BSQUARE Authorized to Provide Adobe Device Certification

BELLEVUE, WA--(Marketwire - Jul 20, 2011) - BSQUARE Corporation (NASDAQ: BSQR), a leading enabler of smart, connected devices, today announced that it reached agreement with Adobe® to be a Certification Partner. This expands the Adobe licensing, testing and engineering support services that BSQUARE, an Adobe Scaling Partner since 2007, provides for its customers. Previously, BSQUARE and its customers have submitted devices to Adobe for Certification. As a Certification Partner, BSQUARE will provide Adobe Certification directly. BSQUARE already supports OEMs shipping devices with Adobe products with porting, testing, optimization and cross-platform and user interface (UI) development services.

"Designation as an Adobe Certification Partner expands our existing Adobe Flash practice and enables BSQUARE to help our OEM clients through the Adobe Certification process," said Mark Whiteside, vice president of engineering services for BSQUARE. "By supporting OEMs through this required, critical, and final component of integrating Adobe runtimes into their devices, BSQUARE now provides truly end-to-end Adobe product development support. Adobe Certification has very stringent requirements and we are honored that Adobe trusts BSQUARE to provide this service."

This marks a significant change in the process for Adobe product certifications, which, until now, have been managed exclusively through Adobe. Adobe Device Certification is required of any OEM that wants to add an Adobe product such as Adobe Flash® Player, Adobe AIR®, or Adobe Reader Mobile® to devices prior to shipment. BSQUARE has already assisted hundreds of customers through the Adobe testing, optimization and certification process. By managing the certification process in-house for its customers, BSQUARE will be able to save OEMs both time and money by reducing the time-to-market for Adobe products.

"The number of devices and device types utilizing Adobe products has increased exponentially -- from desktops, smartphones, tablets, to game consoles and televisions," said Anthony Haag, director, Business Development at Adobe. "By enabling BSQUARE to handle the certification process we are providing our OEM and enterprise customers broad access for application development and testing."

BSQUARE also provides porting, licensing, development support and testing for Adobe Flash Player and Adobe AIR products and is a distributor of the Adobe Reader Mobile SDK. For more information about Adobe Certification and Adobe product support and licensing services available from BSQUARE visit:
