Innovative Semiconductors has licensed its third generation USB 2.0 OTG PHY technology to both Frontier Silicon and Ubicom. The iPhy technology will be used in chips manufactured using 0.13um TSMC process. Frontier Silicon is the leading fabless manufacturer of semiconductors for mobile digital television (MDTV) and DAB digital radio products.

Ubicom is the leading supplier of communication processors and software platforms that address the needs of the rapidly evolving digital home and small office.

'In order for our customers to deliver compelling consumer electronics devices to market quickly, we employ leading-edge technologies', said Martin Jackson, Chief Technology Officer at Frontier Silicon.

'The significantly small footprint, low power and proven silicon of the Innovative iPhy was particularly important to us'.

'Innovative provided us with excellent support'.

'They understand very well the system-on-chip (SoC) challenges of integrating analogue blocks'.

'Their engineers responded quickly to our requests whenever we needed support'.

'This was crucial to meeting our schedule milestones', Jackson added.

'After in-depth evaluation of the available USB 2.0 PHY transceivers from the few vendors that have proven certified silicon technology', said Darrell Burns, Vice President of Engineering at Ubicom.

'We selected Innovative's iPhy because of its maturity, small area and low power'.

'We were very impressed by the quality and the quick response provided by their engineers', Burns added.

'Our iPHY technology is mature, robust and certified'.

'It is found in tens of millions of chips today, and we continue to improve our technology to enable consumer electronics manufacturers to go to market with superior performing products quickly and easily', said Nabil Takla, President and CEO for Innovative.

'We consider the quality and speed of our support to our customers to be as important as the robustness and maturity of our technology'.
