Amphus delivers Vadem VG330 singlechip PC device

VG-330, System-On-A-Chip Device

The VG-330 is a 32MHz single-chip platform which provides OEMs with a highly battery-efficient means to develop cost sensitive, DOS-based, handheld electronic products. VG-330 offers fastest time to market with available DOS based GUI solutions.   Potential applications for VG-330 are smartphones, display phones, low cost internet access devices, organizers, handheld POS terminals, GPS terminals, and other price sensitive consumer products.   The chip contains a CPU, all standard PC peripherals, additional high-value peripherals and a 16 bit AT style expansion bus.   Its integrated video architecture shows very fast video performance. Extensive and proven power management is also standard.

The VG-330 contains the latest NEC V30MX processor and also embodies a standard PC architecture combined with hardware and software features for rapid design of products with extensive ROM-based software.   PC Card 2.1; ExCA PC Cards are fully supported.   The VG-330 single-chip PC platform is a single 160-pin CMOS chip handling all PC functions including 16-bit CPU, LCD controller, keyboard scanner and PC Card controller.   All that is required for a basic system is the VG-330, memory, power supply, display and associated packaging.
