Sales are expected to reach 1.5 - 2 mln chips this year and Maxscend is already in negotiations with over ten television and set-top box manufacturers.

Maxscend Technologies was founded by Xu Zhihan and other Chinese returnees. 55 of the company's 65 employees are engaged in R&D. The company landed USD 4 mln in VC funding from Sequoia Capital and plans to list in 2009 or 2010.
