BEIJING — AltoBeam, a developer of advanced DTV demodulators, today announced that it has successfully closed a 6 million US dollars round of Series C funding, led by US Venture Partners (USVP). Subsequently, Irwin Federman and David Liddle, partners of USVP and veterans in the semiconductor industry and investment community, joined AltoBeam’s Board of Directors. AltoBeam’s long-term investors, DFJ DragonFund, Tano Capital, and PYJ-Dynasty Venture Fund, also participated in the round.
