CMTA Champion Parallax keeps trailblazing

Posted by Gino DiCaro, VP, Communications on Aug. 12, 2014

One of CMTA's recently recognized Champions of Manufacturing, Parallax, out of Rocklin, California did something almost unheard of this week in the industry.  They opened up their source code design for their leading edge micro-controller so the rest of the world could benefit from their innovation. 

Parallax made a splash and released their design at the world renowned DEFCON conference in Las Vegas.

“There’s a trend toward open source," Parallax CEO Ken Gracey told a Sacramento Bee reporter in an interview just before the convention started. “You’ve seen it in software. It’s also true in hardware. People right now want to buy things they can see into, and where they feel there’s no hidden intellectual property."
 

You can read more here in the Sacramento Bee. CMTA is proud to have recognized Parallax in June for its innovation and commitment to its California workers. Congratulations, Parallax. Again!
