Applied Data Systems Announces Board Support Package (BSP) Certification by Microsoft for its Bitsy Products

9/13/2002 - Applied Data Systems (ADS), a Microsoft Gold-level Partner and leading developer of Intel StrongARM and XScale-based application-ready systems, has successfully completed Microsoft's rigorous Windows CE 3.0 BSP Certification Test. ADS internally tests each of its off-the-shelf platforms against Microsoft's standards and this validation strengthens the ADS internal certification program.

By successfully passing the independently conducted certification tests, ADS joins a very select group of four companies whose StrongARM BSP is officially recognized by Microsoft (MSFT). Other companies certified include Intel (INTC) and Hitachi (HIT). The process of certification is a quality initiative that Microsoft provides. These BSPs are integrated into the integrated development environment (IDE) so they can be used for new projects.

"ADS is committed to providing our customers products that meet stringent quality guidelines. Passing the Microsoft certification is an extension and validation of our work toward those guidelines," said Robert Olsen, CEO of ADS.
