Chips inks mimio deal

Chips has taken on the distribution of Virtual Ink's mimio range - portable devices that allow users to use nearly any flat surface to digitally capture handwritten text and sketches using infrared and ultrasound technology.

"We chose Chips as our IT channels distributor because of the division's unique inroads in both the PC and Apple markets," said Virtual Ink's ANZ accounts manager Matthew Thomas.

The technology is expected to find application across the corporate and educational markets.

"mimio provides a revolutionary collaborative tool with which business professionals can share and communicate information," Thomas said.

Rambus unveils InfiniBand technology

Rambus has unveiled reference designs for a high-speed server I/O system which it plans to license to semiconductor manufacturers.

The design for the 3.125Gbps SerDes (Serialiser/Deserialiser) technology is intended for inclusion in third-party semiconductor designs built around the InfiniBand architecture, an I/O architecture designed for use in servers and storage systems.

The design element, or cell, supports data rates of 1.0Gbps to 3.125Gbps per channel, including the 2.5Gbps InfiniBand specification, according to a company statement. The cell is available in single and quad versions, with the quad cell supporting four InfiniBand links for a total of 12.5Gbps of bandwidth in each direction.

The cell can be used in applications including 10-Gigabit Ethernet, SONET, Fibre Channel, XAUI, InfiniBand, router backplane links and custom chip-to-chip applications, the company said.
