The objective of ATD Electronique is to represent and distribute innovating products in the field of electronic components. ATD Electronique signs a contract of distribution with SONY (semiconductor division) and introduces the first fast static RAMs (Random Access Memories) on the French market.





1991 - ATD Electronique signs a contract of distribution and representation with ZORAN




Reinforcement of the bonds of partnership with SONY by the promotion of matrix and linear image CCD sensors.





Marketing on the SOUTHERN market Europe of the first JPEG processors of ZORAN.





Iso9001 certification (2000 version).





To widen its panel of solutions ATD Electronique signs a contract of distribution with EMPIA for the promotion and the marketing of USB SOCs (System on Chip).





Signing of a representation and distribution’s contract with Fairchild Imaging, specialized in the manufacturing of CCD and sCMOS image sensors dedicated to the military, scientific and Medical markets.





ATD Electronique goes European and opens in Spain its first sales office out of France.





ITAR Certification (International Traffic in Arms Regulations) with the U.S. State Department





To increase its European coverage and get closer to its customers, ATD Electronique opens simultaneously sales offices in Germany and Italy. ATD Electronique signs a contract representation with GEO and introduces on the SOUTHERN market Europe the first DSP.
