Tabula signs Appletec as its distributor and sales representative in Israel to meet the growing demands in the country’s communications, military, and industrial markets
New-Tech 2012, Gane Hatarocha, Israel, May 14, 2012 Tabula Inc. announces an agreement with Israeli distributor Appletec, for Appletec to distribute and support Tabula’s ABAX family of 3D Programmable Logic Devices (3PLD). Appletec is a leading Israeli distributor and representative focusing on the design and distribution of electronics, optical components, and value-added services to the communications, defense, and industrial markets. “The reach and insight of Appletec into Israel’s key markets will prove instrumental to Tabula as we extend our worldwide sales presence” stated Steve Haynes, Tabula’s Vice President of Worldwide Sales. “Israel’s communication and military markets are progressing at an incredible rate and developers are looking for companies who can offer high performance programmable devices. Our family of 3PLD products delivers unmatched capabilities such as high bandwidth dataflow, on-chip memory capacity and on-chip memory bandwidth, which are critical to these markets”.
According to a report developed by the Israeli Association of Electronics and Software Industries (www.iaesi.org.il), the Israeli electronic industry exceeded $17B in sales in 2010, and a major portion of that market was driven by communications and military systems. That, explains Aaron Applebaum, General Manager of Appletec, is a key reason that makes Israel such an attractive region. “In Israel there are over 3000 technology companies, and over 200 new startups are created every year”.
Opportunities in Israel abound for Tabula’s 3PLDs products. 3PLDs are a great fit for communications hardware such as network switches and routers, network monitoring, video conferencing and video compression. Furthermore, military applications such as battlefield/secure communications, radar systems, missile systems, computing, and fire control, can also leverage the high performance of 3PLD products.
Tabula’s products will be featured at the Appletec booth (#115) at the New-Tech 2012 conference on May 22 and 23. For conference details, go to: http://www.new-techevents.com/index.php/events/new-tech-exhibition-2012.
