Silicon Image Inc. has entered a $40 million cross-licensing agreement to use and further develop Sunplus Technology Co. Ltd's intellectual property (IP) for video processors and DTV products.

The agreement augments Silicon Image's efforts to accelerate the development of its PinnaClear HDTV technology. Moreover, the transaction complements Silicon Image's acquisition of sci-worx GmbH's technology and team of 140 engineers in January.

"This transaction, together with the sci-worx acquisition, represents an important step forward in our video integration and connectivity strategy," said Steve Tirado, president and CEO, Silicon Image. "The IP from Sunplus provides several hundred man-years of proven intellectual property development in the digital television and DVD marketplace. With a larger and stronger engineering workforce drawing on the combined IP of three leaders in digital media technology, we expect to be well positioned for long-term growth through more innovative and integrated products for the consumer electronics market."
