Digital Core Design, an IP Core provider and System-on-Chip design house, has been awarded as National Champion in 2014/2015 European Business Awards. In the same time DCD has been chosen as a Technology Icon to promote hi-tech in Silesia and Poland. Both distinctions – in regional and global scale are a crowning achievement for DCD celebrating in 2014 its 15th Anniversary.

European Business Awards is an independent programme supported by global audit company RSM International. EBA is designed to recognize and promote excellence, best practice and innovation in the European business. This year’s edition engaged with over 24,000 business from 33 European countries but only 709 companies from across Europe have been named as National Champions; going through to the second phase of the competition.
– We’re very proud to be selected to represent both Poland and EDA industry as a National Champion –said Jacek Hanke, DCD’s CEO – And now we are looking forward to the next round of the judging process where we can explain in more depth how we are achieving business success.
Jean Stephens, CEO of RSM International, said: – Every year this competition gets tougher and more competitive as more companies, of varied sizes and across all sectors, chose to compete in this prestigious competition. It will be exciting to watch as we move through to the next round.
The second achievement comes from Silesian Voivodeship, where the Marshal’s Office has chosen Digital Core Design as a Technology Icon. The information campaign with a budget of more than 1 million PLN will promote hi-tech companies in press, media, ATL and BTL – to convict residents that e.g. company which designed World’s fastest 8051 CPU is located round the corner. – We act global, but don’t forget what’s important locally – points Jacek Hanke from DCD – from 15 years perspective, our location, proves that power of intellectual property knows no borders.
