Battery Design LLC and CD-adapco Expand Relationship to Keep Customers and Market Ahead of Curve


NEW YORK and LONDON, Feb. 22, – CD-adapco will assume all development responsibility for Battery Design Studio® from Battery Design LLC and this announcement builds on the existing collaboration which has seen worldwide sales of the software tool.

Robert Spotnitz, the creator of Battery Design Studio® commented, "I am delighted that CD-adapco will now develop the product. As the user base has grown so has the need to increase development resources. Long standing customers will only see a great deal of benefit from this expanded relationship."

Battery Design Studio® will continue to be retailed through CD-adapco's worldwide operation and the successful collaboration with Robert Spotnitz and his company Battery Design LLC will continue to provide leading edge battery simulation methods to clients.

Steve Hartridge, Director of Electric & Hybrid Vehicles at CD-adapco said, "Leveraging our global development team and their processes will provide a clear route for the long term stability of Battery Design Studio®. Moreover, allowing Robert Spotnitz to focus on technology and method development will ensure BDS customers stay ahead of the curve."

For an update on the recent advances in Battery Design Studio's technology and also more on the changes mentioned above please view this webcast hosted by Dr. Robert Spotnitz and Steve Hartridge. The recording features a live Battery Design Studio® demonstration and highlights new features in the code. (http://www.cd-adapco.com/downloads/webinar_recordings/fstreams/bds)
