Taiwan TITC licenses compression IP to Panasonic System LSI
Press release [Thursday 2 January 2014]
Taiwan TITC (TITC) announced that TITC licensed its compression IP to System LSI Business Division of Panasonic Corporation (Panasonic System LSI).
TITC solution helps cutting the memory size of the frame buffer, reducing the requirement of I/O bandwidth, and in some cases easing the EMI problem in system design which is caused by higher data rate and enlarged PCB and complex signal routing.
"We are expecting to reduce memory size and band-width of our SOC by using TITC's IP", says Tekehiro Kamada, a general manager of Panasonic System LSI. TITC's unique and robust compression technology (IP) has the possibility to reduce the memory size. "With the efficient IP support from TITC, we will be able to accelerate our development of image processing system", added a technical leader of Panasonic System LSI.
"We are glad to reach this agreement of IP licensing partnership. With this agreement, TITC provides not only top quality of image compression IP, but also system know-how in reducing the data rate of the image signal traveling from a device to another." Says Mr. Star Sung, the CEO of Taiwan TITC. TITC IPs successfully penetrated to most world top smart phone vendors since Q4/2011. TITC keep investing in lossless compression IPs, providing best solutions and customer design for our world top partners. "After long waiting time, evaluation is done, and we are excited to know that Panasonic's System LSI products adopt our IP." adds Mr. Blue Lan, the head of R&D of TITC.
Some global system and IC suppliers in mobile phone, image sensor, ISP, DSC/DV, DVD/STB, 3D/Gaming are adopting TITC IPs and solutions for cutting the power consumption, reducing the memory cost and easing the EMI issues.
