Yokohama Artnics Co., Ltd.

We have good record of performance in hardware design related to image and communications processing.

We design and develop electric and electronic equipment, including printed circuit board (PCB) design and large-scale integrated circuit (LSI) design. We are developing our business with a focus on consignment development for major manufacturers that deal with information and communications equipment development. We are also working hard to develop in-house products in the field of image processing. We have a track record of developing products that use state-of-the-art technology in hardware design related to image processing and communications processing. This includes designing a communications interface exceeding 6 Gbps, and timing design exceeding an inner logic of 300 MHz. We have established an in-house system for the consignment development of rewritable hardware (FPGA). It can handle all of steps necessary, namely logic design, implementation, and logic verification.

[Company strength]
We have been involved in the development of many products using state-of-the-art technology in hardware design related to image processing and communications processing. This includes designing a communication interface exceeding 6 Gbps, and timing design exceeding an inner logic of 300 MHz. We have established an in-house system for the consignment development of FPGA (rewritable hardware). It can handle all of three steps necessary for development, namely logic design, implementation, and logic verification. We also conduct consignment development for each individual process. One of our strengths is that we can flexibly provide technology according to the customer’s requirements.

[Business description]
We deal with hardware design in all areas from PCB design to LSI circuit design. At present we are mainly developing our business with a focus on consignment development for major companies that deal with information and communications equipment development. Recently we have been actively investing in in-house development mainly in the image processing field. This is done by making full use of the know-how that we have accumulated in consignment development, etc. We are also working hard to cultivate new customers by actively introducing our original technology though participation in exhibitions, etc.

[Industry]
Electric and electronic equipment design and development

[Strength of products/technologies]
A feature of our FPGA image processing system is that the processing speed is higher than the speed of the software processing. Stable, instant calculations are possible even for images input at the maximum Camera Link rate (850 MB/s). High development costs used to be a barrier preventing the introduction of FPGA image processing systems. We are advancing development to change image processing algorithms to an IP core, so as to be flexibly incorporated into our FPGA image processing system. This is how we have enabled our customers to introduce image processing systems at lower cost.

[Representative's message]
We have been regularly participating in exhibitions since 2012 and cultivating new clients. This has resulted in many customers considering the introduction of our FPGA image processing system. We will work hard to improve the operability of our system and to reduce costs in order to take hold of these customers’ needs. The need for image processing appearance inspections will also grow in East Asia and ASEAN countries, where wages are rapidly rising because of the recent economic growth. We will further advance our development in order to flexibly cope with such a situation.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
We have assigned staff in charge of new transactions who will be the point of contact for inquiries. Our engineers will visit the customer if necessary to explain detailed technical matters and answer questions even before the start of transactions. We deal with the work by assigning appropriate company staff and human resources according to the scale of the business when transactions begin. Our Chinese staff will support customers in Taiwan and China. Our responsible staff members are actively participating in English education outside the company in order to make a system to respond to inquiries in English.
