SAN JOSE, Calif.

Mixel®, the leader in mobile mixed-signal intellectual property (IP), announced today that Anapass, Inc. (Seoul, South Korea), a leading supplier of display processors, has successfully integrated Mixel’s complete MIPI® solution into its recently announced ANA38401, a display panel timing controller (TCON). The ANA38401 integrates Mixel’s high-performance, low-power Rx D-PHYSM implemented in TSMC 40nm process.

“To succeed in Anapass’s competitive market segment, our product has to be best-in-class. To achieve this, all the IP that we integrate into our product need to meet that same standard. We selected Mixel to be our MIPI supplier because of their differentiated MIPI solution and their silicon-proven track-record,” said Dr. CG Kim, Anapass’s VP of Engineering. “We found Mixel’s support to be outstanding. The Mixel team consistently went out of their way to support us throughout the development cycle and continues to support us as we go through production ramp-up”, he added.

“We are delighted to add Anapass to our large and expanding list of MIPI licensees that have achieved first-time success with our silicon-proven IP. It is particularly fulfilling to reach our mutual goal: high-volume production,” said Ashraf Takla, Mixel’s President and CEO.

Mixel will be demonstrating many of its own, as well as its customers’ products, at the MIPI Open & Demo Day in Taipei, Taiwan, October 29th.
