Cavium Inc., a provider of semiconductor products that enable intelligent processing for networking, communications and digital home applications, has joined with Qualcomm to offer a mobile adapter solution based on the industry’s emerging Wi-Fi Display standard (now known as Miracast) and designed to provide better peer-to-peer connections with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon platform.
As a result of the collaboration, major smartphone and tablet manufacturers will have access to a standards-plus wireless display reference solution capable of robust and high-quality video transmissions with simultaneous, full interactivity achieved through optimized video compression and transmission latency, the companies said.
“We are very excited about this collaboration with Qualcomm to address the emerging wireless display market,” said Rajiv Khemani, Cavium’s chief operating officer. “Cavium’s PureVu Media SoC has already been selected by several major smartphone [maker] for their wireless display products due to superior features and low latency. This collaboration taps the expertise of both companies to further facilitate the adoption of the new Miracast standard within the mobile industry, and to enable [manufacturers] to deliver differentiated products within an accelerated timeline.”
