Winbond Electronics Corp. has announced a generation highly-integrated Windows Vista ready family of Embedded Controllers (EC) for mobile platforms, introducing SPI Flash interface to EC and system BIOS, MCE-compliant Consumer Infrared (CIR) port and Fast Infrared (FIR) port.

Designed specifically for mobile platforms, the WPC876x feature typical keyboard & mouse controller functions such as internal keyboard matrix scan & decode.

The WPC876x provide an unbeatable solution, where they and the BIOS flash occupy an extremely small space making them suitable for a very wide range of notebook form factors, including ultra-mobile PCs where board space is a critical consideration.

The WPC876x integrate a CIR module that supports remote-control capabilities, IR learning, IR emitting and System wake-up optimised for mobile PCs running Windows Vista operating system. This eliminates the need for external CIR devices, thus providing a simplified and reduced-cost solution.

All WPC876x devices utilise a high-performance 16-bit RISC processor with a 4MB external address space for easy integration of concurrent functions - a necessity in today's competitive notebook market. The WPC876x can implement the traditional keyboard & mouse functions of a standard keyboard controller, with advanced power management and battery charging functions, in parallel with other functions.

Two members of the new generation Embedded Controller family - the WPC8768 and WPC8769 - are available in a 128-pin LQFP package. For specific lead-time, pricing and additional information, please contact your local Winbond Electronics representative or distributor.
