- Los Gatos four electric car charging stations, all supplied by Campbell-based Couloumb Technologies. The company received its funding from a federal Department of Energy grant to help municipalities provide the stations to the public. The chargers use the J-1772 Plug, a common standard: Chevy Volt, Nissan LEAF, Ford Focus, Toyota Plug-In Prius and other new EVs coming to the market rely on it.

- Dasher Technologies, a systems integrator, also snagged a spot on this year’s Solution Provider 500 list. It placed as number 181, moving up from number 272 in 2011.
- Campbell’s Society for Information Display, a top global organization dedicated to advancing electronic display products, announced its 2012 ‘Best of Show’ winners last Wednesday. They included Dimenco’s stereo 3D-display and Samsung’s 55-inch AMOLED TV.
