SAN JOSE, Calif., April 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Embedded Systems Conference -- As part of its efforts to enhance its expertise in the embedded technology markets, Silicon Valley-based GDA Technologies, a fast-growing supplier of Intellectual Property (IP) and Electronic Design Services (EDS) has joined the ARM(R) Approved Design Center Program.

The demonstrated expertise of GDA Technologies in ASIC and SOC (system on a chip) design combined with ARM technology will help the company provide customers and partners with excellent, cost-effective solutions and assist in accelerating their innovation.

"After a thorough audit of GDA Technologies confirming that they have the capability to develop quality ARM processor-based systems at the System on a Chip (SOC) and System Level we were happy to invite them to join the ARM Approved Design Center Program," said Stephen Jeffries, Approved Design Center Program Manager, ARM. "Their addition to the program adds significantly to the range of capabilities and services on offer to Partners looking for help with their ARM processor-based designs."

GDA Technologies has so far developed several ARM processor-based systems at the SOC and System level.

"We are delighted to be selected for the ARM Approved Design Center Program which will help us solidify our leadership position in the SOC design and embedded software design for digital consumer and mobile market space," said Ravi Thummarukudy, VP and GM of the IC Division at GDA Technologies. "With this relationship with ARM our experienced SOC and embedded software development team will be able to offer great advantages to our customers.

"We have excellent expertise in the peripheral and interface IP blocks and solid system-level verification experience including test environment development and test bench creation. Our FPGA and board level experience will enable quick prototyping of the SOC and develop embedded software based on these platforms quickly," Thummarukudy added.

About the ARM Approved Design Center Program

ARM Approved Design Center Partners must go through a strict approval process to qualify as an ARM Approved Design Center. This includes a design flow audit, training on implementing designs with ARM processors, tools, AMBA(R) interface peripherals and development techniques. Furthermore, each Approved Design Center must demonstrate its own unique skills in specific technology domains, as well as end-market expertise. The ARM Approved Design Center Program also provides additional benefits such as geographic and time-zone locality and local language support.
