Iwasaki Electronics Co., Ltd. (岩崎技研工業株式会社; Iwasaki Giken Kogyo Co., Ltd.; formerly Iwasaki Engineering Co., Ltd. in English) was a Kyoto-based company with an office in Tokyo. It was primarily known for making software development tools such as in-circuit emulators. Hiroji Iwasaki was the president. [1] [2] It may have shut down around 2000. [3]

Iwasaki was first contracted by Nintendo to reverse engineer Donkey Kong so the latter could produce the sequel Donkey Kong Junior. [4] Nintendo did not have the source code as that was written by another company (Ikegami Tsushinki). Iwasaki would go on to program several of Nintendo's early Famicom/NES games. Members of Iwasaki then started a new company in 1986 called Intelligent Systems, which continues to develop games and tools and has maintained a close relationship with Nintendo for its entire existence.
