[Company strength]
Our company proposes optimal methods that meet customer needs, and we integrate all processes from design and verification to board development and evaluation. We can provide efficient, comprehensive verification services from a third-party point of view by making full use of our third-party verification know-how and cutting-edge verification tools based on business alliances.  We also conduct the most advanced R&D projects with industry-university-government collaboration. We will do our best to exhibit synergistic effects in joint patent applications and IP development that contributes to future commercialization. We are also making aggressive efforts in fields that will continue to grow in the future and in developing cutting-edge technologies.

[Business description]
Our aim is to be a company that contributes to the development of our customers’ businesses and continues to grow with our customers. We do this by providing superb technologies as a third-party verification service provider.  We plan verification strategies from the design and development stage after customer interviews. We build up a verification environment, and conduct verification to provide high-quality verification services and contribute to reducing product development costs.  We have been tackling R&D based on signal processing and image processing technologies since 2008 through the Strategic Core Technology Advancement Program. We are promoting development to support recovery from the Great East Japan Earthquake as well as cutting-edge technologies. This is being done in industry-university-government collaboration involving universities and research institutes in the Tohoku Area. We strive to create new businesses for product development and sales companies.

Integrated circuit manufacturing

[Strength of products/technologies]
Our company deals with third-party verification. However, we are also aggressive about the most advanced R&D and technical development with industry-university-government collaboration, as well as support for recovery from the 2011 earthquake disaster. We are involved with rare-earth-free motor control mainly for electric vehicles and EV DC current sensors. We deal with image processing by biometrics authentication (non-contact palm print authentication) systems and AD converters necessary for the sensor systems of autonomous robots. We also develop monitor and alarm sensors to detect carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide for indoor environment management systems. We will continue to improve the quality and functionality of products born from R&D results to create technologies and products with secure quality that meet customer needs.

[Representative's message]
We are a venture company that was established in 2007. LSI verification technologies from a third-party point of view are our core competence, and we have been extending verification services to major semiconductor manufacturers. We concluded alliance partner agreements with overseas manufacturers at the beginning of our history, and started activities to disseminate cutting-edge verification technologies throughout Japan. The recent decline of the semiconductor industry is reducing orders from semiconductor manufacturers. However, consignment work from system manufacturers is increasing. All of us will devote ourselves to providing services to customers, including overseas customers, so that the verification technologies we have cultivated so far can be reflected in system development. 

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
Our company has dedicated sales staff for transactions with major companies, and the general affairs department handles contract processing and paperwork. We are ready to smoothly promote business. Our company will assign specialized staff who have undergone training to employee education and conduct periodic compliance and security education for all employees to strengthen our compliance and security system. The president will directly support new customers and strategically important customers to quickly build up systems. Our company is also proactively promoting overseas expansion.

[Market share/Ranking]
(1) We were the first to start commercializing rare-earth-free motor control IPs in the automotive industry. 
(2) Our HAND PASSPORT (trademark registered in 2013) palm print authentication system is a non-contact biometrics authentication system. We started shipping samples in September 2014.
(3) The Airmil monitoring sensor is a safety system that detects temperature, humidity, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and human presence in a room. It draws attention and gives an alert to urge ventilation, cooling or heating, dehumidification, or humidification. Samples were shipped in March 2015.
