President’s Message

Move forward with concrete steps in the areas of automotive,industrial equipment and high-speed communications,for the continued growth.

Tetsuo HikawaSince our founding in 1990 as Japan’s first fabless maker specializing in system LSIs, MegaChips Corporation has focused its resources on research and development to hone its unique technology and placed emphasis on building a comprehensive system that plans, develops and provides system LSIs for customers. Always motivated by our desire to contribute to enhancing the competitiveness of our customers, we have combined our knowledge of applications and systems with our expertise in LSIs, thereby designing and generating outstanding system LSIs that meet the needs of customers and the times. Serving as a development partner for customers and supporting them as they overcome their problems or differentiate their products has been a great source of our growth.

The world is currently experiencing significant changes due to the breakneck evolution of technology, such as IoT and AI. We must respond swiftly to a surrounding business environment which is rapidly undergoing significant changes as well.

Considering it an opportunity for the Group’s further growth, we aim at becoming an increasingly major player by pursuing growth on two fronts: the stable ASIC business, which has a strong customer base, and the ASSP business, which has a competitive edge in emerging fields.

Concretely, in the ASIC business, in addition to the game console, digital camera, and office machine core fields, we explore new and influential customers in the industrial equipment fields, both inside and outside Japan.
In the ASSP business, we will focus our managerial resources on the growth areas including automotive, industrial equipment, and telecom infrastructure, and foster new business of major core pillars that would contribute in the future revenue by development and provision of high-value-added solutions.

While promoting business measures for sustainable growth, we will further strengthen our management system that can quickly adapt to changes in the business environment and take on the challenge of creating new value.
