D2 Opens Taiwan Design Center

Santa Barbara-based D2 Technologies, a developer of VOIP softphones, announced this week that it has opened a design center in Hsinchu City, Taiwan. The firm said that the center will be responsible for R&D projects. D2 is a provider of software for the voice-over-IP market, and is used in gateways and WiFi handsets by systems manufacturers. The company said that its new design center would work closely with the company's R&D staff in Santa Barbara. D2's software runs on RISC-based processors, and replaces more expensive DSP-based functions for voice over IP.
