These new products -- the DL-125, DL-165 and DL-195 -- make it possible to easily
connect additional monitors using USB 2.0-connected docking stations, monitors,
mini-monitors, projectors, and adapters. The new silicon and software solution
provides a high level of integration for USB graphics devices, supports higher
HD display resolutions, and has software and hardware advances that increase
overall performance for smoother video playback and interactivity over previous
DisplayLink DL-100 series products.
"Thanks to SMIC's full range of services and support, we can have commercial
production ramp-up in high volume to meet the rapidly growing market's demand
together with an ideal cost-performance ratio," said DisplayLink's Dennis
Crespo, executive vice president of marketing and business development. "As
our business continues to expand, we anticipate our collaboration with SMIC
will continue to strengthen."
"SMIC is honored to provide foundry services to DisplayLink, whose rapid
development exemplifies the overall growth of the niche consumer electronics
fabless design industry," said Chiou-Feng Chen, Vice President of Marketing
and Sales. "By combining SMIC's manufacturing expertise with DisplayLink's
system and design capabilities, we are able to better serve customers by achieving
high standards in quality and cost-performance ratio."
The new technology is already deployed in Samsung's new SyncMaster LapFit
LD190G and LD220G USB companion monitors and the Lenovo USB-to-DVI Monitor Adapter.
