Royal Philips Electronics and Intersil Corp. have collaborated to develop a reference design for DVD+RW/+R (DVD+ReWriteable/+Recordable) drives - a compatible, rewritable DVD format developed by the DVD+RW Alliance. The design will be based on a laser driver IC by Intersil and Philips' encoder and decoder semiconductors and firmware (software).

According to Philips, DVD recorders based on this reference design will enable consumers to create 4.7Gb video or data DVDs in less than 15 minutes, twice the speed of existing DVD recorders. Typical applications include producing home video and photo album DVDs, and PC data backup and archiving. A DVD+RW/+R data drive will also allow consumers to store up to an equivalent of seven data CDs on a single disc.

Philips plans to offer the DVD+RW/+R reference design based on the Intersil laser driver in early 2003.
