MathStar, Inc. Introduces MathStar Certified Design Center Program
Wind River Professional Services and Adaptive Micro-Ware are charter members in a program that connects FPOA experts with designers of performance-demanding applications
Hillsboro, Ore., February 13, 2007 – MathStar, Inc. (NASDAQ: MATH), a fabless semiconductor company specializing in high-performance programmable logic, announced today its latest design service with the introduction of the Certified Design Center (CDC) program. Designers of performance-demanding applications who are migrating to MathStar’s Arrix™ family of field programmable object arrays (FPOAs) will now have access to experienced design-service partners carefully selected and trained by MathStar. Wind River Professional Services and Adaptive Micro-Ware were also named charter members of the CDC program.
“MathStar’s CDC program lets us connect our customers and their engineers with highly capable design houses that are experienced with our Arrix product family,” said Dan Sweeney, MathStar COO. “MathStar’s CDC partners can assist our new customers in speeding time-to-market and tailoring our FPOA technology to their applications in machine vision, professional video and medical imaging. I couldn’t ask for two better charter members than Wind River Professional Services and Adaptive Micro-Ware.”
Wind River Professional Services, an integral part of Wind River Systems, helps its customers design, develop, and deploy innovative products such as professional video devices, industrial-grade cameras and complex embedded systems. Many of these products require processing rates that can only be accomplished with higher-performance programmable logic.
“Joining MathStar’s CDC enables us to offer our design services expertise to customers who find conventional programmable logic insufficient for their applications,” said Chris Perret, VP/GM of worldwide professional services for Wind River Professional Services. “MathStar is leading the way to the next-generation of programmable logic with its Arrix family of FPOAs, and we’re excited to move ahead with them.”
Adaptive Micro-Ware has extensive experience working with the FPOA in performance-demanding applications. “We have enjoyed great success working with MathStar and the Arrix FPOA,” said Bob Kniskern, president of Adaptive Micro-Ware. “We first selected the FPOA for work with a major telecommunications company that needed a higher-performance form of programmable logic to help compress video for storage and distribution over the Internet. Since then, we’ve been able to leverage this investment into design services contracts with other firms.”
MathStar expects to expand the CDC program to include more partners in North America and to extend it to Europe during 2007.
