Yokohama, Japan
Start Date
End Date

Yokohama, October 4, 2015 - Macnica, Inc. today announced that it is exhibiting at Embedded Technology 2015 to be held at Pacifico Yokohama from November 18 to 20, 2015. Macnica booth showcases the embedded, security and ICT technologies by combining necessary elements for IoT in the form of proof of concept by Mpression, in addition to the FPGA solutions that Mpression has offered to the embedded technology market. IoT systems require collection and integration of various technology elements ranging from sensor data collection to data processing, wireless data transfer, data storage in cloud environment, security of the data and network, big data analysis and visualization.

Macnica, the technical distribution company, combines the expertise derived from both of its semiconductor and networking business domains to demonstrate the technologies needed in all levels of IoT systems as "Mpression IoT PoC." Macnica also presents at the technology conference in the IoT track with the title "Security requirement and countermeasure for IoT embedded system." Kenji Ohno from Macnica, Inc. and Taiji Koike from Macnica Networks Corp. discuss the necessary security features for IoT and the countermeasures against the security threats. (November 20, 4:00-4:45, Track # F205)
