TAIPEI, Taiwan -- Inventec Appliances Corporation (IAC), a global leader in smart handheld devices and Internet appliance solutions, specializing in multimedia, broadband and wireless technology convergence, today announced it has formed strategic collaboration with Siano Mobile Silicon, a fabless manufacturer of integrated semiconductor receivers for mobile digital television (MDTV). The collaboration is targeting the integration of Siano's semiconductor MDTV receivers into multiple products, such as cell phones and other smart handheld devices.

Siano Mobile Silicon, headquartered in Israel, designs and markets semiconductor solutions for the emerging MDTV market. Its first product, the SMS1000, is now in mass production stage, and has been designed into a number of handheld devices that will be launched to market in H2/2006 and H1/2007.

"IAC views MDTV as a strategic technology and market, and we aim at integrating it into many of our future products, addressing different regions and different MDTV standards," said Michael Chen, senior vice president of IAC. "After careful analysis of the MDTV IC supplier landscape, we have selected Siano as our strategic partner, due to their superior product offering, and the great synergy between the companies," added Chen.

"The exciting collaboration with IAC opens new applications and new opportunities for Siano," said Alon Ironi, CEO, Siano. "Through the wide range of IAC's handheld products, Siano will fulfill its motto of 'enabling TV Everywhere.'" "Being selected by a leading, experienced ODM and OBM like IAC is a testimony of the advantages of Siano's SMS1000 in the highly competitive market of MDTV," added Ironi.
