SAN JOSE: Tripath Technology Inc. (Nasdaq:TRPH), creators of Digital Power Processing, announced Friday that its Class-T(TM) advanced 1-bit digital audio amplifiers will power Hitachi's new plasma and LCD (liquid crystal display) television lines.

Tripath's Class-T TA2020 digital audio amplifier, producing 20W stereo sound, is featured in Hitachi's latest W32-PDH3000, plasma TV and 10 others models with variations in sizes (32-inch, 37-inch, 42-inch, and 50-inch) and tuner (VHF/UHF, BS, and internet connectable). In addition to the plasma TV line, Hitachi has also designed Tripath's Class-T TA2024 digital audio amplifier into their latest W20-LC3000, 20-inch LCD TV. Both the plasma and LCD TV lines are in production and shipping in volume. Tripath's patented signal processing techniques are combined with a switching mode approach that generates high fidelity sound with significantly lower heat dissipation making it ideal for compact design applications such as flat panel displays and televisions.

Tripath's Class-T(TM) 1-bit digital audio amplifiers are also currently integrated in other flat panel display products of Aiwa, Fujitsu, Samsung, Sanyo, Sony, Sharp and Toshiba. Through space-saving technology, low heat dissipation, and high-energy efficiency, Tripath is quickly becoming the technology of choice in the rapidly growing LCD and plasma display markets.

"We are pleased that one of the premier leaders in the flat panel television market has adopted our Class-T technology," said Dr. Adya Tripathi, Chairman, President and CEO for Tripath. "We will continue to work with Hitachi to create the latest cutting-edge products for the consumer electronics enthusiast."
