Embedded network security
i3 micro technology today announced that it selected the AMD Alchemy Au1550 processor to help accelerate networking capabilities within its third-generation Mood Box (MMB3) set-top box solution. The MMB3 multimedia TV gateway with loadable codecs will give service providers unmatched flexibility in network connectivity, in-home distribution and decoding technology.
The increased capabilities of the MMB3 require high-performance processing and versatile network security technology. The AMD Alchemy Au1550 processor is a low-power, high-performance, highly integrated system on a chip (SOC) that implements security directly into the hardware thus reducing software overhead. The MIPS-based processor enables the MMB3 to run enhanced, high-performance applications at low wattage.
