Celestial Semiconductor, Inc. is a Beijing, China-based fabless semiconductor company which provides System-On-Chip (SOC) solutions mainly for set-top boxes used on televisions.


The company was founded in late 2004 in Silicon Valley, California. It has offices in Beijing and Shenzhen, all in China.[1] In January 2011, the firm was purchased by Mountain View-based Cavium Networks in a $55 million transaction.[2]

Cavium Networks, the purchaser, is another fabless semiconductor company headquartered in Mountain View, California and with design teams also in Massachusetts, India, China and Taiwan.[3]


Celestial Semiconductor's ARM-based chipsets are used on two out of the three different set-top boxes used in the deployment of digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) in Argentina, using the ISDB-Tb standard.[citation needed]
