SECO USA BatterySmart and Fingertip Named As Finalists in EDNs Prestigious Innovation Awards


Monday, December 10, 2001, Rockville, MD- SECO USA, Inc. today announced that the editors of Electronic Design News (EDN) Magazine, a preferred technical publication for electronics professionals, have selected SECO USA’s Fingertip platform as one of the Hot Products of 2001. The December 6 issue of EDN Magazine includes a cover story on the Hot 100, featuring the Fingertip platform in the Computers, Boards, and Buses category.

“Thousands of new electronic products come along every year,” said Bill Schweber, executive editor of EDN. “All, no doubt, are useful, and many are innovative, yet only a relative few generate real excitement. At EDN, we’ve noted that our readers respond in a really big way to about a hundred new products each year. Thus was born our year-end feature, the EDN Hot 100 Products.”

“The naming of Fingertip to the EDN Hot 100 is a testimony to the efforts of our engineering team to create a truly low-power, ultra-small handheld device platform,” said Andrew Girson, SECO USA’s CEO. “We appreciate the recognition from the editors at EDN and the feedback from industry. The continued support of our customers has made Fingertip the successful platform that it is today.”
