2005 brings growth and profitability for BittWare

JANUARY 16--BittWare (Long Beach, CA; www.bittware.com), a supplier of hybrid (DSP and FPGA) board-level solutions based on Analog Devices' SHARC and Altera's FPGA technology, has just completed its most successful year in 17 years of operation. Sales, bookings, and profits all exceeded expectations and made 2005 BittWare's most profitable year on record.

Driving the increase in sales were BittWare's product lines based on the TigerSHARC processors from Analog Devices and Stratix II FPGAs from Altera, along with the demand for the new T2 Family of hybrid COTS DSP/FPGA boards. This new product family features the 600-MHz ADSP-TS201S TigerSHARC and BittWare's ATLANTiS architecture implemented in a Stratix II FPGA, resulting in processing performance, I/O throughput, and flexibility that outperforms all other COTS boards for continuous real-time signal-processing applications.

In addition, BittWare has announced that it has teamed up with Mercury Computer Systems (Chelmsford, MA) through a licensing agreement enabling BittWare to utilize Mercury Computer Systems' Serial RapidIO endpoint on its B2-AMC (B2AM) board. Both companies have committed to long-term support of the Serial RapidIO AMC solution. The B2AM board supports universal baseband processing for any wireless application including WiMAX, Software Defined Radio, and Super 3G.
