LONDON Silicon Hive B.V. (Eindhoven, The Netherlands) has set up a technology collaboration with Intel Corp. to apply its parallel processing technology across mobile and embedded segments based on the Intel Atom Processor roadmap.
Previously, Intel Capital had led a $7 million investment round in Silicon Hive.
At about the same time, in October 2008, Silicon Hive signed a licensing deal allowing Intel to use Silicon Hive's technology in mobile products (see Intel licenses Silicon Hive technology for use mobile applications)
“We are excited to work with Intel to bring Silicon Hive parallel processing technology to the vast ecosystem of Atom-based SOCs and their very broad consumer applications,” said Atul Sinha, CEO of Silicon Hive. “The strengthening of relationship between Intel and Silicon Hive offers a major growth opportunity for Silicon Hive and takes us further in our vision of mass-deployment of Silicon Hive’s technology for consumer benefit.”
Pankaj Kedia, director of global ecosystem programs in Intel Corp.’s Ultra Mobility Group, added, ” Intel’s collaboration with Silicon Hive has the potential to enable significantly richer media experiences as we evolve our Atom roadmap to meet the needs of the smartphone and embedded market segments.””
Silicon Hive designs, builds and licenses application-specific solutions for imaging, video processing and communications. The company’s products enable semiconductor and consumer electronics companies to make fully programmable system-on-chips improving time to market performance.
