“Our partnership with AIJI System moves us closer to our goal of providing a one-stop-shop for embedded developers,” said Unicoi’s President and CEO Greg Coonley. “AIJI has an extremely loyal base of developers in both Europe and Asia. We look forward to extending the reach of their products to the U.S. and Canada.”
