[Company strength]
All staff members have more than 20 years of experience in product development at a control equipment manufacturer. They are the reason why our development satisfies the demands for high-level quality requirements, accuracy specifications, and performance. We also assist clients with creating products starting from the requirements stage. As examples of specific industrial networks, we have developed standards and safety protocol stacks for EtherCAT, EtherNet/IP, and DeviceNet. We make use of our original stacks for more efficient development.

[Business description]
Our primary business is development services specializing in industrial networks, functional safety, and control technology that we offer to product development divisions at manufacturers of industrial controllers, robots, and measurement and control equipment, and at IoT-related manufacturers. We have also started applying our technologies to develop our own IoT and security products.

[Industry]
Software development

[Strength of products/technologies]
(1) Functional safety: We have more than 10 years of experience with TÜV certification process development. We support development throughout all phases of the certification process.
(2) No other company offers license-free development services instead of a licensing business and provides, as a deliverable, the source code down to the protocol stack.
(3) No other company offers development services that bring together industrial networks, controllers, and functional safety.


[Representative's message]
Since our establishment, we have been developing software, primarily for industrial networks. Previously, there was a mishmash of networks from each manufacturer, but after a long transition period to a common standard, manufacturers are consolidating around Ethernet-based networks. We will focus our technology on Ethernet-based industrial networks and work on safety and security convergence. We have not ruled out overseas expansion and will consider such expansion if the opportunity presents itself. Our ambition is to contribute to society in the safety and security fields through our industrial network technology.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
(1) We try to create more opportunities to reach new customers by collaborating with large technology trading companies and utilizing their sales channels.
(2) We are broadening the opportunities to actively promote our technology and products at trade shows, seminars, and other events with Renesas and other alliance partners.
(3) We are moving ahead with extending our technology to partner companies with the resources to carry out mid-sized and large projects.


[Market share/Ranking]
There are almost no other independent enterprises providing development services for industrial network functional safety.
