"Cirrus Logic Inc. (Nasdaq:CRUS) today announced multiple new design wins for its Maverick processors running embedded Linux in recently reported Internet products such as the futuristic IBM Internet appliance wrist watch prototype, S3's Diamond Rio Receiver and PhatNoise's PhatBox car audio system."

"The combination of rapid time-to-market and flexibility are among the key reasons customers chose Maverick processors for embedded Linux in consumer applications. This customer trend should continue to expand as upcoming Internet products such as Web tablets, Personal Device Appliances (PDAs), TV Internet boxes and audio jukeboxes are announced."

"The recently announced IBM Internet appliance wristwatch prototype would allow consumers to send and receive email on the go, giving them the convenience and time-saving advantages of an Internet connection without wires or plugs. Winner of ZDNet's first-ever "Tech Trendsetter" award, Rio's Receiver enables consumers to stream MP3 music from a PC to any room in the house, giving consumers access to MP3 music in their living room stereo, where they were previously limited to portable digital audio players. PhatNoise's PhatBox car audio system, which won "Best Overall Product" at the Third Annual MP3 Summit, gives consumers the capability to take MP3 music files from their PC and listen to them in the sound system of their car."
