Monday January 18th, 2010

Foster City, CA – January 18, 2010 – IAR Systems Software, Inc., a leading provider of software tools for embedded systems has been selected by Quake Global, a leading manufacturer of M2M communicators for multiple satellite and terrestrial networks, as the preferred software development environment for the latest QUAKE™ Satellite Data Modems, Q-Pro and Q4000. These modems are the industry’s first and only available M2M applications which can access multiple satellite and terrestrial networks using a single communications protocol. The modems are used to track, monitor and control industrial assets such as heavy machinery, aviation, maritime, trucking industries, as well as in utility, gas & oil and rail applications.

“IAR Systems is excited to work with Quake Global by providing them and their customers with the IAR Embededed Workbench™ development tools,” said Nadim Shehayed, IAR Systems US General Manager. “Our software tool technology combined with outstanding technical support was a key factor for Quake Global’s decision. As our tools are used in Quake Global’s next generation products, we look forward to supporting them in the wireless communications market,” he added.

“Quake has chosen IAR’s development environment for use in internal product as well as customer end application development. Quake’s embedded software is a very important piece of our satellite transceiver product lines and choosing a very stable, debug friendly, and easy to use IDE is extremely important,” said Sergio Ramos, Quake Global’s CTO. “IAR’s IDE has exactly the blend of features that our engineers were looking for. Based on our team’s internal experience, we are also recommending this environment as the tool of choice for our end users application development needs,” he added.
