Birmingham, UK, 13 November 2012. ByteSnap Design Ltd, a specialist in embedded systems design and development, was the only finalist to be highly commended by the judges at this year’s British Engineering Excellence Awards.

Shortlisted within the ‘Consultancy of the Year’ category for the second year in a row against tough competition, the commendation recognised ByteSnap Design’s expertise in embedded hardware, embedded software and embedded systems development when carrying out design work on electric vehicle charging posts for the London 2012 games. 

Dunstan Power, Director of ByteSnap Design, said: "Being shortlisted for this award was a great honour and we are proud that the judges recognised our design team’s work. This was not just about electronic design or embedded systems - we were up against competition from all types of engineering disciplines and this acknowledgement highlights our growth and success over the past twelve months."

The BEEAs prizes, and ByteSnap’s commendation, were awarded at a Champagne luncheon on Thursday 25th October in London. 

Chairman of the judges, Eric Wilkinson, said: "As a BEEAs judge, I see resourceful, ambitious, entrepreneurial and outstanding engineers and scientists building successful companies, whatever the prevailing business conditions. Whilst the economic soothsayers openly worry about the UK’s role in the global market, BEEAs entrants have found that, by working hard and being the best at what they do, people will come to UK companies for their products and services."

One of only a few companies providing both hardware and software design services, ByteSnap Designs offers in-depth experience and understanding of electronic and software engineering that covers the whole embedded system stack, from low-level hardware to applications.
