-- Algotronix Ltd., Edinburgh, UK was presented with two prestigious awards this week, recognising its contribution to the industry. The innovative DesignTag product can uncover counterfeit or remarked semiconductor components.
On Monday 3rd November, the company received the Institution of Engineering and Technology’s (IET) Innovation Awards 2008 for Electronics.
Thursday, 6th November, saw Algotronix scoop the Emerging Technology Company of the Year Award from the National Microelectronics Institute (NMI).
Commenting on the two awards, Tom Kean, Algotronix Managing Director, said, “What a fantastic week! It is incredible to receive recognition from two such highly esteemed organisations and a glowing commendation of the innovation in small UK companies”.
Paul Dillien, from High Tech Marketing provides sales and marketing services for Algotronix. He said, “The DesignTag technology has been proven on FPGAs, and we are now looking to partner with semiconductor vendors who are suffering financial loss from counterfeit components. This development will unleash the full potential to uncover fake or remarked devices that are having such a negative impact on our industry”.
