ACE Associated Compiler Experts bv is expanding its presence and commitment into the Japanese market by announcing Japan Novel as its new sales representative in Japan.

ACE Associated Compiler Experts bv and Japan Novel signed a non-exclusive agreement in which Japan Novel will act as ACE's sales representative in the Japanese embedded market.

According to terms of the agreement, Japan Novel will act as an official sales representative responsible for ACE's premier product, the CoSy® compiler development system. CoSy allows developers to automatically generate compilers for maximum performance for their targeted architectures.

"We are pleased to represent ACE and their flagship CoSy product in Japan", said Munemitsu Shioyama, sales manager of Japan Novel. "ACE and CoSy fit well in our market and product portfolio. We look forward to a successful business alliance between our two companies. "

ACE is excited about their expansion into the Japanese market and anticipates an effective and positive working relationship with Japan Novel. "We've searched for the right company to represent us in Japan, and we've found a good relationship with Japan Novel," said Marco Roodzant, vice president of marketing and sales for ACE.

Japan Novel, founded in 1980, is an independent software development house for mostly industrial customers. One of Japan Novel's specialties is to do evaluation services of C/C++/Java compilers based on its own proprietary set of test software for the compilers.

ACE Associated Compiler Experts bv (a wholly owned subsidiary of ACE Associated Computer Experts, Amsterdam, The Netherlands) is a world leader in the production of compiler development tools. Its open CoSy compiler development platform gives compiler developers the ability to achieve a similar leading edge position in the construction of better and faster optimizing compilers for architectures ranging from 4-bit DSPs to 256-bit VLIW processors. CoSy also supports a wide range of programming languages including C, Fortran and Java.
