Realtek Semiconductor Corp. announced that AMD has chosen its RTL8110S-32 LAN on Motherboard 10/100/1000M Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) controller and ALC203 2 channel audio IC for the AMD Geode GX Thin Client reference design kit (RDK).

The Realtek RTL8110S-32 combines a triple-speed IEEE 802.3-compliant MAC with a triple-speed Ethernet transceiver, a PCI bus controller, and embedded memory. On-chip cable testing technology allows a device equipped with an RTL8110S-32 to detect and report cabling problems; reducing expensive support issues and improving device uptime. A comprehensive driver set gives the RTL8110S 32 the flexibility to be used in a wide range of OS environments.

On the other hand, the ALC203 audio IC is a 20-bit DAC and 18-bit ADC full-duplex AC'97 2.3 compatible stereo audio codec designed for PC multimedia systems, including host/soft audio, and AMR/CNR based designs. The ALC203 incorporates proprietary converter technology to achieve a high SNR (greater than 100dB), sensing logics for device reporting and a Universal Audio Jack for improved user convenience. The ALC203 AC'97 codec supports multiple codec extensions and independent variable sampling rates. It provides two pairs of stereo outputs with independent volume controls, a mono output, multiple stereo and mono inputs, along with flexible mixing, gain, and mute functions to offer a complete integrated audio solution for PCs.
