NEC (Nippon Electric) are a Japanese electronics firm, responsible for a number of parts used in Sega console and arcade hardware. NEC also released the PC-Engine/TurboGrafx-16, a rival to the Sega Mega Drive. NEC later published video games for Sega consoles.
NEC's in-house video game development team before the mid-1990s was called NEC Avenue; this was eventually consolidated with other software developers to form NEC Interchannel.
