Eurotech Wins 2.2M USD Contract to Supply Embedded Computers for Vehicle Diagnostics Applications

Eurotech Embedded Computers Extend Life-cycle of Truck Diagnostic and Test Equipment

COLUMBIA, Md., May 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Eurotech, a leading supplier of embedded technologies, today announces a 2.2 Million USD contract with a leading global test and tooling company to provide embedded computers over a three-year period. The contract will allow this customer to extend the lifecycle of their product, a popular diagnostic scanning tool in the heavy-duty transportation industry.

Operating in the transportation environment means these products need to withstand extreme temperatures, variable humidity and intense vibration, which is one reason the development team chose to use a rugged, high performance platform from Eurotech. The diagnostic product uses the Eurotech embedded computer to enable fast graphics display on the easy-to-use touchscreen panel, with real-time color graphing for greater clarity of test results and trouble-shooting guidance. In addition, for added reliability, Eurotech designed a comprehensive power supply and battery charging circuit for a virtually maintenance free device.

"This customer builds sophisticated devices, running a detailed diagnostic application, that flawlessly meets demanding requirements and operates reliably under extreme conditions, which is why they selected the Eurotech platform to extend their product lifecycle," explained Greg Nicoloso, Chief Executive Officer for Eurotech in North America.
