Partnering opportunity

A Korean company offers FPGA(field programmable gate array) based high-speed & high-performance signal processing technology


A Korean SME provides real-time image processing, image, codec(coder & decoder) and digital TV signal analyzing service by applying FPGA(field-programmable gate array)-based high-speed & high-performance signal processing technology. The company has wide R&D experience in government-funded projects such as development of UHD(Ultra High Definition) 4k based integrated video routing switch. The SME is looking for partners for technical and research cooperation, as well as license agreements.

Partner sought

- Type of partner sought : Companies - Specific area of activity of the partner : Local broadcasting equipment supplier and developer - Task to be performed : Improving and developing FPGA based signal processing technology under technical cooperation and research cooperation agreement and apply the company’s technology under license agreement


The public’s demand on the video is stimulating a powerful growth of broadcasting industry. By the year 2019, it is expected that most of the countries would finish the conversion to the digital TV from the Analog TV. In addition, the need for a faster editing and transmission system would increase with the growth of HDTV(high definition television) and emergence of UHD(ultra high definition) technology. A Korean company that was established in 2010 is specialized in developing a signal processing technology for broadcasting. Recently, as the UHD broadcasting has started, the company has developed a real-time low-delay codec technology for real-time IP conversion transmission of UHD broadcasting signal. Another development is the broadcasting signal processing algorithm accelerating solution. Based on this experience and skills, the company is currently participating in a government-funded development project for UHD 4K based integrated video routing switch. and provides FPGA based high-speed and high-performance signal processing technology for UHD broadcasting. FPGA(field-programmable gate array)is an integrated circuit designed to be configured by a customer or a designer after manufacturing. An FPGA can be used to solve any problem which is computable. Its advantage lies in that it is sometimes faster for some applications because of its parallel nature and optimality in terms of the number of gates used for a certain process. The company has used FPGA for video processing application since performance and productivity is improved while reducing cost. The company is looking for partners interested in developing and improving the existing high-speed FPGA based processing technology under technical cooperation agreement and research cooperation agreement. For those who are interested to apply this technology in their video processing solution, license agreement is also open for cooperation.

Advantages and innovations

The company has the following in-house technological competences which is the underlying technology of FPGA based high-performance and high-reliability signal processing technology. This in-house technological competences are what makes the company’s FPGA based signal processing technology unique from other competitors. 1. Circuit design and related equipment production technology to transmit and process signals with the speed over 12 Gbps 2. Comprehensive analysis technology of ATSC FHD(Advanced Television System Committee Fixed-head disk) Digital Television 3. IP(internet protocol) based UHD broadcasting signal converting and routing technology - real-time & low-delay codec technology for IP transmission of UHD broadcasting signal - Provides a solution that accelerates the broadcasting signal processing algorithm for data centralization Following are the major advantages of using FPGA for video processing 1. High performance for HD processing 2. Flexibility for faster upgrading of system architecture 3. Low development fee

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
