By Tish Drake | March 12, 2010

Presagis, based in Montreal, will form a business unit focused solely on embedded graphics systems, the company announced Tuesday.

The new division, which will integrate Presagis's 2009 acquisition of Seaweed Systems, will build Presagis's experience in developing systems for the aerospace and automotive industries to deliver standards-based COTS graphics drivers and human-machine-interface (HMI) software for the embedded market, according to the company.

“In response to the demands for complex, integrated digital displays and powerful graphics drivers, we are structuring our organization in a way that will better serve the needs of the industry,” said Robert Kopersiewich, vice president and general manager of Embedded Graphics at Presagis. “We are listening to our customers and will provide them with the benefits of seamlessly developed products, a single point for sales and support, as well as HMI and graphic driver expertise within one innovative engineering team.”

Presagis said it will also continue to develop strategic relationships with other key embedded COTS software and hardware organizations, including Wind River, Green Hills Software, Curtiss Wright and GE Intelligent Platforms. “The new Presagis business unit sets a clear path for developers creating complex digital displays,” said Rob Hoffman, Vice President and General Manager, Aerospace and Defense, Wind River. “As a long-standing Presagis and Seaweed partner, our customers will also reap the benefits of these tightly integrated solutions with the full confidence that our relationships will help them to lower project costs and program risks.”
