Kontron was honoured for its continued commitment to the development of multi-core platforms during the Intel Communications Alliance (ICA) Executive Summit on Wednesday 24 October 2007 in Scottsdale, Arizona, USA. Intel selected Kontron to receive its 2007 Multi-core Alignment Award of Excellence in the Alliance Hardware Member category.
Kontron received the award for having the largest number and broadest range of multi-core products based on Intel technology as measured by listings in the Intel ICA Solutions Directory.
Hannes Niederhauser, CEO of Kontron, commented: "To be awarded the 2007 Multi-Core Alignment Award of Excellence reinforces Kontron's commitment to developing innovative embedded computing platforms with the latest multi-core advances. Ultimately, what our customers value is our ability to provide the form factors and system platforms that they require with the processing capabilities they need."
Kontron says it has designed the most comprehensive portfolio of multi-core platforms, with over 30 products in a wide range of form factors and system platforms. Kontron's solid relationship with Intel as a Premier member of the Intel Communications Alliance enables the company to develop its computing platforms in parallel with Intel's processor development; platforms with the newest processing advances can therefore be made available as soon as the latest evolution of multi-core processors are launched. This means that Kontron customers can deliver their applications to market faster.
