The IPVP6446 comes complete with built-in keypad, speaker, microphone, camera and VGA TFT LCD display complete with Ethernet interface with built-in Ethernet switch, wireless LAN, USB, IrDA and RJ11 interface. The platform also supports a range of storage devices including HDD, SD/MMC and SM. Within the system, TI's MSP430 ultra low power 16-bit RISC microcontroller (MCU) handles supervising functions by watching for inputs from the infra-red remote control and providing a real time clock function.

MSP430 MCUs offer the industry's lowest power real time clock mode operation at 0.8 micro amps.

"Harnessing the performance and flexibility of DaVinci technology, Ittiam has developed a complete, solid video phone solution that allows developers to deliver a compelling video telephony experience," said Pamela Jordan, Video IP phone product manager, TI. "OEMs and ODMs can now turn to Ittiam's IPVP6446 as a one-stop solution for their development of differentiated, high-quality video phones that exceed end user expectations."

"Nearly two and half years ago, Ittiam made a forward looking investment in the emerging possibilities of personal video communication technology," commented Srini Rajam, chairman and chief executive officer, Ittiam Systems.

"We believe that with DaVinci technology we now have the perfect horse power and price combination to take the market to the next level," he added.
