Digital Core Design, IP Core provider from Poland has been awarded with two prizes during Economic Award Gala Night. Mayor of Bytom, where DCD operates since 1999, for the first time in history awarded with two prizes just one company. So the Digital Core Design has been awarded as Company of the Year and it’s DQ80251, world’s fastest 8051 IP Core as Product of the Year.

Economic Award, which is granted by Mayor, has been established to promote the best companies based in Bytom and products which are designed locally, but targeted globally. Prize winners were selected from three nominees in every category. – Though DCD’s product presence is global, we don’t forget what is important in local scale – says Jacek Hanke, CEO – we’re proud that our work is being appreciated not only in the USA, Taiwan or China, but also in our home town.
This year’s Economic Award competition was very hard, because of the high requirements to be satisfied by the nominees. The runners up must inter alia create and secure good working conditions for employees, act for the local community and their products must be valued by the customers.
That’s why Digital Core Design has been awarded not only in one category, but for the first time in history, got a second award for the Product of the Year. DQ80251, which is the world’s fastest 8051 IP Core is more than 50 times faster than the standard introduced by Intel company.  – Our IP Core, thanks to its unique features, is a perfect choice for all embedded applications demanding cost effective and best possible solutions – concludes Hanke.
