SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Integrated Device Technology Inc. (IDT) has purchased the video processing technology and related assets from Silicon Optix Inc. for an undisclosed price.
With the deal, IDT (San Jose) expands its portfolio. In addition, IDT has acquired the members of the Silicon Optix HQV intellectual property and engineering teams.
The HQV video processing technology enables HD images possible by utilizing features such as true 1080i-to-1080p HD deinterlacing and a sophisticated multi-directional diagonal filter that ensures video free from jagged edges.
IDT plans to operate the resulting business as part of its Video and Display Operation, which is based out of the company's San Jose headquarters. The new division will be primarily located in the existing Silicon Optix Toronto, Canada facility.
''With the increasing success of the DisplayPort standard and our PanelPort products, we believe the flat panel display market is undergoing an important evolution which will result in enhanced high definition quality and performance for the consumer. The HQV technology complements our PanelPort devices and broader video product portfolio,'' said Ted Tewksbury, IDT president and CEO, in a statement.
