ztex is a firmware Kit with a corresponding Driver API which is especially designed for the ZTEX Modules but which should work with all other EZ-USB based hardware. The Firmware Kit is written in C and assembled using a powerful macro processor. This allows you to specify all required settings using by a few commands. The necessary USB descriptors and the descriptor handling routines are generated automatically. The package runs under Linux and Windows (porting to other operating systems should be no problem). The Java driver API allows the development of platform-independent device drivers.
CoreTML framework is a template configuration system. It is based on the idea of parametrized templates that are created by inserting special content into source code files. These templates can later be used to generate output files depending upon parameters chosen by the user. CoreTML framework was created primarily to provide a platform for the design and deployment of semiconductor IP cores on a hardware description language (HDL) level (i.e. VHDL or Verilog).
