FEBRUARY 14--MathStar (Hillsboro, OR, USA; www.mathstar.com), a fabless semiconductor company specializing in high-performance programmable logic, has introduced the Certified Design Center (CDC) program. Designers of performance-demanding applications who are migrating to MathStar's Arrix family of field programmable object arrays (FPOAs) will now have access to experienced design-service partners carefully selected and trained by MathStar. Wind River Professional Services and Adaptive Micro-Ware were named charter members of the CDC program.

"MathStar's CDC program lets us connect our customers and their engineers with highly capable design houses that are experienced with our Arrix product family," said Dan Sweeney, MathStar COO. "MathStar's CDC partners can assist our new customers in speeding time to market and tailoring our FPOA technology to their applications in machine vision, professional video, and medical imaging."

Wind River Professional Services, an integral part of Wind River Systems, helps its customers design, develop, and deploy innovative products such as professional video devices, industrial-grade cameras, and complex embedded systems. Many of these products require processing rates that can only be accomplished with higher-performance programmable logic.

Adaptive Micro-Ware has experience working with the FPOA in performance-demanding applications. Said Bob Kniskern, president of Adaptive Micro-Ware, said, "We first selected the FPOA for work with a major telecommunications company that needed a higher-performance form of programmable logic to help compress video for storage and distribution over the Internet. Since then, we've been able to leverage this investment into design services contracts with other firms."

MathStar expects to expand the CDC program to include more partners in North America and to extend it to Europe during 2007.
