CAMBRIDGE, UK, February 4, 2004, - Crossware (, a leading embedded software tools developer, has been selected as a member of Motorola's prestigious Design Alliance Program, a worldwide network of qualified third-party developers working with Motorola's embedded solutions.

Crossware was selected for the program due to its highly acclaimed ColdFire Development Suite. By forming alliances with industry-leading specialists, such as Crossware, Motorola aims to provide its customers with quick and easy access to tried and tested tools that help to accelerate the time-to-market process.

Crossware's ColdFire Development Suite supports Motorola's expanding range of MCF528X microcontrollers as well as the other series 2, 3 and 4 ColdFire microprocessors, and allows developers to create, build and debug their ColdFire programs both with and without hardware.
