MILPITAS, California, October 17, 1997 - TYAN® Computer Corp., a leading developer of system boards, has been named the 19th fastest growing company in the country by Inc. magazine, whose annual ranking of the Inc. 500, will be released in the October issue, expected out Oct. 21.
TYAN, founded in 1989 by long-time Intel® and IBM executive Dr. Symon Chang, designs, manufactures, and markets advanced Intel-based system board technology. Its products are sold to OEMs, system integrators, VARs, resellers and end-users.
"We are proud that our revenues have grown over 1,000 percent in the past three years in an area of the computer industry (system boards) that maybe isn't as exciting as some areas, but is critical to the integrity of personal computers", noted Chang.
TYAN was recently featured on NBC-TV and in numerous computer trade publications as an example of a "quality motherboard manufacturer" that uses high-end components in its system boards. This has become increasingly important with the proliferation of high speed processors, which produce intense heat. Low quality system boards could lead to PC crashes.
This year marks the 16th for the prestigious Inc. 500 ranking of the fasting growing private companies. California tops the Inc. 500 list with 94 companies. Texas is second with 39 firms.
TYAN has a complete family of Pentium, Pentium II and Pentium Pro motherboards based on Intel's latest chipsets, including the 440LX, 430TX, 430HX, and 440FX. These products cover a wide range of applications, including dual processing, high-end workstation and server configurations.
