Imagination Technologies opens office in Taiwan

Seminars Will Introduce the Company to Taiwanese Technology Industry


Imagination Technologies, a leader in system-on-chip intellectual property (SoC IP), has opened its first Taiwanese office, in Taipei, to serve the world class Taiwanese fabless industry.

Maxwell Lin, formerly of EDOM and Cirrus Logic has been appointed as Imagination Technologies’ Director of Sales for Taiwan.

Imagination Technologies, one of the world’s top ten IP companies (source: Gartner), provides technology to partners including ARM, Centrality Communications, Freescale, Frontier Silicon, Intel, Philips, Renesas, Samsung, Sharp, Sunplus and Texas Instruments.

Launching its Taiwan office, Imagination Technologies, in collaboration with the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI), is holding seminars in Hsinchu and Taipei, to introduce its Silicon Intellectual Property (SIP) through presentations and demonstrations.

Demonstrations include:

  • Solutions for digital and analogue TV, including DVB-T, multi-standard SD & HD decode, image enhancement and multi-standard demodulation
  • Solutions for multi-standard mobile digital TV (T-DMB & DVB-H on one device)
  • 3D graphics & video for multimedia in mobile phones, PDAs and PMPs
  • DAB digital radio & digital audio

Says David McBrien, VP Business Development, Imagination Technologies: “”;Semiconductor IP cores are the most effective way of accelerating the development of competitive SoC devices while reducing business risk. We create flexible, competitive and pre-verified technology that partners may not have the time or expertise to develop themselves in areas such as multi-standard demodulation, HD video and 3D graphics. This enables our partners to add value and differentiate in technology areas where they are strong, providing market leading solutions in a timely manner.””;

The ability to license complete SoC platform solutions that are integrated, optimised and pre-verified also allows partners to enter new applications digital radio, mobile TV, 3D UI, PMP, IPTV, etc. – ahead of their competitors.

Imagination Technologies seminars will include an address by Dr. C.W. Jen, Chairman, Taiwan SoC Consortium as well as expert insight from Imagination’s team into key application areas for mobile graphics, video, audio and TV technologies.

ITRI is a non-profit R&D organization engaging in applied research and technical service. It serves as the technical centre for industry in Taiwan.
