Silicon Vendors

Vewd products are available on all major silicon vendors
The rapidly changing OTT industry puts a tremendous strain on the entire connected device ecosystem, much of which is felt by silicon vendors owing to their close relationship to device manufacturers. The pressure to operate at expanded product margins while satisfying consumer demand for bleeding-edge technology, forces manufacturers to rely on their semiconductor partners to package up near turnkey software.

However, the business of producing quality semiconductors with rock solid supporting firmware and drivers is no easy task. Coupled with aggressive annual product cycles, silicon vendors have little to no capacity to take on the mammoth task of building and evolving global OTT technology and supporting all their customers.

Silicon vendors have found their trusted partner in Vewd. We proactively co-invest in annual development cycles, ensuring Vewd’s entire suite of OTT enabling software is readily available. This provides manufacturers with unrivaled time-to-market advantages and significantly reduces their capital expenditure.
