Peritek Partners with Silicon Motion to Bring Advanced Graphics to the Embedded Market

12/3/2002 - Peritek Corporation, a leading vendor of standards-based video and graphics display control boards for the embedded computing industry, and Silicon Motion, a leading manufacturer of low-power mobile solution chips announced that the two companies will work in partnership to bring advanced and affordable 128-bit 2D/3D graphics technology to the embedded board market.

"Silicon Motion and Peritek have raised the standard on entry-level embedded graphics for VME and CompactPCI systems," said Victor Gold, president of Peritek. "Now there's no reason for system designers to settle for last generation 64-bit graphics; Silicon Motion's SM731 technology affordably delivers state-of-the-art 128-bit 3D performance."

Peritek plans to use Silicon Motion's high performance, low power display controller chips on PMC (PCI Mezzanine Card) graphics board designs. The first of these new designs, the Tropos/PMC, based on Silicon Motion's SM731 graphics engine, was announced.

“Silicon Motion continues to deliver display products that combines low-power consumption with balanced performance,” said Wallace Kou, President and CEO of Silicon Motion, "This announcement is a significant step in Silicon Motion’s commitment to support the embedded market.”

The SM731 is a 128-bit 2D/3D mobile display controller with integrated LVDS transmitters, dual-digital panel interface, and designed for systems requiring low-power such as Tablet PCs, Car Information Systems, Point-of-Sale terminals, Kiosks, and various embedded applications. The SM731 also offers DualMonTM technology, which allows several applications to operate simultaneously across two independent display devices – all from a single chip.

Peritek Corporation is a leading vendor of standards-based video and graphics display control boards for the embedded computing industry. Peritek’s line of high performance display controllers for PMC, VME, PCI and CompactPCI architectures support industry-leading real time operating systems, Solaris, Linux, and Windows software. In 2000, Peritek acquired Megatek Graphics, and in 2001, acquired Raster Graphics, establishing Peritek as the only graphics technology vendor to support all leading embedded hardware platforms and operating systems.
