Silicon Image  (NASDAQ: SIMG), a leading provider of HD connectivity
solutions, today announced that its reference design collaboration with
MediaTek has resulted in seven new design wins for MHL^®-enabled smartphone
models. The reference design, based on MediaTek’s Quad-Core MT6589 smartphone
platform and Silicon Image’s SiI8338 MHL transmitter with Media Data Tunneling
(MDT) technology, delivers a premium smartphone experience at competitive
price points. Consumers can turn their MHL-enabled smartphones into
ultra-portable PCs or multi-media entertainment devices when connected to
MHL-enabled computing accessories or large displays.

“The MediaTek platform combined with Silicon Image’s MHL transmitter paves the
way for a variety of powerful, yet economical MHL-enabled smartphones that
lets consumers experience the ‘plug and play’ benefits of MHL technology,”
said David Kuo, senior marketing director at Silicon Image. “To be able to
transform your smartphone into a productivity workstation, gaming console or
entertainment hub, while keeping the device at a competitive price point, is
truly enriching the mobile HD experience.”

The seven new MHL smartphone designs based on the MediaTek smartphone
reference platforms include models from various companies based in China and
India.
