-- Based on its self-innovated technology, Legend Silicon has successfully taped out its new China-standard DMB-TH iGB20600-2006j compliant demodulator chip LGS-8813/8913 at Grace Semiconductor on the 0.18um technology platform. After performing various lab and field tests, the advanced demodulator chip using the TDS-OFDM technology, has met and exceeded international standards. Particularly in the area of noise reduction during signal retrieval, Legend Siliconfs product has performed better than that manufactured by Europe or the U.S. The company owns 100% of its patents on its new demodulator chip and has recently introduced the final product in the China market.
During the productfs design and development process, DMB-TH is created with a cost-effective approach as well as taking in consideration that the Chinese foundries have the ability and scale for mass production as demand is expected to grow in the next few years. Thus far, Legend Silicon has established relationships with various suppliers such as Grace, and its product has already begun trial production and testing.
gWith the official release of a new DVB terrestrial standard in China and the mature technology of 0.18um, the DMB-TH chipset and its more advanced future product line(s) will propel the digitalization of Chinafs broadcast and TV industry to the next level while meeting the needs of its consumer.h said Lan Jun, General Manager of Legend Silicon.
gWefre glad to see Chinese government release its very own nationwide DVB terrestrial standard. The successful cooperation between Grace and Legend Silicon will bring volume production and profit to both parties.h said Dr. Arthur Kuo, EVP of worldwide sales and marketing of Grace, gIt is an important milestone for the industrialization of DTV terrestrial broadcast as well as a representation of successful progress from the collaboration of various partners in DTV industry.h About Legend Silicon
