PARC Technology, a high-end embedded product design company, was founded by Aijaz Ahmed, a hard-core technologist with hands-on design experience in Hardware and System Software. While working as Chief engineer for a giant electronics enterprise in Japan, one of his DEO sparked his dream of setting up his own company. Despite earning an attractive pay packet during his tenure in U.S. and Japan, Aijaz realized that his passion lay in leveraging his deep design expertise and start a product design company back in India. Thus came PARC into being in Bangalore in 1997 as an STPI unit. As the name indicates, PARC began its journey by architecting PCs, handheld laptops, palmtops and notebooks. PARC instantly got the opportunity to be the exclusive design house for a Japanese electronics giant by leveraging Aijaz's past experience. Sensing several opportunities in India, PARC became an independent vendor to other clients in 2000 and started activities in India. Today, after 17 years of existence PARC has developed deep domain expertise in five verticals namely

-Consumer Electronics (setup boxes, hybrid boxes, digital video recorder with their own middleware and software stack)
-Security & surveillance (static, mobile multi-camera with innovative features like image stabilization, object detection, image stitching)
-Industrial design (Real time high-end Data acquisition Products, ASIC validation & referential designs, handhelds, power managed devices)
-Medical products (Medical electronics devices with special features) and
-Green energy solution (power savers with wired& wireless connectivity)

A Self driven 17 Years old enterprise
