Through the agreement ADLINK becomes an important technology partner of Performance Technologies.

ADLINK, with presence in the United States and Asia, will use Performance Technologies' CPC440X Ethernet switching family and CPC388 and CPC396 communications interfaces to assemble an open architecture building block platform, upon which equipment manufacturers and systems integrators can build packet-based data communications and telephony applications.

"Performance Technologies' CompactPCI and PICMG 2.16 products are the most capable and highest performing of their kind," said Jim Liu, CEO of ADLINK. "By integrating these products, we are giving developers of next-generation, packet-based systems a baseline platform to shorten the integration process while increasing overall system reliability and performance."

Combined with Performance Technologies' NexusWare embedded Linux-based operating environment, the ADLINK Technology platform provides a high-density, flexible and powerful PICMG 2.16 packet-switched backplane platform for a wide range of high availability and next-generation applications.
