Another Ware has been in business since 1991 and currently has over 80 employees. Another Ware´s range of business include IT related consulting services with focus on Artificial Intelligence & Data Science, IoT product development, development of specialized software under contract, as well as operation and maintenance of some of these deliveries. One of Another Ware divisions specializes in embedded software development. Since the introduction into the Japanese market of Softing’s OPC UA toolkits, both C++ and embedded ANSI C toolkits, many customers approached Softing for a fully ported solution for µITRON. The µITRON specification is widely used in the Japanese market, and there are different vendors of µITRON solutions, which use different toolchains that need to be adapted to different hardware architectures. Another Ware and Softing started collaborating in 2016 and have achieved the goal of supplying off-the-shelf µITRON OPCUA toolkits for selected environments, and bespoke development for special cases. Another Ware also has been providing development services of custom OPC UA client and server applications using Softing’s standard and Windows OPC UA and OPC Classic toolkits, while also providing training services to their customers, who are licensees of Softing OPC toolkits.

Sherpa Inc. is a software company with over 20 years experience in embedded software development. Sherpa has developed a number of VxWorks and µITRON BSPs (board-support packages) and network drivers for special-purpose hardware developed by vendors of industrial and consumer products. In 2015 Softing and Sherpa partnered for the development of Softing’s portable industrial Ethernet device protocols for Profinet IO, EtherNet/IP and EtherCAT on to Renesas Electronics R-IN (Renesas Industrial Network Engine), which is based on µITRON RTOS, and for which Sherpa adapted Softing’s portable stacks so end users can buy an off-the shelf stack development kit, which allows almost immediate development of specific application profiles. In addition, Sherpa provides consulting for development of customer specific application profiles and the conformance test for the respective industrial Ethernet protocol association, thereby allowing customers to obtain conformance certificates within a reasonable time frame and within budget.
