Coresonic, sold for SEK 240 Millions, is set to become a wholly owned subsidiary of Taiwanese firm MediaTek.
Coresonic develops new, simple and low-power architecture for digital signal processors, the core of all digital communication. As you know Coresonic was founded in 2004 by four researchers at the Department of E E (ISY), three from our group.
Professor Dake Liu
Professor Christer Svensson
Dake Liu, Anders Nilsson and Eric Tell are still actively involved in the company, while Christer Svensson has retired.
Investment company, Industrifonden, invested in the company in 2007, which made it possible to commercialise their research results. In 2010 SEB Venture Capital became a company member. The venture capital companies have now sold Coresonic to Gaintech Co, a wholly owned subsidiary of Taiwanese semiconductor company MediaTek, for USD 35 million, the equivalent of SEK 240 million.
For the past year MediaTek has licensed Coresonic’s architecture for use in baseband applications for wireless communication. They are now taking over ownership but maintain that the technology will still be developed in Linköping.
“The sale presents major advantages for both parties. Now we have the opportunity to increase our pace and introduce new wireless products via MediaTek’s global network,” said Coresonic CEO Johan Lodenius in a press release.The original article is to be found in: LiU News
For the fourth year, IGI Global is recognizing some of the top researchers in the field. The annual ‘Excellence in Research Journal Awards’ honors innovative research and outstanding scholarship within IGI Global’s prestigious journal collection.
Based on their involvement in the International Journal of Embedded and Real-Time Communication Systems (IJERTCS) some members and former members of our divison received this award.

On Friday, November 26, Per Karlström presented his thesis: NoGAP: Novel Generator of Accelerators and Processors
Opponent: Professor Doktor Peter Marwedel, TU Dortmund, Germany
Two new Ph. D. students, Andreas Karlsson and Magnus Pettersson, have joined the division.
On Thursday May 20th, Rizwan Asghar presented his doctoral thesis Flexible Interleaving Sub-systems for FEC in Baseband Processors
Opponent: Professor Joseph Cavallaro, Dept.of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Rice University, Texas, USA
Di Wu, Ph.D November 2009 in the division of Computer Engineering, has in April 2010 received this award by the Chinese Scholarship Council. These awards goe to Chinese students who are pursuing their PhD's study abroad in an outstanding way without receiving finance sponsorship from Chinese government. The evaluation is based on the number publications, their impact and whether it is a cutting-edge research area.
Eric Tell and Anders Nilsson, Coresonic, both with their Ph.D.degrees from the division of Computer Engingeering, were nomineted to the "Chester Carlsons Research Award". Erik Tell and Anders Nilsson were nominated not only for their technical developments but also for being entrepreneurs and for having started a company in order to exploit their ideas.
