Wolfson audio and power management technology selected by Movidius for mobile 3D 
                           video and imaging platform 
 
Edinburgh, UK and Dublin, Ireland, 17 November 2010 - Wolfson Microelectronics 
plc has today announced that its industry-leading audio and power management 
technology has been selected by mobile multimedia processing specialist Movidius 
to deliver exceptional audio performance and power management to its pioneering 
Myriad 3D platform reference and development boards. 
 
Movidius has incorporated Wolfson's integrated power management subsystem, the 
WM8312, and Wolfson's low power, high quality stereo codec, the WM8987, into its 
Myriad 3D mobile development system: the latest product in Movidius' landmark 
mobile imaging and video portfolio. 
 
Movidius' Myriad 3D is the world's first platform to be optimised out-of-the-box 
to enable a 3D experience in high definition (HD) on mobile devices, allowing 
handset designers to easily produce a whole new generation of 3D-enabled 
smartphones. 
 
Part of Wolfson's successful power management portfolio, the WM8312 provides a 
highly flexible single-chip solution for low-power portable applications, and is 
specifically designed to operate as a system power management IC supporting a 
variety of industry-standard processors and accessories in a wide range of 
applications. 
 
Wolfson's WM8987 stereo codec device is designed for portable digital audio 
applications and integrates complete interfaces to stereo or mono microphones. 
External component requirements are reduced as no separate microphone or 
headphone amplifiers are required, and its advanced on-chip digital signal 
processing performs equalisation, 3D sound enhancement and automatic level 
control for the microphone or line input. 
 
Wolfson's audio and power management technology also features in reference 
designs for Movidius' first Myriad 3D product, the recently-announced MV1133. 
This silicon and software platform is capable of a range of unique 3D functions: 
the ability to preview, capture and process high quality user-generated 3D video 
and images on a mobile phone, converting any 2D video to 3D in real time, and 
upscaling and playback of content in HD. 
 
Dr Jess Brown, Product Line Manager for Power Management at Wolfson 
Microelectronics, said: "As audio becomes a key differentiator in the mobile 
space, consumers now expect the standard of audio in their multimedia devices to 
match that of the imaging and video. 
 
"We are delighted that Movidius has chosen our technology to deliver outstanding 
audio performance and power management to its latest Myriad 3D mobile and video 
imaging product." 
 
 David Moloney, CTO of Movidius said: "We selected Wolfson because of its 
reputation for providing world-class audio and power management capability. 
 
Wolfson's leading stereo device and power management subsystem, coupled with 
their globally-renowned knowledge and expertise, made them the ideal choice for 
our latest Myriad 3D reference designs."
