Tabula Wins Red Herring Top 100 North America Technology Award

Hollywood, California (June 20, 2011)- Tabula, Inc., a privately held fabless semiconductor company and developer of the ABAX family of 3D Programmable Logic Devices (3PLDs), today announced that it was selected as one of the top 100 ventures in North America at the Red Herring Top 100 awards ceremony in Hollywood last week. For 15 years, the Red Herring North America Top 100 has recognized the year's most promising private technology companies from the North American Business region.

The Red Herring editorial team selects the most innovative companies from a pool of thousands, a process which culminates in a three-day convention of 200 C-level technology entrepreneurs, corporate strategists and venture financiers from across the continent. Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy, and market penetration.

Red Herring’s Top 100 North America list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype,, YouTube, and eBay would change the way we live and work.

“Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the Top 100 Winners. We believe Tabula embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Tabula should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.”

“We are extremely proud to be selected as a 2011 Red Herring Top 100 private technology company and excited to be recognized for our innovation in the semiconductor industry,” says Dennis Segers, CEO of Tabula, Inc. “Our breakthrough Spacetime 3D technology has brought a step function advancement in programmable logic capabilities and we aim to transform the PLD industry with our 3D programmable devices. This award further validates the enormous impact our technological innovation is having in the marketplace.”
