Royal Philips Electronics and Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd have introduced the Universal Home Application Programming Interface (UH-API) initiative. The program creates a new application programming interface standard that will allow independent software vendors (ISVs), system integrators and device vendors to create middleware and application software on top of semiconductor-based systems.

The semiconductors units of Philips and Samsung will jointly establish, maintain and promote the UH-API initiative. Philips and Samsung plan to extend the invitation to other companies to participate in enhancing and deploying the UH-API specification throughout the consumer electronics industry in every new product that comes to market.

Both companies say they will realign their internal resources to develop UH-API-compliant semiconductor chipsets and solutions. Philips' Nexperia Home semiconductor system solutions will be UH-API-compliant and Samsung will initially introduce the new standard to its HD TV chipsets and expand to other applications. Drafts of UH-API are expected to be available in the first quarter of this year.
