Research & Development Award sponsored by
 

R&D in this category can relate to research and development in a component, hardware system, software or process technology. The R&D may or may not yet have found its way into a commercial product. So companies are invited to demonstrate how they have implemented a piece of R&D to achieve a specific project goal. Hardware and software technology will be judged equally in this regard as will the creation of intellectual property (IP) which offers a specific design benefit.
