Cooperation with EDAC

Cooperation with EDAC and Various Organizations

To reinforce its ability to distribute information on advanced design solutions and technologies, in 2001 JEITA formed a cooperative relationship with the Electronic Design Automation Consortium (EDAC). Together, the two organizations have undertaken various initiatives to enhance the EDSFair. One of these has been to invite EDA-related venture companies from Japan and overseas, who have not exhibited previously, to participate in the event.

The Fair has continued to receive acclaim as the sole event in Japan enabling overseas participants to cultivate clients and establish sales channels in the Japanese market. It is also highly regarded for providing Japanese designers and developers with direct access to the latest technologies from overseas. Going forward, JEITA and EDAC will reinforce their cooperative relationships with various organizations from Europe, North America and Asia, while actively pursuing technical information from around the world. In these ways, we hope to foster progress of the electronics industry.

What is JEITA?

The Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association (JEITA) was formed on November 1, 2000, through the merger of the Electronic Industries Association of Japan (EIAJ) and Japan Electronic Industries Development Association (JEIDA). JEITA is a new industry organization in Japan with activities covering both the electronics and information technology (IT) fields.

JEITA is an association of 520 prominent Japanese electronics and IT-related companies. Each board undertakes various activities beyond individual corporate interests to contribute to the further enhancement of specific technological areas. The EDA Technical Committee, a subcommittee of the Semiconductor Board hosts the annual EDSFair as part of its activities to promote the dissemination of design solutions and technologies for electronic circuits and systems. In this way, it deliver information on the latest design solutions technologies emanating from Japan and overseas, and provides an opportunity for all industry-related people to exchange information.

Continuously Growing Semiconductor Market

Japan's semiconductor market is expected to average 4% growth annually thanks to robust demand for consumer digital equipment such as flat panel display TVs and the widespread adoption of 3G mobile phones. Further growth is expected as the global market as a whole adopts the latest technologies that enable ubiquitous computing.
