Newest ARM ATC offers foundation for high-quality embedded systems design in the Pearl River Delta
SHENZHEN, CHINA AND CAMBRIDGE, UK – Aug 3, 2006 – Shenzhen uCdragon Technology Co., Ltd. [uCdragon], a leading embedded system development company in China, and ARM [(LSE: ARM); (Nasdaq: ARMHY)] today announced that uCdragon has been certified as the sixth ARM® Approved Training Center (ATC) in mainland China. UCdragon will provide ARM technology-based development training to Chinese embedded system engineers to help them acquire advanced skills in ARM Powered® system design.
In its four years of operation in China, ARM has become the most widely adopted architecture within the Chinese embedded system community, according to a 2005 survey by EDN China. The pervasiveness of ARM technology-based systems is generating growing demand for experienced engineers. The ARM ATC Program expands the ARM ecosystem by helping Chinese engineers to improve their skills in designing and developing ARM Powered embedded systems, ultimately helping the electronics industry address a critical need for more highly-skilled SoC designers.
“The Pearl River Delta is the center of Chinese electronics manufacturing and more and more companies in this region are selecting the ARM architecture for their embedded system designs and generating strong demand for proficient engineers,” said Jianhua Wu, general manager, uCdragon. “As a certified ARM ATC, uCdragon will be able to leverage our extensive expertise and knowledge obtained from ARM technology-based CPU development to provide ARM training courses to Chinese professionals, especially those in the Pearl River Delta.”
“ARM is committed to establishing a vibrant industry ecosystem in China to help Chinese engineers access advanced ARM technologies, and learn how to use them to create innovative designs,” said Dr. Jun Tan, president, ARM China. “Through the expansion of the ATC Program in China, we will continue to meet the growing industry demand for certified training, and help local developers improve their skills, create higher-quality designs, and significantly reduce design cycles.”
