Posted on 17-Jun-2004 08:00 | Tags Filed under: News



Some big names in mobile technology decided to joing the SDIO Now! program, by BSQUARE. The names include Panasonic, Renesas Technology Corp., and BenQ Corporation. BSQUARE's technology enables consumer electronics vendors to provide plug-and-play interoperability with a wide range of small form factor peripherals and storage devices based on SD IO standard.

Renesas Technology is using BSQUARE's SDIO technology to enable the plug-and-play support for its X-Mobile Card. "Using SDIO technology from BSQUARE, Renesas Technology can now deliver a seamless user experience for mobile e-commerce applications," said Victor Tsai, market development manager, Renesas Technology America. "The X-Mobile Card represents the integration of Renesas Technology' Smart Card and flash memory technology in the SD/MultiMediaCard form factor for support of secure eCommerce transactions."

The world's largest consumer electronics manufacturer, Panasonic, has licensed SDIO Now! for embedding into their line Windows CE-based devices. BenQ is integrating BSQUARE's SDIO technology into their next generation smartphone devices.

BSQUARE designed SDIO Now! to enable manufacturers of Microsoft Windows Mobile and Windows Powered devices to interoperate with chipsets (including Pocket PC and Smartphone), host controllers, and peripherals that are based on the popular Secure Digital (SD) and Secure Digital Input Output (SDIO) standards. The technology provides companies with a common development platform, eliminating the need for vendors to write individual drivers for each device. With a standard driver architecture and APIs, vendors can feel confident that their products will be compatible with various devices regardless of the choice of SD host controller or platform architecture.
