Alpine Electronics Adopts Ubiquitous' DeviceSQL Embedded Database for
Use with Its Rear Vision Navi X08 Car Navigation System

Ubiquitous Corporation [JASDAQ:3858], hereby announces that Alpine Electronics, Inc. (Head Office: Nishigotanda, Shinagawa-ku; President & CEO: Seizo Ishiguro; hereinafter referred to as ‘Alpine’) has adopted Ubiquitous’ embedded database ‘UbiquitousDeviceSQL’ to incorporate it in Alpine’s Rear Vision Navi VIE-X08 car navigation system, which is selling well on the market.

Alpine’s Rear Vision Navi VIE-X08 car navigation system is a sophisticated, high-quality car navigation system product that was developed using state-of-the-art technologies to lead the next-generation car lifestyles. This product has a one-touch expressway data distribution function, which allows the user to download up-to-date expressway data and easily update the existing data by just pushing a button. In addition, the product also has an AV function that provides the highest image and tone qualities in Alpine’s history and supports a full range of media, including iPod?, iPhone™, USB memories and SD memory cards.

Rear Vision Navi VIE-X08 uses DeviceSQL for its function of managing and searching for music information across more than one medium, taking advantage of DeviceSQL’s ultrahigh-speed search function using the world’s smallest class database engine. DeviceSQL greatly contributes to the improvement of the quality and operability of Rear Vision Navi VIE-X08.

Comment from Mr. Kazuo Nakamura, Managing Director, Product Development, Alpine
“In order to meet market demands and expectations for better operability of increasing AV contents, we conducted a study of embedded databases and then selected the DeviceSQL from among several embedded database products for several reasons, such as the actual number of packages that have been used so far and its ability to operate and search with a small memory capacity. During product development, technology development members from both Ubiquitous and Alpine could cooperate with each other and consequently the product functions could be implemented successfully.”

Comment from Matt Kawauchi, President of Ubiquitous Corporation
“Alpine Electronics, Inc. is an onboard equipment maker that develops next-generation car electronics and car lifestyles. We are very pleased that Alpine has realized the advantages of Ubiquitous’ embedded database and adopted it for use with their leading-edge products. We wish to further enhance DeviceSQL and help our customers with product development.”
