Telechips Partners With Sansa for Security

08 January 2015

At the 2015 International Consumer Electronics Show, Telechips Inc. signed an agreement with Sansa Security to enable digital rights management (DRM) for Telechip’s 3D accelerator and video processor ICs.

The Hexa-core based TCC896xx chipset that will be integrated into the Telechips’s Smart Stick will initially be incorporated into service provider set-top boxes (STBs) and eventually migrate to additional over-the-top (OTT) STB offerings, Telechips said. The integration of DRM into the chipset will allow the Smart Stick to have trusted execution environment (TEE) technology that will comply with Hollywood studio standards, the company said.

Andrew Lee, director of marketing at Telechips, said in a statement the chipset was designed to work with applications from device manufacturers and service providers that “require content protection that is studio-approved” but that can be ported across “multiple business models and new use cases.” Lee said the agreement with Sansa will allow the chipsets to meet those requirements and with the accompanying reference design ensure “cost savings and a fast time to market.”
