Who was the DSP Program
The DSP Program was designed for companies that wish to develop
products employing FOUNDATION fieldbus technology. It doesn't matter if you are a
small company looking for help with a few key components or a multi-billion
dollar corporation seeking a partner to develop an entire FOUNDATION ready
device, the DSP Program can help make this process easier.
How does this program benefit
The DSP Program can directly impact your bottom-line and help create
a strong ROI by reducing staffed man-hours and maximizing the efficiency of the
product development effort.
What is the single most
important aspect of the program?
Key to the DSP Program is providing qualified leads to our member
companies interested in producing FOUNDATION ready devices. Not only is it
valuable to have qualified development assistance when entering the fieldbus
market, but as a open technology, it is important to have options. That is why
we offer a complete list of development resources.
What does the DSP Program
mean to foundation members?
The DSP Program provides FieldComm Group members with access to
an elite group of development services providers that can assist on all types
of fieldbus development work -including both large and small projects.
Ultimately, this means faster time-to-market for your fieldbus solutions.
