GENEVA -- Abilis Systems, a Kudelski Group (SWX:KUD) company, announced today its intention of becoming a major player of the next generation chips for the mobile digital TV market with the availability of samples of its reprogrammable OFDM demodulator. This revolutionary solution is part of global receiver architecture - from antenna to digital TV bit stream - designed specifically for mobile devices, such as cell phones, PDA or laptops or portable media players. This major milestone is the final step leading to the introduction of the world’s first multi-standard, programmable Mobile TV single-chip solution offering the power, size and cost advantages of a leading edge 90nm RFCMOS manufacturing process.

The OFDM demodulator is based on a scalable, multi-core architecture dedicated to mobile applications, offering a unique combination of DSP programming flexibility and power efficiency of hardware accelerators. The architecture of the demodulator supports the various and emerging OFDM standards for Digital Mobile TV and broadband communication such as WiFi and WiMAX. An innovative and global approach to OFDM signal demodulation has enabled Abilis Systems to support the emerging multi-mode mobile terminal and the convergence of wireless communication and multimedia functionality.

“The potential of our programmable demodulator technology is tremendous and these samples clearly demonstrate the performance of our reprogrammable solution. We now have a solid foundation to build a large product family to support this important and growing market which will exceed the 100 million users barrier by 2009” said Yves Mathys, Abilis Systems CEO. “With the strategic support of the Kudelski Group, we are developing the technical and commercial synergies with the world leader of conditional access systems to offer highly secure and full-featured solutions to mobile operators. “
