Silicon & Software Systems Ltd. (S3) said that I&C Technology Co., Ltd. (I&C Technology) has selected its mixed-signal IP for mobile TV system-on-chips (SoCs). The SoCs are in volume production for the Korean mobile TV market and integrated into new mobile phone devices. As per the agreement, the company designed and delivered the low power 90nm ADC for mobile TV applications to I&C Technology.

This ADC IP was developed by the company’s engineers based in their design center in Lisbon, Portugal.

S3 achieved first-time-right silicon and helped us to enter volume production within nine months of their IP delivery. The ultra low power attributes of this ADC IP mean that we can offer mobile handset manufacturers the lowest power SoC solution in the market, a key issue for the device market. The key advantages of working with S3 are first-time-right silicon, best-in-class performance, on-time delivery and excellent integration support. Our partnership with S3 has enabled us to develop the most optimum SoC solution for Mobile TV, said Gea Ok Cho, chief technology officer, at I&C Technology.

Commenting on the company’s success at I&C Technology, Mike Murray, general manager for Mixed Signal IP at S3, said We are very pleased to have enabled I&C Technology to get to market quicker with its T-DMB product through the rapid and successful deployment of our leading edge mixed-signal IP and we look forward to extending our working relationship further for their next SoC developments.

The company has grown its portfolio of silicon proven mixed-signal IP since it acquired Acacia Semiconductor S.A. in 2008. The company has also increased its client base in the Asian market.
