Tokyo, October 2, 2013 - NEC Corporation's (NEC; TSE: 6701) "Cloud-based Electric Vehicle (EV) & Plug-in Hybrid Vehicle (PHV) Battery Charging Infrastructure Services," took the "Grand Prix" award at CEATEC JAPAN 2013 in the Network & Services category for the "CEATEC AWARD 2013," the exhibition's recognition of outstanding technologies, products and services. NEC's "Portable DNA Analyzer," the world's first fully integrated portable DNA Analyzer, took runner-up in the Products category.
NEC's Cloud-based EV & PHV Battery Charging Infrastructure Services provide a convenient battery charging service which can be utilized by anyone, anywhere at any time by interconnecting a variety of cloud services from service providers. This new service supports a multi-payment function using e-money to enable EV battery charging and is compatible with a variety of battery chargers. NEC aims to drive its smart energy business related to EV/PHV by leveraging its advanced cloud technologies.

Moreover, once available, NEC's "Portable DNA Analyzer" is expected to successfully complete analysis of materials in approximately 25 to 60 minutes, in a portable, miniaturized suitcase sized package. Conventional DNA analysis uses separate and often bulky devices to carry out each phase of analysis, typically requiring more than one day. This new device will aid criminal investigations and crime prevention through expanded and accelerated use of DNA analysis for individual profiling.
