Keywords:HDMI supply agreement? HDTV? HDMI connectivity?

Fairchild Semiconductor has signed a supply agreement with RedMere, under which it will receive known-good die connectivity products from the latter for the HDTV and consumer multimedia markets.

Fairchild will introduce a new line of products starting with HDMI switch and repeater devices incorporating RedMere's patented MagnifEye technology, targeting high-volume repeater and multiport HDMI connectivity solutions for HDTV applications. MagnifEye technology eliminates the cable-effects of skew, cross-talk and EMI, and significantly improves system reliability. The technology is particularly beneficial in mainstream HDTV equipment with cable lengths of 2-5m or where low-cost after-market HDMI cables have been used.

"According to In-Stat, HDMI is experiencing record growth with HDMI-enabled device shipments, predicted to grow to 78 percent per year through 2010. Applications include HDTVs, STBs, projection systems, DVD recorders, media PCs and other consumer devices," said Jerry Johnston, Fairchild's product line director for analog switches.

"Reliable, high-performance interconnect has clearly become a major differentiator in the HDTV market," said Peter Smyth, CEO, RedMere Technology. "RedMere's MagnifEye technology is the leading de-skew and equalization architecture in the industry. This strategic relationship with Fairchild provides RedMere with a top-tier manufacturing and marketing partner and will provide HDTV manufacturers with a broader portfolio of world-class interconnect products from a world-leader in high-volume interface solutions."
