HSINCHU, Taiwan –September 19, 2012 –Realtek Semiconductor Corp. (Taiwan Stock Exchange: 2379.TW), one of the world’s leading network and multimedia IC providers, announced today that the Wi-Fi Alliance has selected Realtek solutions for its Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Miracast™ Test Bed as the benchmark to ensure interoperability on future certified products. The Miracast™ certification program, based on the Wi-Fi Alliance Wi-Fi Display specification, leverages the existing Wi-Fi framework and enables wireless streaming of video and audio content seamlessly from one device (Source) to a second device (Display). Realtek’s RTL8192DE and RTD1185, along with the associated Wi-Fi chipset RTL8192DU, are among the first chipsets to achieve Miracast™ certification.
“Industry and end-users have demanded robust high-definition low-latency multimedia-quality wireless display connections between their mobile devices and larger displays. Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Miracast™ meets those needs and provides a wireless multimedia experience on a par with that of a wired connection, while maintaining freedom of mobility within the coverage range of a Wi-Fi network”, said Realtek’s Vice President and Spokesman, Jessy Chen. “Realtek’s high-performance SoC family and its Wi-Fi chipsets will help to drive the global adoption of Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Miracast™ on mobile and CE devices and ensure end-user satisfaction”.
Realtek’s solutions listed in the Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Miracast™ test bed include:
- Realtek dual-band 2x2 RTL8192DE HM92D01 PCIe Half Mini Card
- Realtek RTD1185 RealShare Smart Display Adapter: RTD1185 SoC with the associated RTL8192DU dual-band 2x2 Wi-Fi chipset
“We congratulate Realtek on achieving Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Miracast™ certification,” said Wi-Fi Alliance CEO Edgar Figueroa. “Realtek’s participation in the development of this program has been instrumental in the achievement of industry-wide certification for this program”.
The Realtek Wi-Fi chipsets and associated SDK (Software Development Kit) will feature Miracast™ capability, which complements PC, tablets, mobile phones, and consumer SoC platforms to deliver the optimum wireless display experience.
