Imagination demonstrates real time Wi-Fi and reveals ATSC capabilities on latest ENSIGMA UCCP310 communications IP platform

Mobile multi-standard programmable communications IP core delivers both broadcast and Wi-Fi standards

Las Vegas, USA, 7th January 2010: Imagination Technologies,
a leading multimedia chip technologies company, is demonstrating a test chip
incorporating Imagination’s latest ENSIGMA UCCP310 IP platform at CES 2010 in Las Vegas (7-10 January
2010). This is the only multi-standard communications IP core available in the
market today that can be demonstrated to deliver
both 802.11 a/b/g Wi-Fi connectivity and a
broad suite of demodulators required for digital TV broadcasts worldwide,
including ATSC and all of the major European and Japanese terrestrial
standards, in a single programmable IP core.

UCCP310 delivers not only a growing suite
of standards required for worldwide cable, terrestrial and satellite TV as well
as digital radio and mobile TV, but also Wi-Fi connectivity to enable the most
comprehensive broadcast and communications functionality in consumer
electronics products.

Tony King-Smith, VP marketing,
Imagination says: “”We are excited to be demonstrating our latest ENSIGMA UCCP310
IP platform in silicon for the first time at CES 2010. Utilising our UCC
Series3 architecture, UCCP310 redefines the concept of integrating all forms of
connectivity and broadcast communications into high volume consumer products.  By delivering the widest range of TV receiver functionality
including ATSC alongside Wi-Fi and other connectivity standards, we believe the
UCC Series3 architecture is set to revolutionise internet-connected TVs,
set-top boxes and mobile devices. It is also a key component in our recently
announced Connected Processor strategy.””

The UCCP310 platform is designed to support
the ever increasing number of standards for communications in a proven,
highly-efficient and extraordinarily flexible programmable solution. It
delivers multi-standard demodulation support for the 802.11a/b/g family of Wi-Fi
standards, class-leading support for digital TV (ATSC (8VSB), Nordig Unified
2.0 DVB-T, full-seg ISDB-T, mobile TV (DVB-H, T-DMB, 1-seg ISDB-T) and digital
radio reception (ISDB-Tmm, DAB, DAB+, DMB-R and FM with RDS). Other key
features include support for multiple UCC engines, diversity, execution of
multiple standards simultaneously on a single UCC engine, and expansion bus

UCC Series3, the third generation of the
architecture at the heart of the ENSIGMA UCCP multi-standard programmable
communications IP platform family delivers market-leading performance for every
standard available, while offering a fully programmable ultra low power solution
in small silicon area.

Within the UCCP310 platform, UCC Series3’s
programmable radio technology provides physical layer demodulation and
modulation. A dedicated 32-bit META™ processor performs system housekeeping,
manages data-link processing for DVB-H and 802.11a/b/g, and distributes data
using the platform’s own DMA controller.

The ENSIGMA UCCP310 IP platform is
available for licensing now.
