Hitachi America Forms Embedded Business Group

Hitachi America is targeting the embedded systems market with its new business unit, the Embedded Business Group. The unit will initially focus on data management for lightweight devices such as smart phones, navigation systems, set top boxes and digital video recorders. The increasing scale and power of small devices is making data management middleware both possible and necessary. Makers of these devices face challenging data management issues, and Hitachi is bringing to market a sophisticated light-weight data manager that will save development time and money, speeding products to market.
