Partnership to produce system-on-chip (SoC) solutions that will expand Teradici PCoIP technology into new devices, markets, and use cases SUNNYVALE, Calif., Nov. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Socionext Inc., an emerging leader in advanced system-on-chip (SoC) technology for video and imaging systems, and Teradici, creator of industry-leading PCoIP® technology for secure virtual workspaces, today announced a strategic partnership to provide silicon to power a new family of PCoIP endpoints for the cloud.
"When it came time to move our industry-leading PCoIP technology forward, partnering with Socionext was a natural fit," said Dan Cordingley, CEO of Teradici. "Socionext's expertise in delivering specialized, highly integrated SoC solutions has opened doors that will enable us to bring the power and benefits of PCoIP technology to entirely new markets and use cases." "Teradici with its PCoIP technology is the recognized leader in the market for delivering secure virtual desktops, workstations, workspaces, and applications," said Koichi Yamashita, Senior Vice President, IoT and Graphics Solution Business Unit at Socionext. "We're excited to be able to provide our powerful capabilities for the cloud by introducing Teradici PCoIP technology into our SoC solutions." The first goal of the partnership will be an expansion of Teradici's PCoIP Zero Client family of ultra-secure hardware endpoints for virtual and cloud environments. The new Socionext SC1110 SoC, also known as "PXiV", will be used in the new Alta PCoIP Zero Client alongside the well-established Tera2 PCoIP Zero Client line, of which more than 3 million units have shipped. PCoIP Zero Clients are hardware-based endpoints that use a highly integrated, purpose-built processor to perform image decompression and decoding, so pixels are transmitted instead of data. By integrating the PCoIP hardware decoder with modern SoC technology, Teradici and Socionext aim to empower OEMs to embed PCoIP technology in a range of devices beyond the traditional desktop form factors.
