[ Taipei, Taiwan ]

Genesys Logic, Taiwan's leading company of high-speed I/O communication, announces that its independently developed high-speed USB 2.0 Host/On-The-Go Controllers have undergone stringent inspections and have been chosen by digital photo frame companies as the best choice in enhancing product compatibility and competitiveness.


According to ITIS, 1.95 million units of digital photo frames were sold worldwide last year, and the sales volume is expected to increase to 4.06 million units (an increase of 108%). By 2010, global demand will reach 12.35 million units and the compound annual growth rate will reach 74.7%. Moreover, based on surveys, consumers state that aside from quality and price of digital photo frames, 85% of users are also concerned with compatibility with memory cards and digital cameras; therefore, consumers are willing to pay more to get better products.


Genesys Logic's high-speed USB 2.0 Host/On-The-Go Controllers provide complete USB peripherals for digital photo frames. GL824C includes the low-cost, high-performance USB 2.0 Host/On-The-Go function, which is compatible with major brands of digital cameras and USB storage devices. Aside from the functions of the USB 2.0 Host/On-The-Go, GL824 also integrates Genesys Logic's well-known card reader controller; a single chip provides high-performance and high-compatibility USB card reader and peripheral solutions to digital photo frames. Focusing on users' needs for highly compatible digital photo frames, Genesys Logic has not only received the USB 2.0 On-The-Go certification from USB-IF, but also requested testing agencies to test the compatibility in all USB devices in digital cameras and portable drives, regularly providing "Target Peripheral List" in order to ensure stable USB solutions.


Genesys Logic's high-speed USB 2.0 Host/On-The-Go solution was delivered in the third quarter of 2005; since then, companies such as ESS Technology, MagicPixel Inc and Smedia Technology have used this product in their multimedia devices (such as DPF, LCD TV, PMP, etc.). Many other international digital photo frame companies have also chosen this product. Genesys Logic hopes that this product will ensure their own competitiveness in terms of USB devices and create a win-win situation for consumers and providers.


Genesys Logic will demonstrate the USB 2.0 Host/On-The-Go Controllers at Computex TPE from June 5 to June 9, 2007. Our booth at the exhibition will be located at: TWTC Hall 3, G364~G366.
