FOUNTAIN HILLS, AZ — OpenSystems Media (OSM), LLC, the largest publisher of print and digital content for the embedded technology space, today announced that it has acquired the assets of Online Destiny, a leading provider of blogs and websites for the embedded, FPGA, and EDA market segments. Under the terms of the acquisition, OpenSystems Media will obtain rights to the e-mail lists, RSS feeds, websites, and other assets of Online Destiny’s EmbeddedStar.com, FPGABlog.com, EDABlog.com, and EDAGeek.com properties.

Incorporating Online Destiny’s resources into the OpenSystems Media portfolio furthers the company’s readership and expands the company’s lead generation capabilities, enabling clients to extend their influence on the embedded marketplace.

“OpenSystems Media continues to invest in the embedded marketplace,” states Patrick Hopper, Publisher at OpenSystems Media. “We are the clear leader in print and online magazines and lead generation. In the past 12 months we have expanded our sales force, integrated new websites, and added more than 75,000 names to our database to better serve the needs of our clients and drive our growth. We hope to be the ‘one-stop shop’ for vendors targeting embedded systems.”

In addition to attaining the lists of four online publications, OpenSystems Media also procured the rights to Online Destiny’s website and RSS feed resources, which rank highly amongst online embedded content sources. Coupled with the only apps available to embedded engineers (Embedded Computing Design and DSP-FPGA.com), the addition of these resources solidifies OpenSystems Media’s position in digital publishing.

“We have had our eye on the EmbeddedStar and EDAGeek audience and superior search rankings for nearly a decade,” says Konrad Witte, Senior Web Developer, OpenSystems Media. “We have a great opportunity now to reach this incredible new following of engineers and other industry professionals.”
