems and conducting performance analyses for our developers."

"The Beagle USB 480 analyzer will be used for not only developing the USB framework, including the NEWUSB and USB device drivers, but also debugging problems found by users," commented Weongyo Jeong, FreeBSD developer. "This analyzer will allow us to find and detect problems easily through monitoring the bus so the USB frameworks and drivers, especially the wireless drivers, will be more stable, robust, and well supported."

"Total Phase is proud to support the FreeBSD Foundation," remarked Derek Fung, senior engineer. "From the very beginning, Total Phase has supported Linux and the wider open source community. We are very pleased that the Beagle USB 480 analyzer will contribute to the ongoing development of the FreeBSD operating system."
