The much-anticipated annual DesignVision Awards were announced before the keynote at DesignCon 2013 today in Santa Clara, CA, and included a mix of winners ranging from feisty startups such as Upverter to industry luminaries such as Mentor Graphics, TE Connectivity and Teledyne LeCroy.
As usual, the judges evaluated products hundreds of exhibitors to choose the winners, who were recognized at today’s ceremony.
“The DesignVision Awards celebrate the achievements of the most innovative electronics companies and the unique tools that support customer needs to improve and simplify the design process,” said Wendy Yamaguma, Senior Events Director, UBM Tech Electronics.
Winners were selected based on three criteria: how well the product met the market’s vision and offered unique insight into customer needs; the originality of the solution and if it offered a new approach to meeting market needs; and the quality of the implementation and how well it fits the market requirements.
“We had quite a challenging time choosing these winners among all of the innovative products we judged,” said Patrick Mannion, DesignCon Content Director and Brand Director EDN, Test & Measurement World & Planet Analog. “Ultimately, our 2013 winners represent the best of the best in each of their respective industries.”
