Press release, January 6; Steve Shen, DIGITIMES [Thursday 6 January 2011]

Ubicom, a leading networked CPU provider, and wired and wireless solution provider Ralink Technology have jointly announced general availability of turnkey reference designs for several consumer multimedia products. These turnkey reference designs combine Ubicom's networking and advanced multimedia capabilities of the IP7500 family of 32-bit processors, and Ralink's Wi-Fi expertise through its RT3070 802.11-b/g/n chipset. Ubicom and Ralink will be demonstrating these solutions at their respective suites at CES 2011.

The Ubicom-Ralink Wi-Fi DLNA audio player solution delivers consumer electronics manufacturers a turnkey hardware and software solution enabling the quickest time to market for DLNA-compliant wireless audio products, they claimed. The design is targeted at a wide range of products including AVRs, mini-micro systems, wireless audio clients, iPod docks, and wireless speakers. Ubicom's software platform is pre-certified for DLNA 1.5, UPnP and Microsoft's Windows 7 ecosystem, and the Ralink WiFi module is Wi-Fi Alliance certified for WPA, WPA2, WMM, WMM-PS and WPS.

The Ubicom-Ralink Internet Audio Player Reference Design enables customers to rapidly add streaming audio capability to existing products or develop tabletop internet radio products. Thousands of radio stations and internet-based music services such as Pandora, Shoutcast and Aupeo are accessible through the reference design, they said. Multimedia content can also be accessed automatically through the platform's DLNA media client and via local storage, and it can be combined with other media sources such as iPod, iPhone or iPad, as well as FM radio into a single product.
