Sharp Microelectronics of the Americas announces that MonRoi has selected Sharp's System Solution for the new MonRoi portable chess manager.

Comprised of hardware, software and technical support, this comprehensive set of resources enabled MonRoi to create a power-efficient, easy-to-use portable device with a high performance value, reduced bill of materials, and streamlined design cycle, Sharp said.

Sharp's System Solution for MonRoi includes a component platform with Sharp's SoC, LCD and flash memory. Drawing on Sharp's library of software tools and its collaboration with Sharp engineers, said the press release, MonRoi's designers realized the full benefits of Sharp's hardware components, including the ARM7-based 16/32-bit LH75411 SoC, part of Sharp's BlueStreak family of SoCs.

In addition, the 16bit/32bit LH75411 SoC provides a strategic balance of flexibility, performance and integration. Together with Sharp's 3.5-inch QVGA Advanced-TFT color LCD and the 16Mbit flash memory component, the System Solution promises a unique integration advantage over similar stand-alone components.

The MonRoi device is a portable wireless personal chess manager for professional tournament players. With 4Mbytes of memory, it supports more than 50 chess games, minimum 10 hours of run time, and is able to record chess games tamper free. Professional players can review games instantly, broadcast each move during tournaments, and upload and download games from a PC.
