Imagination’s Ensigma UCCP330 delivers global broadcast TV demodulation plus Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

Unique RPU design enables single chip global connected TV, radio and much more

International CES, Las
Vegas: Imagination Technologies, a leading multimedia and
communications technologies company, is demonstrating in silicon its latest
Ensigma UCCP Series3 IP platform, a complete, licensable solution for world TV
standard demodulation plus Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, at CES 2012 in Las

Imagination’s Ensigma UCCP
IP platforms solve the ever-growing problem of proliferating broadcast and
connectivity standards by supporting them all on a single engine, and enabling them
to be integrated onto SoCs for lowest system cost. UCCP is a complete
multi-standard radio processing unit (RPU) IP platform that enables SoC
designers to integrate one or more RPUs on-chip to deliver production ready
implementations of the industry’s broadest array of TV and radio standards as
well as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, satisfying the increasingly diverse
communications needs of an ever growing number of connected consumer and mobile

The latest version of this
IP platform, the Ensigma UCCP330, delivers:

Global Digital TV –
including ATSC (8VSB), QAM (J.83B), DVB-T, DVB-T2, DVB-S, DVB-S2, DVB-C,
ISDB-T, ISDB-C, ISDB-S, SBTVD, CTTB, and mobile TV standards including DVB-H,
T-DMB, 1-seg ISDB-T

Global Digital Radio –
including DAB, DAB+, DMB-R and FM with RDS, ISDB-Tmm, ISDB-Tsb and now HD Radio

– 802.11a/b/g/n, Bluetooth

UCCP is a multi-standard
baseband processor – one IP core for all radio, TV and connectivity standards. At
the heart of all UCCPs lies the Ensigma UCC (universal communications core), a
fully programmable processor combined with highly configurable hardware thatdelivers a uniquely optimized
balance of programmability and hardware configurability. It occupies equivalent
or less silicon area compared to hard-wired, single-standard hardware solutions,
using a sophisticated combination of hardware and software to create a powerful
and flexible yet ultra-low power architecture.

Tony King-Smith, VP
marketing, Imagination says: “Imagination’s RPU approach is seen as the ‘next
wave’ of SoC integration following GPU integration on-chip – an area that
Imagination leads with its PowerVR graphics IP cores. The Ensigma UCCP330
platform delivers implementations of more than 20 standards all verified to the
highest performance levels and fully production-ready. UCCP is the ideal solution
for next-generation SoCs powering devices such as DTVs, STBs, in-car
communications or mobile phones or tablets enabling world TV, world radio,
communications, connectivity or any combination of the above.”

Ensigma UCC technology has
already shipped in tens of millions of devices. The Ensigma UCCP330 IP platform
is available for licensing now.
