Flash Technology Distributes Arium Embedded Tools in Southeast Asia

5/11/2004 - American Arium, an industry leader in hardware-assisted software development tools, strengthened its distribution channel support in Southeast Asia with the formal addition of Flash Technology Pte. Ltd., the well known embedded tools provider, to its list of distributors in the region. Flash Technology's technical expertise, understanding of China's fast growing embedded development markets, and past affiliation with Arium in Singapore made it the overall best choice for Arium's planned entrance into the Chinese embedded marketplace.

"Flash Technology was looking to move into China about the same time we were," said Larry Traylor, Arium's CEO, after a recent visit to Flash Technology in its newly established Shanghai office. "We felt their strategy for entrance into this country with its new and thriving markets went hand-in-hand with our own. We know from past experience that they are well positioned to break into the embedded space there."

Established in 1994, Flash Technology is an embedded tools product distributor and service provider in Southeast Asia. Headquartered in Singapore, the company also has offices in Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Beijing. Flash Technology sells emulators, analyzers, programmers, compilers, real-time operation systems, and testers to networking equipment, smartcard, handset, and other embedded processor applications solution providers.

"We were looking for a development tools company with strong technical background, reliable products, and a commitment to China as the partner to break into this market," said GH Quek, co-founder of Flash Technology. "With Arium's new product range for ARM embedded applications, its especially strong support for Linux kernel and applications debug, and with exceptional technical knowledge and support, this partnership will benefit both companies and also our mutual customers in China."

American Arium designs and manufactures emulators, reference boards, and related development tools for the ARM, Intel, and AMD development markets. It is one of the few companies to provide support for Linux-based targets and Intel® XScaleTM and IA processors, as well as ARM7TM, ARM9TM, and TI OMAPTM processors. Arium's feature-rich tool sets, including Arium's flagship SourcePointTM debugger, GNU-X tools, and an integrated development environment, give the software or firmware developer a complete debug solution. Arium tools offer superb run control, integrated ETM trace, real-time performance analysis, ARM® RealMonitorTM support, and embedded Linux support.
