Datalight Earns Windows Embedded Partner Excellence Award

LAS VEGAS, May 2 -- Datalight Inc. today announced that it received the 2007 Americas Windows Embedded Excellence Award for Independent Software Vendor. Datalight received this award yesterday, as part of the Microsoft Mobile & Embedded Developers Conference.

The Windows Embedded Partner Excellence Awards, previously called the Windows Embedded Partner of the Year Awards, recognizes visionary organizations around the world which use technology in an innovative and creative manner.

Microsoft selected Datalight for its expertise in software to manage flash memory, a valuable contribution to the Windows Embedded platform as the use of flash memory storage grows. Datalight products, such as the FlashFX Pro® flash memory manager, are a perfect fit for Windows Embedded, providing embedded device designers greater flexibility and faster time-to-market for their designs.

"Datalight has been an important part of our Windows Embedded ecosystem for many years and offers our customers improved performance, greater flexibility and stellar customer support," said Ilya Bukshteyn, director of Windows Embedded Marketing at Microsoft Corp. "We look forward to continuing our relationship with them."

FlashFX Pro offers unparalleled design flexibility with pre-written drivers for over 200 state-of-the-art NAND and NOR flash parts, allowing Windows Embedded developers to efficiently handle second sourcing issues and take full advantage of what is available in the NAND marketplace for their devices.

"Over a decade of experience with flash memory has enabled us to offer Windows Embedded customers the gold standard in flash management software. All Datalight products were designed from the ground up for embedded devices, so our support for Windows Embedded is a natural platform extension for us," stated Rob Hart, Datalight partner program manager. "We are pleased to be working with Microsoft and happy to receive this award."
