Aquarius Provides Pan-European Support for Sequence Design

2/28/2003 - Sequence Design, has signed a sales management agreement for Aquarius Technologies to represent the company in Europe, supplementing the company's already strong European network of field applications engineers, R&D, and technical marketing. Headed by 25-year industry veteran, John Siemens, Aquarius provides pan-European sales and marketing support for a select group of pre-IPO, U.S.-based electronics companies from its offices in Brussels and Grenoble.

As a result of this agreement, Sequence plans to build on its European success with major customers such as Amphion, ARM, Infineon and Nokia. According to Siemens, the time is right to further promote Sequence's presence in Europe. He said leading semiconductor companies are picking up the pace of new-product design, particularly in the wireless and portable space, a natural opening for Sequence.

"Sequence has extremely strong, fundamental technology offerings in power, signal-integrity, and extraction - all of which are critical for the portable and wireless markets," Siemens said. "At the same time, Sequence's nanometer design tools are an absolute necessity for anyone dealing with customers at the cutting edge of process technology."

Siemens founded Aquarius Technologies 12 years ago. Aquarius has a sales office in Grenoble, and a sales and customer service center in Brussels. His lengthy electronics industry experience stretches back to Fairchild Semiconductor.

"Being familiar with John's record of success over the years, this was an easy decision to make," said Al Lipinski, Sequence senior vice president of worldwide field operations. "We have a terrific product portfolio that lines up nicely with trends in this market, and now we have the people in place to describe and deliver all that Sequence has to offer, directly to the European design community."

Sequence, with John Siemens in attendance, will be an exhibitor at this year's DATE in Munich, March 3-7. More information about Aquarius Technologies is available online:
