Taipei, June 2 (CNA) Taiwan's Institute for Information Industry (III) will soon sign a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with a Japanese graphics hardware solutions provider on the development of embedded software.

The MOU, to be signed June 4, will serve as the basis for cooperation and technology exchanges related to IC design and 3D graphics and computing, the institute said in a statement.

Feng Ming-hui, director-general of III's Smart Network System Institute, will sign the MOU on behalf of the Taipei-based institute, while Tatsuo Yamamoto will sign on behalf of Digital Media Professionals Inc. in his capacity as the company's president and CEO.

Under the MOU, the two sides will work together to develop and integrate 3D graphics solutions for embedded systems and stipulate standards for an application programming interface, according to the institute.

In May, the III signed another cooperative agreement with Fujisoft Inc. and the Open Embedded Software Foundation in Tokyo.

The moves have been part of the III's strategy to actively seek partnerships with overseas companies and institutes and help create more commercial opportunities for local companies.

Digital Media Professionals, a listed company on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, was founded in 2002 and is headquartered in Musashino, Japan.
