Published on July 27, 2009 at 6:14 AM

Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corporation ("SMIC"; NYSE: SMI; SEHK: 0981.HK) today announced the successful commercial production of a 130nm family of DisplayLink USB graphics chips designed by DisplayLink and manufactured at SMIC.

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.
