[ Taipei, Taiwan ]

Genesys Logic, a world leading Taiwan-based USB 2.0 controller solution provider, announces the world's first Bus-Power-certified card reader controller (GL817: SD/MMC/MS/MS-Pro) for Sony's new Memory Stick PRO. Manufactured with LQFP48 sealing, GL817 is offered with cutting edge USB 2.0 interface at low power consumption and low cost to enhance competitiveness.


GL817 supports a wide variety of standard memory card interfaces such as Memory Stick™(MS), Secure Digital™(SD) and Multi Media Card™(MMC). From the viewpoint of application, flash memory manufacturers can supply card readers with power provided from USB interface without using additional batteries or power cables. Therefore, it is the best solution for flash memory card controllers with full applications, elegance and superb read/write functions.


Additionally, GL811E (USB 2.0 to ATA/ATAPI Bridge Controller), another novel product from Genesys Logic, has just passed USB-IF certification. It is compatible with GL811 series and supports UDMA high-speed data transfer to provide a perfect solution for external storage devices (HDD and CD-ROM) at higher speed data transfer. By converting ATA/ATAPI storage devices into USB 2.0 compatible specifications, GL811E enables manufacturers to develop external storage devices that combine convenient use, high performance, high reliability and compatibility at the shortest time and lowest cost.


In shipping volume, Genesys Logic already shipped 5 million chips of USB 2.0 controllers in Q1 of 2003, and the monthly output since April has exceeded million chips. In addition to its leadership in the local market, Genesys Logic has become one of the world leading USB 2.0 controller solution providers together with NEC and Cypress.  In product certification, 11 products from Genesys Logic have passed USB-IF certification, which ranks at the top in the world. Moreover, 4 of them even passed Bus Power certification, which is unique in the world. The world's leading flash memory manufacturers have validated these products, like Sandisk, and mass production has already begun.
