Chip company ARM has signed a deal with an unnamed television company to incorporate a chipset into the chassis of a TV set.
That will eliminate the need for set-top boxes, said European business manager Peter Magowan. He added that the chipset would also handle telecommunications, enabling users to surf the Internet with a remote infrared TV stick.
Magowan claimed that, by 2000, ARM will be the biggest supplier of chip designs to the European automotive industry. He estimated that practically all the 200 million cars in western Europe will include ARM designs.
ARM is equally owned by Apple and UK-based Acorn, in which Olivetti has a stake.
