San Francisco, CA— Silicon Motion Inc. is showing how it supports many operating systems and CPUs by exhibiting reference platforms from AMD, Antelope, Applied Data Systems, Intel and Renesas during “ electronicaUSA with the Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) 2004”, March 29-April 1, at the Moscone Convention Center. Silicon Motion supplies multimedia storage and acceleration solutions for mobile devices.

These reference platform demos feature Silicon Motion’s SM722 and SM501 mobile display controllers, which the firm says offer the lowest-power consumption with its ReduceOn technology. ReduceOn is the intelligent power management core on which the display controllers are based. Depending on system performance requirements, the controller can algorithmically vary the clock to functional units and disable unused units. This reduces average operating power use without compromising multimedia quality or performance.

SM722 features a 128-bit 2D/3D mobile graphics engine, and 4 MB or 8 MB of internal memory. SM722 offers enhanced multi-display and hardware accelerated MPEG2/DVD playback in one footprint, Multi-Chip BGA (MCB) product, and allows design flexibility across different application platforms.

Besides a power-optimized, high-performance graphics and video acceleration engine, SM501 provides key integrated features that minimize external components and lower overall system cost. SM501 supports the SH CPU through a direct 32-bit CPU interface for maximum performance, and integrates a TV encoder interface, digital video input port that supports MPEG decoders or video capture solutions, and an integrated USB 1.1 controller. Finally, SM501 comes with integrated memory options eliminating cost and space required for external memory.
