New Demodulator Core for the China DTV Market from Iberium Communications

SAN FRANCISCO,. Aug. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Iberium Communications, Inc., a leading provider of digital television (DTV) demodulation intellectual property, announced today availability of its Paco digital demodulator core for the China DTV market. Paco follows the company's highly successful Garcia VSB/QAM core and is fully compliant with the digital terrestrial standard DTMB (GB20600-2006), supporting all single-carrier and multi-carrier transmission modes. The company also announced that it has licensed its Paco core to a major Japanese consumer electronics vendor.

The Paco core is based on Iberium's proprietary Hyberium architecture which facilitates efficient implementations of single- and multi-carrier DTV demodulators based on a unified computational engine. This sophisticated architecture results in a much smaller implementation than competing solutions that have chosen to employ side-by-side demodulators. "As a natural continuation of our existing North American DTV product line, the Paco core represents the first step towards a true multi-standard DTV demodulation solution that can be feasibly implemented in silicon" said Dr. Bobe Simovich, CEO of Iberium. "We are very excited about the opportunity to enable the analog-to-digital transition in the largest and the fastest growing terrestrial DTV market in the world. Our solution offers that optimal performance-size-power design trade-off point to chip manufacturers" added Simovich. As part of its offering, Iberium provides design customization services throughout the chip design and productization processes enabling customers to further fine-tune performance and silicon parameters according to their specific product targets. Simovich indicated "We have had great success working closely with our licensees so they can offer exactly the differentiated products their customers demand. These services are a cornerstone of Iberium's business." The company intends to use the Hyberium architecture as a basis for its future demodulator products for the global DTV market.
