JIG-SAW Executes a Business Alliance Contract for Joint IoT Service with Sony Semiconductor Solutions Corporation
JIG-SAW INC.（”JIG-SAW”, Representative Director, President & CEO Masunaru Yamakawa）announces that it has executed a business alliance contract with Sony Semiconductor Solutions Corporation (”Sony Semiconductor Solutions”, Representative Director, President & CEO Terushi Shimizu) to jointly provide a service that combines JIG-SAW’s neqto: IoT micro-engine with Sony Semiconductor Solutions’ IoT Board Computer SPRESENSE™ and communication modules (“semiconductor products” below).
This service embeds JIG-SAW’s neqto: engine, software service that enables direct device management from the cloud, onto Sony Semiconductor Solutions’ semiconductor products. As a result, users can directly manage equipment from the cloud, enable two-way communication between equipment and their own cloud system with a single touch, perform secure data transmission, and have the ability to remotely change settings and update any number of devices as a group. This service will become available in Japan and the United States on December 17, 2020 for use by manufacturers of manufacturing equipment, industrial equipment, communication equipment, and other products.
neqto: is a software license for the use of ARM® Cortex®-M4 compatible embedded software developed by JIG-SAW. neqto: enables the remote control of devices and bi-directional communication between devices and any cloud, from anywhere.
SPRESENSE, an IoT board equipped with a smart sensing processor, incorporates a high-performance GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) receiver innovated by Sony, as well as an audio codec that supports high-resolution audio sound sources. It is an original, multi-CPU board that can be used in various IoT systems such as drones, smart speakers, sensing cameras, and more.
