SAN FRANCISCO, August 20 /PRNewswire/ --
Intel Developer Forum, CMD Booth # 832 -- California Micro Devices (Nasdaq: CAMD) announced that it is developing display controllers based upon the Mobile Industry Processor Interface (MIPI(TM)) alliance standard for high speed serial display interfaces. These display controllers will be used in next generation Intel-based Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs) and are being showcased in the MID Ecosystem Community at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco, California, from August 19 through 21, 2008.
CMD plans to provide innovative serial interface display controllers that enable the design of low cost MIPI(TM) based display modules featuring a reduced number of interface signals, lower power consumption and reduced electromagnetic interference (EMI) when compared to legacy display interfaces. California Micro Devices' collaboration with Intel reflects the company's focus on working with industry leaders to develop leading-edge technology and deliver innovative products.
"California Micro Devices is pleased to be working with Intel on innovative technology solutions that provide people with an improved mobile internet device experience," commented Kyle Baker, CMD's vice president of marketing. "Active participation in events such as the Intel Developer Forum allows us to showcase our capabilities and interact with the broader ecosystem of solution providers and customers."
"MIDs represent an emerging and exciting growth market segment that enables people to enjoy the best mobile Internet device experience," said Pankaj Kedia, director of Global Ecosystem Programs for Intel Corporation's Ultra Mobility Group. "Intel's innovation in low power technologies, combined with CMD's experience and capabilities in serial interface display controller design, should enable device makers to bring MIDs in sleeker and smaller form factors."

As a result, our actual results may differ materially from the statements made. Often such statements can be identified by their use of words such as will, intends, expects, plans, believes, anticipates, and estimates. Forward-looking statements made in this release include that CMD will be successful in developing display controllers based upon the Mobile Industry Processor Interface (MIPI(TM)) alliance standard for high speed serial display interfaces; that such controllers will be used in next generation Intel-based Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs); that such controllers will enable the design of low cost MIPI based display modules featuring a reduced number of interface signals, lower power consumption and reduced electromagnetic interference (EMI) when compared to legacy display interfaces; and that these controllers and modules will enable device makers to bring MIDs in sleeker and smaller form factors. These forward-looking statements are based upon our assumptions about and assessment of the future, which may or may not prove true, and involve a number of risks and uncertainties including, but not limited to whether CMD encounters technical difficulties in designing, developing or having a third party manufacture such a controller; whether the actual controller will have the designed features and will enable smaller MIDs; whether manufacturers will choose to release Intel-based MIDs; and whether such controllers and modules will be of interest to manufacturers of MIDs as well as the risk factors detailed in the company's Form 8K, 10K, and 10Q filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
