|Home Made HD-TV Chip|
Hisense, a Chinese television maker, recently rolled out a high-definition television chip that has passed the verification check organized by the Ministry of Information Industry. The new system, named Hiview, makes China's first proprietary commercial chip for audio-video applications. Using internationally advanced 0.18-micron CMOS process, the system is made up of nearly 2 million logic gates and some 7 million transistors. As a super integrated circuit at a million-gate level, Hiview has obtained more than 30 patent grants, of which 9 are invention patents. Having found successful applications in TV manufacturing, the new product is certified for market entry.
