CEL Now Offers THine ICs through its Distribution Channels

SANTA CLARA, CA (October 24, 2018) and TOKYO (October 25, 2018)

THine Electronics, Inc. (Tokyo Stock Exchange/JASDAQ: 6769), a semiconductor company focusing on high speed serial interfaces and image signal processing, and California Eastern Laboratories, Inc. (“CEL”) the strategic sales and technical support partner of THine for Americas, today announced the availability of THine ICs through CEL’s distribution partners.

CEL’s distribution partners include all the major distributors in the United States such as Arrow Electronics, Avnet, Future Electronics, Digi-Key Electronics and Mouser Electronics. Through these distributors, customers will have their choice for easy fulfillment of supply of THine products with favorable terms.

CEL will continue to supply technical support as well as evaluation tools to aid customers’ design-ins of THine products, in addition to the collaboration with THine and THine Solutions, Inc. (“THine Solutions”), THine’s subsidiary in the United States.

“With the design support from CEL and the easy access of THine products through our distribution partners, customers can now make an easy decision to use THine’s world leading technologies enabling best in class performance for advanced imaging systems,” said Marc Sheade, VP & GM of CEL’s Component Business.

THine is a global leading Japanese Company focused on providing solutions for high resolution advanced image systems that are becoming more and more prevalent in today’s commercial and consumer electronic systems. THine recently established THine Solutions to accelerate its marketing and product defining activities in the United States.

THine’s products include Serializer and Deserializer ICs deploying LVDS and V-by-One® HS industry standards. The LVDS standard is a differential signaling standard also known as TIA/EIA-644. The V-by-One® HS standard is a differential signaling standard developed by THine that operates at higher speeds than LVDS. It allows a high-resolution video signal to be transmitted and received through a reduced number of lanes than LVDS using inexpensive cables. Thus, V-by-One® HS enables a simplified video system design at a reduced system cost.

In addition to Serializer and Deserializer ICs, the THine product line includes Image Signal Processor ICs supporting camera systems of 16M pixel resolution and Repeater ICs which reform a high-speed signal to improve its signal quality and enable gigabit serial signal transmission, such as USB3.1 Gen2, PCI Express Gen2, SATA Gen2, over longer cables. Other products from THine include Timing Controller ICs, LED Driver ICs, Motor Driver ICs, Power Management ICs, and Video ADC ICs.

Applications for THine products include wearable devices for XR (AR/VR/MR), smartphones, tablet-type and lap-top computers, surveillance cameras, 4K TVs, digital signage displays, machine vision, multi-function printers, medical equipment, data center equipment, and automotive devices.

“THine has delivered our world-leading advanced products of high-speed interface and image signal processing for customers in industrial, automotive, and consumer application markets. Thanks to CEL’s high-profile distribution partners, it is now easier than ever to design with our high performance products. We look forward to developing our solutions that help our customers push the limit of application scalability as well as time to market,” said Satoshi Maekawa, Sales Department Director of THine.
