MARCH 3--BittWare Inc. (Concord, NH; www.bittware.com), a supplier of TigerSHARC and SHARC DSP boards, has announced record profits for 2003. A significant increase in bookings (up 32% vs. 2002) translated into double-digit sales growth and a five-times growth in bottom-line performance.
BittWare attributes the growth to both its team of dedicated employees and to its commitment to developing high-quality products based on the latest technologies. Specifically driving the increase in sales were BittWare's product lines based on the TigerSHARC processors from Analog Devices. The company saw great demand for its first family of TigerSHARC DSP boards, which features the 300-MHz ADSP-TS101S TigerSHARC. And it has seen even greater demand for its new product family featuring the 600-MHz ADSP-TS201S TigerSHARC. The new product line, the T2 family, features an innovative architecture called ATLANTiS (Advanced Transfer Link Architecture for New TigerSHARC) that results in processing performance, I/O throughput, and flexibility that surpasses all other boards.
"We've seen a huge response to our first ADSP-TS201 TigerSHARC boards," said Darren Taylor, vice president of sales and marketing of BittWare. "These boards leverage the strengths of both the TigerSHARC processor and BittWare's ATLANTiS architecture, and we only expect that demand to grow as we introduce PCI, CPCI, VME, and PMC versions of the T2 family boards in 2004."
