Kardinal Microsystems has developed “the smallest, fastest, smartest, most efficient IoT data platform solution available in the industry at the device level”.

Early-stage companies gain access to state-of-the-art design tools

Kent McLeroth, President and CEO of Zuken USA, said: “We are committed to working with early and mid-stage companies, such as Kardinal Microsystems. Our Startup Partner Program enabled us to work with Pascal and Kardinal Microsystems as a founding partner to develop a program that would provide them access to Zuken’s CR-8000 development platform while still meeting their startup needs. Helping early stage companies achieve big things is a win-win for everyone.”

Kardinal Microsystems worked closely with Zuken USA on the structure of and terms of the Startup Partner Program, offering insight into the incubation and acceleration phases of early product prototype development.

As part of the program Zuken USA offers CR-8000, the industry’s only 3D, product-centric design solution that offers architecture design, concurrent 3D multi-board support, ECAD/MCAD co-design and chip/package/board co-design. This is followed by training and deployment assistance.
