Read what our partners and past winners have said about the Elektra Awards!
Once again, Swindon Silicon Systems is delighted to sponsor the Design Tools and Development Software Award at Electronics Weekly’s Elektra Awards 2019 and look forward to seeing all the entries for this year’s event.
The Elektra Awards recognise successful companies and talented individuals right across our exciting industry and it is great to continue to be involved. As a company, we also recognise talent and, in seeking the best available, we offer a variety of undergraduate and graduate programs for the brightest people in disciplines such as electronics, physics and software. We also offer a very popular summer intern program which, for some, has led to a full-time career with Swindon.
As well as bringing together some of the best companies in each of the many categories, the annual Elektra Awards provides the perfect opportunity to recognise top talent and success in a format that gives everyone involved the chance to network with their peers and finish the year on a real high.
The Elektra Awards are highly prestigious, and keenly fought-over. Winners and nominees represent the pinnacle of excellence in our industry and as such, the recognition that the Elektras provide a much-needed spotlight, highlighting successful technological innovation. That is very important to Mouser, as our raison d’etre is to support design innovation.
Mouser supports the Awards because it gives us a chance to be associated with the best our industry has to offer, while at the same time enjoying a fun and relaxed evening with customers, colleagues and our competitors. We are pleased that the Elektras have maintained their leadership position and eagerly anticipate this year’s gala celebrations.
Spacechips benefited from winning New Company of the Year and Excellence in High-Reliability Design in 2017 through increased exposure and visibility around the world. This resulted in increased enquiries, sales and global market share. Being able to say that Spacechips won New Company of the Year is a huge endorsement and helped to open many closed (and new) doors around the world. Spacechips is a young UK company showcasing British engineering excellence and ingenuity around the world.
We are immensely pleased with our achievements at the Elektra Awards. Serving our customers to the highest levels of quality is our first priority and we always attempt to deliver an 'Out-of-this-World' client experience. It can be very difficult to justify the time and effort required to prepare an application, but our experience has proven that the investment is worthwhile and we recommend other Start-Ups consider this option to grow their business and explore new opportunities (www.spacechips.co.uk).
“We are extremely proud to have won the Elektra 2017 Educational Support Award,” said Mike England, President of EMEA at RS. “It is a major endorsement of the company’s ongoing efforts to support educational programmes and nurture the vast range of possibilities offered by engineering and electronics design in the minds of the engineers of tomorrow”.
RS plays a highly active role in promoting engineering to young people right across the age spectrum: from primary school throughout the academic years, as well as those just embarking on an engineering career. The electronics industry in the UK faces an annual shortage of skilled engineers, and RS has foreseen its own potential to influence engineering uptake to prevent an even greater skills gap in the future, especially in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subjects.
Pioneering a new technology is always challenging. Having it win a prestigious award is wonderful, and to win two is incredible. It’s a tremendous validation for all the hard work that the Engineering team at GSS has put into this solid-state technology that is now being used from the heights of space to the depths of the ocean. We were particularly pleased that our work in healthcare applications was recognised. The global nature of the Elektra Awards has really helped raise our international profile, with enquiries and orders coming in from all corners of the world.
At Micron, we feel proud to sponsor Elektra Awards. It's a great opportunity for us to highlight our commitment towards Memory Storage Solutions to grow and accelerate IoT in Europe
“It was an honour to be awarded the Analog Semiconductor Award for our SX126x sub-GHz radio transceivers at the Elektra’s last year. We appreciate the acknowledgement from the industry’s respected experts recognising the innovation in our products and LoRa Devices’ ability to gather and share data between devices via the Cloud in the wide number of applications globally.”
