Microchip Technology introduced their Wi-Fi Comm Demo Board. The new product features a Microchip 32-bit PIC32 microcontroller and a low-power MRF24WB0MA agency-certified, IEEE 802.11, embedded Wi-Fi radio transceiver module. The demo board makes it easy to evaluate and integrate the combination of Microchip’s Wi-Fi solutions and 32-bit MCUs in one compact and cost-effective package. Microchip’s Wi-Fi Comm Demo Board is available now for $49.
STMicroelectronics introduced the FLI7510 full high-definition (FHD) H.264/MPEG System-on-Chip (SoC) ICs for the worldwide flat-panel digital TV (DTV) market. The FLI7510 is the first member of the new family (codenamed ‘Freeman’) of performance- and software-scalable SoCs, addressing mainstream and high-end segments of the DTV market. The FLI7510 is designed to meet the increasingly stringent system-energy consumption standards for ‘green’ consumer electronics equipment. The FLI7510 SoC is now sampling to qualified customers.
