How long ago did you found your company?
We started 13 years ago.
What products did you start out focusing on?
We started off making video adapters and later on started making serial adapters. We’ve been focused since the early days on making connectivity products, and later on we began making stand-alone products or peripherals that didn’t rely on just a single product but on things like a USB bus.
