Atmel Names EBV Elektronik "European Distributor of the Year 2011"
"Atmel Corporation is a worldwide leader in the design and manufacture of microcontrollers, capacitive touch solutions, advanced logic, mixed-signal, nonvolatile memory and radio frequency (RF) components. To receive this award is a great confirmation of EBV's outstanding performance within Atmel's European distribution network. At the same time it is quite a unique recognition because it is only presented to a distributor who performs exceptionally well," said Rudy Van Parijs, Vice President of Technical Development at EBV Elektronik. "It is a great success for the whole EBV team. Such results are only possible if the relationship between a distributor and a supplier works very well at all levels. Therefore, I would also like to express my thanks and appreciation to the whole Atmel team. Without their dedication and support we would not have achieved this award!"
