Markham, Ontario, Canada (April 12, 2006)–TC Applied Technologies Ltd. has concluded an agreement to license its implementation of the DTLA Digital Transmission Content Protection standard (“DTCP” or “5C”) to Freescale Semiconductor (Motorola). Freescale will be offering the 5C technology in future silicon products.
“This is a important agreement for TCAT,” said Fred Speckeen, director of business development for TC Group A/S. “Our business focus centres on digital audio, and we are surrounding the core of our DICE family of 1394 chips with complementary technologies including 5C, world-famous TC Electronic audio processing algorithms, LongFire Cat6 long-haul technology and our renowned JetPLL. Obviously, many of these supporting technologies are also useful to others as licensed IP for other applications. Such is the case with our implementation of the DTLA DTCP or “5C” standard. We are very pleased to have concluded this licensing agreement with Freescale whose DSPs are at the heart of many TC Group company products. We are very proud to announce this new partnership.”
