COMPTON, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 30, 2009 Belkin International, Inc., today announced that it has won the prestigious IDEA Award, by cosponsors Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA), BusinessWeek, Target Corporation, and Autodesk Inc., a world leader in design innovation technologies.
