Rapid expansion in the processing power of set-top boxes for digital TVs is expected to boost growth for Pace Micro Technology, the Yorkshire-based firm said this week.

More processing power will be required to cope with a growth in services based on the convergence of broadcasting and internet technology. The digital set-top box maker is increasing investment in R&D and software development to capitalise on this.

The company’s complement of software engineers almost doubled over the past year and is expected to double again, to 80, this year.
