Panasonic Corporation, formerly known as Matsushita Denki and Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., has been the company that supported the MSX standard the longest, having started out with the MSX1 CF-2000 in late 1983 and being the only official producer of the final generation, the MSX turbo R. The last model being the FS-A1GT released in 1992.

Until mid-1986, the National brand was used for Japanese releases and the Panasonic brand for the International releases after which it was harmonised and the Panasonic brand was also used for MSX in Japan. In 1993, Panasonic dropped support and production for the MSX turbo R and decided to focus on the 3DO game console.

Panasonic created a lot of different hardware for the MSX, ranging from computers to printers to external cartridges. They also created and published a wide range of software under the National, Panasonic and Panasoft brands.
