Nihongo|Seiko Instruments Inc.|セイコーインスツル株式会社|Seikō Insutsuru Kabushiki-gaisha, or SII, is a Japanese company, renowned for developing and commercializing semiconductor, micromechatronics, and precision timepiece technology. It is one of three core companies of the Seiko Group.

The company manufactures and sells electronic components (semiconductors, crystal oscillators, micromechatronics devices, thermal printer, coin battery, liquid crystal displays), precision parts, watches, analysis and measurement instruments, machine tools, printers, network items, information systems and services, IC dictionaries, etc. Headquartered in Makuhari business district, Mihama-ku, Chiba City, Chiba Prefecture, Japan.

In 1937 Nihongo|Daini Seikosha Co., Ltd.|第二精工舎|Dai-ni-seikōsha, literally the second workshop for manufacturing Seiko timepieces, was established in Kamedo, Kōtō, Tokyo as a spin-off of the watch manufacturing division from Nihongo|Seikosha|精工舎|Seikōsha, so is also making the Seiko watches even now. The company changed its name to Nihongo|Seiko Instruments & Electronics Ltd.|セイコー電子工業|Seikō Denshi Kōgyō in 1983 and to the current name in 1997 (セイコーインスツルメンツ "Seikō Insutsurumentsu" in 1997; セイコーインスツル "Seikō Insutsuru" in 2004). Its Suwa Plant in Suwa, Nagano Prefecture spun off as Nihongo|Suwa Seikosha Co., Ltd.|諏訪精工舎|Suwa Seikōsha in 1959 is now known as Nihongo|Seiko Epson Corporation|セイコーエプソン|Seikō Epuson.
