Sigma Designs, Inc. focuses on integrated system-on-chip (SoC), solutions that serve as the foundation for consumer products, including televisions, set-top boxes, and video networking products. The company sells its products into four primary markets, which are the digital television market, the home networking market, the set-top box market, and the home control market. The company’s other products and services include technology licenses, software development kits, engineering support services for hardware and software, engineering development for customization of chipsets and other accessories. Strategy Key elements of the company’s strategy include increasing penetration in digital TV market; re-growing its leadership position in the Internet protocol streaming set-top box segment; solidifying its position in the G.hn market; expanding its position in home monitoring and control; and utilizing existing relationships. Products Media Processor SoCs The company’s media processor SoC product line consists of a range of functionally similar platforms that are based on highly integrated chips, embedded software, and hardware reference designs. These highly integrated chips include all the functions required to create a system solution with only the addition of memory. The integrated functions include applications processing, graphics processing, media processing (audio and video decoding/encoding), display processing, security management, memory control, and peripheral interfaces. The company’s embedded software suite provides an operating environment and coordinates the processing of digital video and audio content, is customizable by its customers and is interoperable with multiple standard operating systems. The company’s SoCs are configured for a specific market, either digital television or set-top box, the latter of which includes related products, such as connected media players. Home Networking Controllers The company’s home networking product line consists of wired home networking controller chipsets that are designed to provide connectivity solutions between various home entertainment products and incoming video streams. Its home networking solutions are based on the HomePNA (HPNA), HomePlug AV, and G.hn standards. HPNA and HomePlug AV are two of the technology standards used for transferring Internet protocol, content across coaxial cables, phone lines and power lines. G.hn is the next generation International Telecommunications Union (ITU) standard ratified to create a unified global standard across coaxial cables, phone lines and power lines. Products based on these technologies enable service providers, such as telecommunication carriers, cable operators and satellite providers, to deliver high definition television services (HDTV) and other media-rich applications throughout the home. Home Control The company’s home control product line consists of its wireless Z-Wave chipsets and modules. These devices enable consumers to enjoy advanced home control and energy management automation functionality, such as home security, environmental and energy control and monitoring, within both new and existing homes. These devices consist of wireless transceiver devices along with a mesh networking protocol. Its Z-Wave chipsets utilize a low-bitrate, low-power, RF communication technology that provides an interoperable home networking security, monitoring and automation solution. The company’s Z-Wave chipsets and the protocol they use to communicate commands have been built into an ecosystem of approximately 1,000 certified interoperable products, primarily intelligent appliances for use within the home. Other Products The company also offers certain legacy products that are sold into prosumer and other industrial applications. These products include its VXP brand video image processor chipsets and its video encoder chipsets. Its VXP chipsets are semiconductors that provide studio-quality video output or input for professional, prosumer and consumer applications and address applications, including audio/video receivers, broadcast studios, digital cinema, digital signage, front-projec
