Yes, well, this will not be easy to explain.
Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corporation, which we will call SMIC, is one of the leading semiconductor foundries in the world.
Shanghai High- Definition IC, which we will called HDIC, is a leading semiconductor company and developer of China’s terrestrial digital TV transmission standard.
HDIC worked with DTIC to manufacture chips (tecnhically they are demodulator chips but let us leave them as chips) based on China’s terrestrial digital TV standard.
HDIC’s high-definition series of chips, romantically called HD2812 and HD2910, were widely used by major TV set-top box manufacturers during the 2008 Olympic Games.
The chips, currently in mass production, are products of a cooperative effort between HDIC and SMIC.
HDIC provided the system design and ASIC design and SMIC contributed IPs and foundry services.
