Microdevice Technologies

Epson will provide traction for the development of smart communications, power, transportation and manufacturing solutions by providing advanced quartz timing and sensing solutions and low-power semiconductor solutions.

Microdevice technologies shaping the future

Epson will provide traction for ultra-smart societies by refining its miniaturization and precision technologies and exploring new added value. We will also help to reduce the power consumption of products by using Epson's low-power and control technologies to provide low-power solutions.

Realizing ultra-smart societies by contributing to the development of compact, high-performance products


Miniaturized timing devices are in demand not only for use in smartphones and other mobile products but also in the burgeoning IoT market. We will continue development work to strengthen our lineup of small products.

In telecommunications and networks, businesses that capitalize on 5G are expected to expand, so we will also continue to strengthen the competitiveness of our accurate, precise oscillators and high-frequency oscillators that support 5G.

CASE (connected, autonomous, shared, electric) is an acronym that summarizes four major trends that are transforming the automotive industry. In response to the increased adoption of electronic automotive technologies, we will develop our lineup of high-precision real-time clock modules and other timing devices and will drive the development of gyro-sensors, IMUs, and other sensors for safety systems in self-driving cars.

Fulfilling our social responsibility with microdevice technologies

We have increased the power efficiency, accuracy, and precision of Epson's real-time clock (RTC) modules by combining the quartz and power-saving semiconductor technologies Epson began developing for watches. By providing products that consume even less current for IoT terminals and other systems that need to be small and energy efficient, we will help customers create eco-conscious finished products that operate for longer on smaller batteries. We will fulfill our responsibility to society by using this technology to develop products that consume less power and thereby contribute to environmental conservation.
