Powered by the proprietary Smart ReadChannel technology, Acer Laboratories Inc.'s M5721 controller chipset for 20X DVD-ROM drives is claimed by the company to shorten the time users spend in adjusting data-reading quality and speed up volume productivity.

Displayed at the International IC ? China Conference and Exhibition (IIC-China), the single-chip solution also integrates an RF amplifier and servo-controller into a single chip, thereby simplifying circuit board design.

"All of the 16X DVD-ROM currently available in the market consists of two or more chipsets. By contrast, our DVD-ROM M5721 single-chip solution only needs a DRAM, a flash ROM and a power driver to function," said Dr.Chin Wu, president of ALi.

The 7th annual International IC ? China Conference and Exhibition (IIC-China) will have its second leg from April 11 to 12 in Beijing. The initial installment of the show was held in Shanghai from April 8 to 9, while the final leg will be staged in Shenzhen on April 15 and 16. IIC-China is organized by eMedia Asia Ltd, a Global Sources and CMP Media joint venture.
