    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.
