Tilera Corporation Joins China's Wireless TD Forum as a Senior Member

Tilera sponsors the International TD-SCDMA & TD-LTE Summit 2009 in Beijing, China

BEIJING, China - May 26, 2009 - Tilera® Corporation developer of the breakthrough Tile™ family of high-performance processors for the embedded market today announced it has joined the TD Forum as a senior member and will sponsor the International TD-SCDMA & TD-LTE Summit 2009 on May 26th and 27th 2009, in Beijing. As one of the key sponsors, Tilera will deliver a speech on how Tilera's multi-core technology will contribute to Chinese 3G deployment and will demonstrate leading edge solutions for advanced wireless communications.

2009 is the starting point for the 3G wireless era in China, and will potentially lead to a new upturn for the global telecom market. The International TD-SCDMA & TD-LTE Summit 2009, organized by the TD-Forum in association with China Mobile, will deliver a strong boost to the TD-SCDMA industry as well as to lay a solid foundation for TD-SCDMA with evolution towards TD-LTE.

As China formally introduces 3G services to end users, one of the key challenges to the carriers and telecom equipment providers is how to transmit video, data and voice at faster rates with much less power. Tilera's advanced multi-core technology can provide significant value to address those challenges. With 64 cores in a single chip interconnected with the revolutionary iMesh™ architecture, the Tile Processor provides immense compute horsepower that is at least 3 times "greener" than competitive solutions. Furthermore, its developer-friendly software environment supporting C/C++ and SMP Linux enables engineers to quickly develop sophisticated wireless applications.

“China is moving very quickly into the era of 3G wireless and beyond and TD-SCDMA & TD-LTE will drive demand for higher performance and greener technologies,” said Dr. Wang Jing, Secretary-General of the TD Forum. “Tilera's revolutionary iMesh architecture provides an unprecedented combination of performance, power efficiency and programming flexibility and we believe it can contribute tremendous value to the future of TD-SCDMA and TD-LTE.”

“Tilera is honored to join the TD Forum as a senior member and sponsor of the International TD-SCDMA & TD-LTE Summit 2009,” said Michael Wu, Managing Director of Tilera Corporation for Asia Pacific. “Tilera commits to focus on the China market and is looking forward to working with the key players of TD-SCDMA and TD-LTE for market-leading solutions.”

At the summit, Tilera will provide video demonstrations for Media Gateway applications, packet processing for GGSN, PDSN and also show its wireless OFDM processing capabilities.

About the TD Forum
The TD Forum's predecessor was the TD-SCDMA Forum, established in the Great Hall of the People on December 12, 2000. Among the Co-founders of the Forum were China Mobile, China Telecom, China Unicom, Datang, Huawei, Motorola, Nortel and Siemens. With the support from Chinese government, our members, international telecom organizations and research institutions, TD Forum is the government endorsed organizer of the yearly China TD-SCDMA International Summit, the highest level TD-SCDMA conference globally. The Forum was admitted by the 3GPP as its MRP (Market Representative Partner) in 2005. The Forum also has signed partnership agreements with major international telecom organizations, such as GSMA and CDG. The Forum now has over 400 members from more than 30 countries covering all sectors of the value chain, including standardization agents, operators, vendors, content providers, financial and investment organizations, and research institutions. The honorable chairman of the Forum is Mr. Zhou Guangzhao, former vice president of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress. President of the Forum is Mr. Zhou Huan, former president of Datang Telecom Group and head of China Academy of Telecom Research (CATR). In January 2009, the TD-SCDMA Forum was renamed as the TD Forum.
