The S3 Graphics 4300E will debut at Embedded Systems Conference, taking place at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California on April 15-18th, at the VIA booth (2110).
Boasting an industry leading performance-per-watt ratio that outperforms competitor products by as much as 30%, the S3 Graphics 4300E is currently the only discrete high-performance HD video and graphics processor tailored specifically to cope with the rigid thermal requirements of the embedded industry. Developers can opt for maximum power-efficiency or for extreme multimedia performance, based on end-product requirements.
Designed for DirectX 10.1 and OpenGL 2.1 using the latest programmable unified shader architecture, system developers can now bring an immersive 3D experience to feature-rich product introductions. The S3 Graphics 4300E also incorporates a programmable video engine with media acceleration for H.264, VC-1, AVS, DivX, and MPEG-2 HD, plus the latest in display connectivity including HDMI with HDCP, dual channel LVDS, and dual-link DVI.
The new 4300E multimedia processor joins the already-shipping 2300E family, expanding S3 Graphics’ portfolio of embedded graphics processors to a complete range of top-to-bottom solutions for multimedia intensive embedded applications, all with guaranteed supply longevity and support. An SDK and hardware development kit for the 2300E is available to developers now, while the 4300E development kit will be available in June 2008.
“With the fast evolving need for increasingly advanced digital multimedia technology in the embedded industry, we are extremely proud to offer a highly competitive product with the 4300E,” said Dr. Ken Weng, GM for S3 Graphics. “S3 Graphics now offers a full range of products that can inspire embedded system developers to greater and greater heights.”
