@Patk0317, thanks! I look forward to your discovery...I believe that mruby is still too new, but if indeed it can fit in such a small footprint memory as they claim, I think it could be interesting...

@alex_m1, thank you. The Spansion angle you pointed out is an interesting one. Now that former Fujitsu Semi's microcontroller business is a part of Spansion, Spansion has a vested interest in promoting mruby. 

I hear the maker community in Japan is actually growing strong. I haven't had a chance to investigate more first hand, but that's what I hear from my colleagues working at EE times Japan.

@Patk0317, I agree. By using battery-less solutions, suddenly many of those IoT modules can go into so many different places.

Oh!  Sorry that we missed you last week!  Space Codesign was exhibiting at EDS Fair (combined with ET) as part of our Asian distributor, Avant Technology.  We would have loved to give you a demo of our SpaceStudio ESL hardware/software co-design EDA tool.  We had a great reception among Japanese companies for our debut, as Japan is arguably the one of the most advanced C-based hardware and systems market on the planet.

Personally, it was my first time in Japan (after all these years, after all those air miles!) and it will definitely not be my last ... :)

@garydpdx, sorry I missed you too! Glad to hear that you got a good traction among Japanese companies. Let's synchronize our watch -- next time -- when we travel that far!

I had not heard of this one. Does it have legs?

@rick, this one has legs. Echonet is something the Japanese ministry and the industry are promoting together -- thus giving more confidence among technology suppliers to move ahead with IoT in Japan.
