Conexant CX92161 Single-Function Printer Controller

Conexant Systems launched their CX92161 system-on-chip. The CX92161 SoC is optimized for laser single-function printers (SFPs) and thermal label printers. The new Conexant IC features a 32-bit microprocessor core, embedded double data rate (DDR) synchronous dynamic random access memory (SDRAM), and enhanced printer engine direct control features. The CX92161 system-on-chip is sampling now. Volume production is scheduled for the third quarter of 2012. The CX92161 is priced at $10 each in 10K quantities.
