Santa Clara, Calif. -- CrestaTech, a Santa Clara-based developer of "smart tuners" for TV and mobile devices, said on Monday it has raised $13 million in a round of funding co-led by Bechtolsheim Ventures, Benhamou Global Ventures, Sofinnova Ventures and AVM Capital. The company said the funding will help it release several new products this year. Originally marketed under the Xceive brand, CrestaTech's architecture features an RF tuner and a programmable digital signal processor (DSP). Several flat panel TV makers now use the technology, which enables region-free TV reception on any device. CrestaTech said its chips and software will soon be found in a variety of mobile devices, including notebooks, tablets, smartphones and media players. "Our products enable a single global platform for the TV of the future that is adaptable to support the cloud services, applications and feature sets found in mobile devices," said CEO George Haber.
