OXFORD, United Kingdom, April 16, 2013 - Imperas today announced that it has named Upwind Technology as its technical support provider in Japan. Upwind will provide both pre- and post-sales support to the growing number of Imperas customers in Japan, spanning markets from automotive to industrial controls and consumer electronics. Tokyo NanoFarm will continue to be the sales channel for the Imperas software development and test products.
Upwind Technology was founded in 2002, and its president, Kenichi Nakamura, is well known in the embedded electronics industry in Japan. Nakamura regularly writes articles for embedded journals, participates in industry committees and conferences, and drives embedded software technology development in Japan. Upwind’s software engineers provide services for the development and test of embedded software, including GNU software and GNU/Linux systems.

In particular, M*SDK, with its advance tools for embedded software verification, analysis and debug, including CPU- and OS-aware capabilities, brings significant value to developers in Japan.”
“Japan represents a large market for embedded systems and software, and is a region where the use of Imperas’ products has exhibited rapid growth,”said Larry Lapides, vice president of sales for Imperas. “We have had Imperas users in Japan in both the industrial and academic worlds since the launch of Open Virtual Platforms (www.OVPworld.org). We are excited to have an organization of the quality and breadth of experience of Upwind Technology supporting Imperas customers in Japan.
