Carlsbad, Calif. – October 30, 2007 – Pulse~LINK, Inc. announced today that it is the winner of 2007 AeA High Tech Award for Outstanding Emerging Growth. The Ultra Wideband (UWB) semiconductor company was honored for its leading innovation in developing high-performance solutions for whole-home networking of high definition consumer electronics devices.
The San Diego chapter of the AeA, one of the industry’s leading trade organizations, announced the top technology winners in the region at its annual luncheon attended by over 650 technology executives. Companies were chosen for innovative technology, market reach, corporate citizenship and achieving important benchmarks.
“The growth of San Diego companies driving the future of technology has exploded in recent years,” said Kevin Carroll, executive director, AeA San Diego Council. “Emerging Growth is one of the most exciting categories for our region and Pulse~LINK, with its revolutionizing technology, was the well deserved winner in this very competitive category.”
Pulse~LINK is a pioneer in commercialization of UWB communications and the first semiconductor company to deliver a solution capable of true room-to-room networking of interactive High Definition content from a hybrid wired/wireless chipset. Devices enabled with the Pulse~LINK CWave® UWB chipset allow HD content located anywhere in the home to be shared across the existing coax backbone with wireless connectivity in each room for Set-Top Boxes, HDTVs, DVRs, DVD players, Gaming Devices, Media Center PCs, and other multimedia equipment. CWave enables HD content to be streamed throughout the home with IPTV functionality and provides End-to-End Quality of Service, while still preserving content protection mechanisms. Commercial CWave® chipsets will begin shipping this year.
In accepting the award, Pulse~LINK President/COO, Bruce Watkins said, “This is a testament to the many long hours in the lab and the outstanding accomplishments of our entire team.” He added, “Imagine not having the rat’s nest of wires behind your home entertainment center and accessing the DVD player, DVR, or Set-Top Box in your living room from every TV in the house with no new wires- this is something our engineers can be proud of being the first to deliver to the digital home.”
“It is a great honor to be recognized by AeA as one of the top high tech companies in our region,” states John Santhoff, Pulse~LINK Founder and Chief Technology Officer. “San Diego is leading the nation in the emergence of UWB communications and we are thrilled to have the support of the AeA and our community.”
