ADLINK Technology Inc., a provider of embedded computing products and Application Ready Intelligent Platforms (ARIPs) for industrial automation, communications, medical, defense, and transportation industries, announced an agreement with Elma Electronic Inc, a designer and manufacturer of electronic enclosures and passive electronic components, for the sale of ADLINK products in integrated embedded computing systems throughout North America.
“Elma’s solid presence in the mil/aero and communications industries will help us to better access these evolving markets,” said Matthias Huber, VP, marketing, ADLINK Americas. “Our two companies have complementary goals in offering standards-based designs to meet customer needs and having the knowledge and expertise to tailor solutions to specific applications.”
“ADLINK rounds out our product portfolio, allowing us to provide solutions across a large range of applications and architectures,” said Shan Morgan, senior VP of Elma Electronic Inc. ”Working with a partner with a strong Intel relationship and a wide range of Intel- based boards will help us continue our development of long-life solutions based on industry standards.”
Elma provides ADLINK Technology with a channel through which ADLINK's products can be incorporated into a complete embedded solution.
