Maxim Integrated Products and Intel Corp. are collaborating on highly integrated power-management and multimedia solutions for Intel-based Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs). Maxim will provide mixed-signal ICs that enable longer battery life and a rich multimedia experience for consumers.
Maxim said its collaboration with Intel reflects the company’s focus on working with industry leaders to develop leading-edge technology and deliver innovative products. “Maxim is well poised to support Intel’s next-generation needs,” noted Vijay Ullal, group president for Maxim. “We have all the necessary building blocks and components to enable Intel-based MIDs to offer significantly longer battery life and provide a richer multimedia experience than available today.”
According to Pankaj Kedia, director of global ecosystem programs for Intel’s Ultra Mobility Group, “Mobile Internet devices represent an emerging and exciting growth segment that can enable consumers to enjoy the best Internet experience in their pockets. Intel’s innovation in low-power technologies, combined with Maxim’s experience and capabilities in mixed-signal design, will enable device makers to bring MIDs in ever smaller form factors with longer battery life.”
