AMD has announced that its Alchemy Au1200 processor powers Digital Cube's latest personal media players (PMPs)—the i-Station V43, i-Station V43 Navi and the SK C&C Air series. Designed for portable entertainment devices, the Alchemy Au1200 processor promises a generation of conveniences and features, including scalable DVD-quality displays, long-lasting battery life and effortless video content transfer.

"The integration of the AMD Alchemy Au1200 processor in Digital Cube's latest PMPs provides consumers with living-room quality video entertainment on the go," said Yeonsik Yu, R&D Director at Digital Cube. "By combining AMD's expertise in embedded processing with Digital Cube's leadership in developing innovative portable media devices, users will be hard pressed to find a more engaging portable media experience."

The Alchemy Au1200 processor is designed to support industry-standard media formats, including MPEG1/2, MPEG4, WMV9, H.263 and DivX at full D1 resolution (720 x 480). By supporting WMV9 playback, Digital Cube users can watch animated lectures, play MP3 files, and view Adobe and Microsoft documents, all while accessing GPS functionality. Additionally, the SK C&C Air series' added support of satellite DMB helps users capitalize on high quality satellite broadcasts while on the move.

The Digital Cube i-Station V43 series, i-Station V43 Navi series and the SK C&C Air series portable media players with the Alchemy Au1200 processor are already available in select regions.
