SANTA CLARA, Calif., December 15, 2015 – Granite River Labs (GRL), a global leader in engineering services and test solutions for high speed connectivity, today announced the opening of its new lab located in Shin Yokohama, Japan. GRL Director of Signal Integrity Engineering Miki Takahashi, recipient of the SD Association 2014 Innovation and Technology Award, will provide overall technical leadership.

GRL Japan has been authorized by the USB-IF to provide official USB logo certification testing. GRL Japan will also offer official certification testing, pre-compliance, and debugging support focused on high speed interfaces including DisplayPort, PCI Express, DDR, SD Card/UHS-II, SATA, CFast, HDMI, MIPI and 10G/100G Ethernet. In addition, GRL brings to Japan industry leadership in USB Type-CTM and Power Delivery and the emerging Internet of Things (IoT), and deep expertise in signal integrity and protocol analysis.

GRL will focus on the entire Japanese hardware ecosystem, from IC developers to manufacturers, offering services that extend well beyond the traditional “test lab”, such as electrical characterization and debugging of early silicon across process, voltage, and temperature (PVT), signal and power integrity validation and consultation, and turnkey product design services. GRL has supported a growing number of Japan-based customers since opening a sales office in 2013.

“We are very excited to expand GRL’s presence in Japan,” said Johnson Tan, co-Founder and CEO of Granite River Labs. “Japanese hardware developers maintain legendary standards for design and performance, placing strong emphasis on validation at every stage of the product lifecycle. These values match well with GRL’s deep engineering expertise and industry leadership in new and emerging technologies.”
