Toumaz Technology Ltd disclosed that its newly formed joint venture, Future Waves Pte Ltd, has developed its first product for Digital Audio Broadcast (DAB) based on Toumaz's proprietary ultra-low power silicon technology platform.

Taiwan-based Future Waves, an RF CMOS fabless design house, is licensing Toumaz's core AMx advanced mixed signal and RF technologies to develop digital broadcasting receiver applications.

Future Waves will make functional samples of its first DAB RF tuner chipFENIXavailable to selected customers from mid Q3 2005. According to the press release, the FENIX (fnx14701) highly integrated single chip RF solution for DAB and FM offers the lowest power consumption and cost, combined with the highest functionality, available in the industry today.
