THine Adopts Scalado’s IP to its ISP for Smart Phones

May 31, 2011

TOKYO and LUND, Sweden, May 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — THine Electronics,
Inc. (JASDAQ: 6769, “THine”), the global leader in high-speed interface and
provider of mixed-signal LSI for flat panel displays and mobile phones, and
Scalado, the leader in imaging software solutions, have announced today that
THine adopts Scalado’s IP to its image signal processors (ISP) for smart

THine has started its ISP business since it completed an M&A deal in
January 2009 and launched the world-highest throughput ISP product for
13-mega-pixel digital still cameras of mobile phones as well as an
8-mega-pixel product. THine plans to develop new products with larger pixels,
higher throughput, and flexible functions for smart phone markets. Such new
products will have better noise reduction performance in movies, higher
sensitivity, and anti-shaking functions with higher speed as well as more
flexible options for additional functions in mobile handsets. THine will
achieve both of faster image signal processing and flexibility in consuming
captured images, using Scalado’s SpeedTagsTM.

After processing image signal captured by CMOS sensors, THine’s ISP
generally transmits pixel data with encoding JPEG. Application processors can
reduce required memory capacities for data by enabling random access in JPEG
data, enabling high-speed consumption by combination of THine’s high
throughput ISP and Scalado’s SpeedTagsTM.

“Since THine’s ISP technology has the world-highest-level throughput,
THine can bring out Scalado’s advantages in high-speed random access in JPEG
data and offer new value for mobile systems,” said Mr. Masahiro Kato, COO and
Managing Director of THine. “THine plans to deliver its new products to
global customers widely.”

“It is of big value that THine, having great reputation in Asian markets,
selects Scalado’s IP,” said Mr. Fadi Abbas, Chief Marketing Officer/VP
BizDev, Co-Founder of Scalado. “Therefore, I expect that synergetic value
based on both companies’ collaborative advantages will expand to smart phone
markets widely.”
