Silicon Hive Netherlands, which commenced its India operations here, has entered into a strategic partnership with AllGo Embedded Systems to jointly develop a video signal processing (VSP) demonstration system.

According to a statement issued at the 20th VLSI Design Conference on Wednesday, Silicon Hive will provide the hardware components, while AllGo will develop the embedded software for the product.

"We will provide solutions for high performance video applications by combining our VSP expertise with HiveFlex processors of Silicon Hive," AllGo Embedded Systems CEO K Srinivasan said.

"Our algorithmic IP can utilise the parallelism of the HiveFlex VSP cores to the maximum, allowing us to develop fully programmable video solutions that do not exist today."

HiveFlex processors address the high performance needs of video applications. The data level parallelism, instruction level parallelism and task level parallelism allow building optimal solutions.

Commenting on the launch of India operations, Silicon Hive director Ramanathan Sethuraman said the company would engage partners worldwide in communications signal processing, image signal processing, and video signal processing for its HiveFlex family of application specific processors.

The Bangalore office is the company's second such operation to begin functioning after the first one was set up at Milpitas in California in the United States recently.

"The objective of setting up our Bangalore operations is to support new systems and applications software partnerships in the sub-continent for our HiveFlex product lines; service multinational customers operating in the sub-continent and serve as a engineering development centre," Sethuraman said.

As part of Royal Philips Electronics NV, Silicon Hive is a worldwide supplier of semiconductor IP. The company designs, builds and licenses application-specific solutions for communications and media processing, tuned processor cores and programme development tools with application libraries.

The company's products enable semiconductor firms to make fully programmable SoCs.

AllGo offers embedded software IP and services for the consumer electronics industry worldwide by leveraging its expertise in multimedia systems and DSP algorithms.

With IC and OEM vendors as its customers for system solutions for multimedia products, the company focuses on development of audio/video algorithmic IP, reference solutions for multimedia players, networked radio and short-range wireless.
