Ringing in the New Year

It’s time to say farewell to 2013, and welcome in a promising new year.  The last few weeks have been filled with family, friends, and thoughts of the future.  I like to take this opportunity to reflect on the time that has passed, and think about all the great things still to come.

I don’t believe in New Year’s resolutions.  Year after year we try to make the same changes in our lives starting January 1st, and year after year by the time February rolls around they are long forgotten.  I’d do the same thing each time and expect different results…the definition of insanity!  It’s so much more fun to focus on what can be added to my life in the coming year.  More time with family, take a vacation to a new destination, and personally, I can spend hours getting lost in a new tool or app that promises to add functionality to my life, or just save time.

Just like at home, at Critical Link we have been busy wrapping up the current year and planning for what’s to come in 2014.  We hit some key milestones this year, and investments in R&D, production, sales and marketing have positioned us for what is sure to be an exciting time.  Our first big tradeshow of the year — Photonics West in San Francisco — will launch our new camera, an embedded vision system designed for sensor evaluation.  We are excited about the technology this puts in our customer’s hands, coupling high performance imaging sensors from partners like Fairchild Imaging/BAE Systems with the technology in Critical Link’s Altera SOC system on module.  More on this as the year rolls out.

To all of you and yours, we wish you a very Happy New Year!
