Zoran Corp. has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Israel-based Oren Semiconductor, a provider of demodulator ICs for HD TV market. Oren's front-end demodulator ICs complement Zoran's HDTV processors and enable Zoran to provide complete, cost-effective solutions that will accelerate the transition from analog to digital TV worldwide.

"We have worked with Oren for over a year to integrate its products into our platform and deliver a series of improved solutions for the growing digital TV markets," said Levy Gerzberg, president, CEO of Zoran. "Together we have designed new ATSC/NTSC reference designs that combine Oren's Cascade demodulator ICs with Zoran's Generation 9 and SupraHD multimedia processors. These platforms deliver a wide range of optimized solutions for our OEM customers and have already enabled us to secure multiple design wins for products that we expect to see in the market later this year. The Oren team will join Zoran's DTV division led by Ram Ofir, SVP, general manager."

"Our collaboration with Zoran has delivered a series of turnkey platforms that shorten the design time by reducing the effort needed to finely tune hardware and software components for each new digital television appliance," said Avraham Menachem, president, CEO at Oren Semiconductor.
