Worlds First 45nm Single-Chip Digital TV Platform now Supports the Industry’s Leading User Interface Development Kit

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Trident Microsystems, Inc. (Nasdaq: TRID), a leader in high-performance semiconductor system solutions for the connected home, today announced that it has integrated Nokia’s leading Qt cross platform application and user interface (UI) framework into its 45nm PNX847x/8x/9 family of reference designs. By integrating Qt, Trident can enable its customers to quickly and easily develop advanced web-enabled applications and deploy these applications seamlessly across desktop, mobile and embedded operating systems without having to rewrite the source code.

“Qt is quickly becoming a standard in the industry and among the top specifications we receive from our customer base,” said Christos Lagomichos, president of Trident. “By incorporating the Qt framework into our reference designs, we can save customers an enormous amount of development time and make it easy to develop feature-rich user interfaces that can be used across many different product lines.”

Trident will be demonstrating the PNX847x/8x/9 with Nokia Qt reference designs at the China Content Broadcasting Network (CCBN) Conference in Beijing, China on March 23-25, 2010. China has become one of the world’s fastest growing regions to download Nokia’s Qt framework due to factors such as the country’s aggressive next generation broadband (NGB) initiative. Trident is pleased to be working with Nokia to provide China STB manufacturers with integrated Qt capabilities that reduce their development times and speed their time to market.

Availability

The PNX847x/8x/9 family of reference designs that incorporate the Qt framework is available today for Trident customers.
