Paris, France – February 10, 2015 -­‐ ReFLEX CES, a provider of Modified-­‐Off-­‐The-­‐Shelf (MOTS) solutions and turnkey embedded systems, has added the hardware businesses of its sister companies in the PLDA Group, PLDA and  Accelize.  Effective  from January 1st 2015,  FPGA-­‐based boards and the  SOM  (System-­‐on-­‐Module)  product lines have been transferred to the ReFLEX CES portfolio.
