Sunplus Technology Co. Ltd, a consumer IC design company in Taiwan, and Silicon Image, a provider of semiconductor and system solutions, have partnered to jointly develop highly-integrated, advanced SoC solutions.

Combining both the companies' intellectual properties, this alliance will include a multi-phased product development aimed at speeding the adoption and proliferation of the popular Digital Visual Interface (DVI), High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI), and Serial ATA (SATA) standards across the PC and CE markets.

The program's first phase is aimed at establishing a broad product line of integrated intelligent panel controllers that are expected to enable quality visual experience for consumers of flat panel displays. The second phase of the alliance, on the other hand, centers on the delivery of a full-featured SoC offering for DVD players, based on PanelLink Cinema, Silicon Image's branded implementation of the new HDMI digital interface standard.

In the third phase, the two companies will focus on combining the benefits of their respective core IP blocks to provide full-featured, HDMI-based, digital TV receiver controllers for the digital TV receiver market.
