Wi-Fi Photo Frame with Internet Radio

Tue, 03/11/2008 - 7:29am
CSR and Telechips have partnered on a design for a Wi-Fi photo frame with internet radio. The Wi-Fi enabled digital photo frame platform features wireless connectivity using CSR's UniFi single-chip Wi-Fi technology. UniFi will provide users with the capability to send their favorite photos directly to an 8 inches LCD display and also to connect via Wi-Fi access points to provide wireless streaming of internet radio. The platform will drastically reduce the time to market for ODMs and will be available by the end of January 2008.

Based on CSR's UniFi and the TCC8300 media processor from Telechips, the platform runs on the most common operating system for multimedia devices, making it easy for customers to integrate and use. CSR's UniFi is a low-power Wi-Fi solution that features an exceptionally small chip scale package (CSP) that measures 5.8 × 6.4 mm.

Telechip's platform will use CSR'S UniFi to allow users to stream internet radio via Wi-Fi and will support music subscription services such as Rhapsody, ShoutCast, WM Audio and vTuner, providing access to thousands of songs via live broadcast or on demand access. Users will be able to display images saved on their memory card or communicate via Wi-Fi with Flickr and other photo sharing websites such as Picasa to view online photo albums. The platform will also support RSS feeds from sources including Yahoo, MSN, CNN, BBC as well as displaying currency rates and traffic information.
