FlexiTV implements television signal demodulation, traditionally done in silicon, in software.
"Mirics is building significant product inventory to meet the larger than expected customer demand for FlexiTV in 2010," said Simon Atkinson, CEO of Mirics, in statement. "To support this demand and meet future needs, we have strengthened the global sales support team, including additional distribution channels in Southeast Asia, and have also added further engineering resources with a new development team in Asia."
