Power management IC supplier O2Micro International Ltd has been granted 35 claims under U.S. patent number 7,359,998 for its Low-Power Audio CD Player invention; a continuation of the invention issued October 2006 under U.S. patent number 7,130,930.

Using the patented design, end-users can enjoy long hours of audio CD entertainment, without turning on the notebook power. It allows audio CD play without providing power to the notebook CPU and LCD, thereby extending battery life.

"This patent award is an extension of O2Micro's portfolio of core power management inventions and associated system level claims," said Max Huang, executive VP, O2Micro.
