    Kyocera Partners with IBM
    In a joint statement, IBM and Kyocera Mita Corp (KMC) have said that IBM’s energy-efficient technology is being used throughout the latter’s product line, and that this technology will be further harnessed in order to enhance next-generation printers.
    According to reports, Kyocera, after having using a standard IBM PowerPC 750 processor, has been able to utilize advanced, customized IBM technologies to bring printers to market faster.Besides, Kyocera also employs IBM ASICs (Application Specific Integrated Circuits), with or without Power Architecture technology cores, across their Work Group systems, ranging from low-end monochrome single-function page laser printers to high-performance, multi-function mono and color laser systems.Moreover, as printers are upgraded, Kyocera merely upgrades the IBM PowerPC processor with a faster model, using the same interface, ASIC, and board design in order to obtain fast time-to-market for system refresh cycles.Speaking at the occasion, Makoto Koga, executive officer and senior general manager – corporate R&D division, KMC, said, “IBM continues to provide Kyocera Mita with excellent energy-efficient technology, while not compromising on performance.”"IBM’s rich IP portfolio allows Kyocera to add features for differentiation at the system level, which helps enable Kyocera’s printer technology to be more successful. And finally, IBM offers a superior architecture for scalability from low-end to high-end systems,” Koga said.Adding to it, Tom Reeves, vice president – semiconductor products and technology services, IBM, said, “Companies like Kyocera Mita are looking for lower-power, high-performance solutions, and IBM has the answers. IBM provides the technologies to make it easier for Kyocera to provide competitive systems in rapid time to a constantlychangingmarket.”Interestingly, Kyocera was one of the very first companies to understand the value of Power Architecture technology for printers. Around ten years ago, the company took a calculated risk, and re-designed its printer systems to use IBM processors and ASIC technology.
