Our experience shows

We are continually developing new and innovative products and solutions such as the World’s FIRST single chip decoder for 8K resolution, the FIRST single-chip H.265 real-time video encoder and the World’s FIRST graphics display controller with OpenVX Hardware Accelerator. Developing new technologies, is what we do, for a wide range of applications in the automotive, consumer, healthcare, industrial IoT, security, networking, video and broadcasting sectors. So, there will be many more FIRSTs to come!

In Europe we employ over 250 people who are situated in various locations such as Frankfurt and Neuried in Germany and Maidenhead in UK.
