Semiconductor Announce Partnership for Development of Companion
Analog Integrated Circuits
Kiwi Semiconductor's companion integrated analog IC's will be
optimized for use with Pixim's digital imaging systems aimed at
security camera applications
Sunnyvale, Calif., January 28, 2010 - Kiwi Semiconductor Ltd., a
developer of companion analog chip solutions, and Pixim Inc., a
leading provider of imaging technology for enterprise security
cameras, today announced a partnership to develop IC solutions
for digital imaging systems aimed at security camera
Pioneering the concept of companion IC development, Kiwi
Semiconductor integrates the analog functionality of an embedded
system into a single chip, while working in close collaboration
with its partners' system engineers to ensure the best in
functionality, performance and cost.
"Our focus on developing companion chips is perfectly
highlighted by our effort with Pixim to offer higher
performance, a smaller footprint and a cost advantage to our
customers" said Luc Lussier, chief executive officer of Kiwi
Semiconductor. "By working in lock-step with Pixim's engineering
team, we are able to integrate the analog functionality into a
single chip, to help ensure customers bring more competitive
solutions to market."
"We are excited to work with Kiwi as we continually look for
ways we can help our customers improve the ease of integration,
performance and return on investment of using our solutions,"
said John Monti, vice president of marketing and business
development at Pixim, "With this type of companion chip effort,
our customers will enjoy more flexibility integrating our
solutions into their camera products."
Kiwi Semiconductor Ltd. is the Analog Companion IC CompanyTM,
focused on analog and mixed signal ASIC and ASSP product
development for the security systems, LED illumination and
wireless communications markets. Kiwi combines the singular
focus of a world-class engineering team with our partners'
application knowledge and market leadership to deliver solutions
that optimize applications by reducing cost and form factor
while increasing performance. As a result, customers and
partners are able to get to market sooner with more competitive
products. For more information, visit www.kiwisemi.com.
Pixim Inc. has developed unique imaging technology that
revolutionizes the way video cameras capture and process images.
Unlike traditional image capture technologies, where each pixel
cannot adjust to highlights and lowlights in the same scene,
Pixim's patented Digital Pixel SystemŽ technology empowers
hundreds of thousands of pixels to act like individual cameras
constantly self-adjusting. This all-digital system enables Pixim-powered
cameras to efficiently capture the whole picture, regardless of
lighting condition or application - thus securing the widest
dynamic range, natural color, and clarity, while automatically
eliminating image-compromising visual noise (e.g., glare,
reflections). The result is more than superb image quality; it
is accurate, actionable information that gives users the
strength of certainty.
Pixim chipsets are incorporated into millions of security
cameras installed in more than 100 countries worldwide. Visit

cameras. For general information, visit www.pixim.com or call
