Natick, MA (PRWEB) July 28, 2015
VDC Research (VDC), the leading market intelligence and advisory firm for the connected world, announces that LDRA’s Tool Suite 9.5 was selected as the winner of the annual Embeddy Award at ESC Silicon Valley. The Best in Show award was presented to LDRA on stage in conjunction with the ACE Awards, given by EETimes and EDN.
The award winner was chosen from among the embedded technology innovations announced at ESC.
André Girard, VDC Research’s Senior Analyst of IoT & Embedded Technologies, commented, “In the 9.5 release, LDRA further extended performance of the LDRA tool suite by improving Linux support and by introducing a clear “Uniview” function to help visualize software components and development artifacts. But since advances in functionality are less valuable if the solution is hard to use, we feel advances to both functionality and usability in this release of the LDRA tool suite are particularly important.”
“The demand for functional safety and security continues to increase across many industries,” noted Jim McElroy, spokesperson and VP of Marketing for LDRA. “LDRA’s long-standing experience in providing functional safety technologies enables us to assist our silicon and RTOS partners and our customers in producing high-assurance applications. We are honored that VDC has recognized our contribution in automating and easing the path to verification for the functional safety markets.”
VDC created and named the Embeddy to highlight companies bringing important advances in the embedded software and hardware industries. The Embeddy is awarded for the most cutting-edge product or service for embedded software developers and system engineers.
