Fujitsu Microelectronics and Scalado Partner on Products

LUND, Sweden -- Fujitsu Microelectronics Ltd. has signed a contract with Scalado to licence and integrate Scalado SpeedTags technology into future mobile image signal processor (ISP), which makes better image quality called Milbeaut designs, featuring high megapixels. Scalado's technology will be included in the ISP to help manage the larger files produced by the high-resolution image sensors, thereby improving overall JPEG image handling significantly. The ISP using the new technology will be used in mobile devices, such as camera phones and PDAs, as well as in digital still cameras. Scalado products currently exist in more than 300 million mobile devices.

"This is a very important deal, which will undoubtedly lead to superior performance and features, mainly in camera phones, increasing Scalado's mobile market penetration and will also help introduce Scalado to the digital still camera industry, where Fujitsu Microelectronics Ltd. has a strong presence. It is significant that Scalado is the first choice for still imaging from leading players throughout the entire imaging value chain," says Fadi Abbas, Co-Founder and Vice President of Business Development and Partnerships at Scalado. "The combination enables outstanding results, including zero shutter lag, burst mode, astonishing auto panorama capturing, and other refined features."

Implementation of SpeedTags in the camera chip will support the use of Scalado's CAPS imaging suite, a powerful solution focused on providing enhanced functionality to camera phones. As a result, users can expect increased performance and data-handling capabilities for high-resolution files that will dramatically improve the experience of viewing images on a mobile device.

"With the benefits of Scalado's mobile imaging technologies, Fujitsu Microelectronics Ltd. will be able to respond to some of the critical challenges set by the constantly increasing resolution sizes and megapixels of images," said Tom Miyake, General Manager of Imaging System Solution Division from Fujitsu Microelectronics. "Moreover we have confidence that our ISP Milbeut will have a stronger presence in the camera phones market and, together with Scalado, we are looking to take the end-user experience to a new level in camera phones and other markets."
