Gopa Periyadan with AG Karunakaran, Prakash Bare, and Ravi Thumarakudy co-founded GDA Technologies Inc. in 1996. They all shared a common dream of contributing something positive to their chosen industry--electronic hardware design and development. They also shared a common vision on how to make this dream into a reality. Translating that vision, GDA was founded with a dedicated mission to become the leading Electronic Design Services (EDS) partner for Embedded, Networking, and Consumer product companies. GDA has 6 design centers employing a diverse work force from various parts of the world. Ranked as one of Silicon Valley’s fastest growing companies, GDA registered growth rates over 100% for its first four consecutive years. Since it started with a head count of just 5 in 1996, by end of 2005, it will have close to 300 employees worldwide.
