i3 micro's IP Set-Top Box Integrates AMD Alchemy Au1550 Processor


i3 micro technology today announced that it selected the AMD Alchemy(TM) Au1550(TM) processor to help accelerate networking capabilities within its third-generation Mood(TM) Box (MMB3) set-top box solution.

The MMB3 multi-media TV gateway with loadable codecs will give service providers unmatched flexibility in network connectivity, in-home distribution and decoding technology.

The increased capabilities of the MMB3 require high-performance processing and versatile network security technology. The AMD Alchemy Au1550 processor is a low-power, high-performance, highly integrated system on a chip (SOC) that implements security directly into the hardware thus reducing software overhead. The MIPS-based(TM) processor enables the MMB3 to run enhanced, high-performance applications at low wattage.

"The MMB3 is the next offering from our family of IP set-top boxes and provides operators with a unique feature set, enabling advanced video decoding for VoD and IP-TV, multiple video streams including HDTV and more," said Chris Chalkitis, Chief Technology Officer at i3. "For these multiple broadband features to operate smoothly, we needed a reliable, secure and efficient network processor that could operate seamlessly within such a demanding environment. The AMD Alchemy Au1550 processor provides all of the performance, integration and security features we need to deliver a set-top box that meets our customers' needs."

"i3 has found a way to marry technology and entertainment, enhancing both in the process," said Erik Salo, director of marketing, AMD, Personal Connectivity Solutions Group. "The relationship between AMD and i3 micro has produced an impressive product for the consumer."

Worldwide availability of the MMB3 is planned for September 2004.
