NATICK, Mass., 30 July 2010. The communications segment of the embedded computing hardware market is stabilizing in 2010 following the downturn of 2009, report analysts at market researcher VDC Research in Natick, Mass.

Nearly half the decision makers involved in embedded computing for communications say they expect their company’s spending on embedded computer boards to increase this year, while only 2 percent expect a decrease of any amount, VDC researchers say. Fifty-one percent say they expect the market for single-board computers in communications to be flat this year compared to 2009.

These VDC estimates are part of the firm's just-completed communications market module of the 2010 demand-side research for embedded hardware platforms. In this research VDC surveyed more than 125 communications infrastructure and networking infrastructure customers (OEMs, SIs, VARs, ISVs, etc.), in which they asked questions about their current product/vendor requirements and buying expectations for embedded hardware platforms.

VDC analysts screened the survey respondents tightly, and allowed only decision makers and influencers responsible for purchasing or recommending embedded computer boards or embedded integrated systems to participate. For more information contact VDC Research online at www.vdcresearch.com.
