“IoT isn’t a market. It’s a phenomenon.” – Norio Nakajima, EE Times, August 8, 2016

Junko Yoshida, Chief International Correspondent for EE Times, published an excellent interview of Norio Nakajima, executive vice president of Kyoto-based Murata Manufacturing Co. responsible for the communication and sensor, and energy business groups. The interview covers a range of topics from wireless modules and sensors for smartphones, auto, and the IoT, as well as battery technology – Murata recently acquired Sony’s battery business.

“Our initial focus is on industrial IoT — everything from lighting to air controls— in hospitals, museums and manufacturing sites. We work with those promoting Industry 4.0.” – Norio Nakajima, EE Times, August 8, 2016

We highly recommend reading her interview of Nakajima-san here. Also, you can connect with an expert from Murata on the HWTrek platform here.

Meet the sophisticated craftsmanship of the Kyoto hardware ecosystem

If you’d like to connect in person with sophisticated manufacturers in Kyoto­ like Murata, then HWTrek’s Asia Innovation Tour is a perfect opportunity to do so.


HWTrek will embark on its 4th Asia Innovation Tour in November. In Japan, we will start off the tour in Kyoto, the home of sophisticated craftsmanship that has been cultivated through its long history. With a rich industry ecosystem – from traditional to cutting-edge technology industries – the selected tour participants will be exposed to a variety of expertise and solutions that can prove valuable for advancing product innovation.

Following Kyoto, we’ll take the participants to Osaka. With about 65% of all industrial production represented by Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs), Osaka is regarded as a hotspot for SME activity. The handpicked participants will travel to Osaka to gain exclusive insights into these home-grown companies that have risen to become world-leading technology providers.

But, first, the tour begins in Shenzhen, China‘s Silicon Valley. The Asia Innovation Tour is revisiting Shenzhen – the vibrant metropolis of collaboration, creativity, and innovation – for another member-exclusive Meetup event. Get immersed in the fast-growing and evolving hub for hardware resource development, and tap into opportunities for growth.
