PMIC Technology Eyes Next-Gen MID Platform

Gearing up for Intel’s next-generation Mobile Internet Device (MID) platform (codename Moorestown), NEC Electronics’ power-management IC (PMIC) technology, announced at CES 2009, combines power management, logic, a user interface, plus audio and voice communications functions to maximize battery life, support high levels of integration, and minimize board space.

Reportedly, the technology will abet the development of a new class of devices that will bring broadband wireless Internet access, multimedia playback, navigation, gaming, social networking, and other Web 2.0 applications to a wide array of mobile products.
