Performance Technologies Introduces Integrated Ziatech 2.16 Platforms for Creation of High Performance Embedded Applications

11/13/2002 - Performance Technologies announced new additions to its ZiatechTM product family of CompactPCI® Single Board Computers, platforms and components. This expanded product offering helps original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) quickly and cost-effectively implement standards-based hardware systems, as well as reduce time-consuming integration steps from multiple vendors.

With the new products — the Ziatech ZT 5088e General Purpose PICMG® 2.16 Platform, the ZT 5085e Redundant Host PICMG 2.16 Platform and the ZT 5524e Single Board Computer — Performance Technologies offers one of the most comprehensive suites of complementary PICMG 2.16-based products in the market. These products are the company's first since its acquisition of the Ziatech Computing Products Group from Intel Corporation in September 2002.

Performance Technologies' suite of products provides one of the highest levels of integration to the communications, industrial or military sectors. Its product lines are capable of delivering complete system-level solutions, which include platforms, single board computers, Ethernet switches, chassis management, network access, SS7 signaling and a full suite of communications protocol and development software.

"Performance Technologies can now assist customers earlier in the system-level planning and design phases of their projects, and can ultimately offer a broader, more tightly integrated product solution with our Ziatech, IPnexusTM and SEGwayTM product lines," said Reg Cable, vice president of Marketing with Performance Technologies. "The addition of the Ziatech Computing Products Group allows us to be a more strategic vendor to our customers with a much more comprehensive offering."
