Over One Million Units of Fujitsu Semiconductor's New Low-Cost MPEG-2 Set-Top Box Chip H20D Shipped

Fujitsu Semiconductor (Shanghai) Company Limited

Shanghai, December 29, 2010

Fujitsu Semiconductor (Shanghai) Co.,Ltd. announced today that the shipment of Fujitsu's new low-cost MPEG-2 set-top box chip H20D has exceeded one million units. The product went into mass production in March 2010. This demonstrates the strong competitive edge of Fujitsu's set-top box solutions in the highly competitive, low-cost set-top box market.

The H20D chip is based on high-performance ARC architecture, and is aimed at the following markets: cable television, the basic terrestrial set-top box and the second set-top box for home use. It was built using the advanced 90nm manufacturing process, has ultra-low power consumption and was specially designed for the low-cost MPEG-2 basic set-top box. H20D supports serial Flash and SDRAM or DDR memory, and offers customers more choices in RAM memory types to fit their size and pricing criteria, allowing customers to reduce costs.

Furthermore, the H20D comes with an embedded security chip, ChipID, which can be used for cardless CA and other security applications. In addition, the chip comes with sophisticated software development support that can help customers to introduce new products to the market more quickly.

Mr. Andy Chang, Associate Vice President of Marketing, Fujitsu Semiconductor Asia, said, "We are pleased to have reached this important milestone and we also greatly appreciate the constant support of our customers. Fujitsu has always focused on innovative technologies to meet our customers’ needs while remaining committed to providing first-class service and support, evident by our strong market demand. Many manufacturers are also aware that they will benefit greatly from rolling out next-generation set-top boxes which use more cost- effective technology and have ultra-low power consumption.

Fujitsu has paid close attention to China's cable television, terrestrial television and satellite broadcasting markets, and is very optimistic about the available business opportunities. Fujitsu Semiconductor will continue to offer up-to-date solutions to meet the constantly changing demands of its customers.
