BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Cavium, Inc. (NASDAQ: CAVM), a leading provider of semiconductor products that enable intelligent processing for networking, communications and the digital home, today announced that Huawei's new AirSharing AM02 wireless media adapter uses Cavium's CNW6611L media SoC to offer superior wireless display and home media streaming capabilities.  The launch of the new adapter will coincide with the introduction of Huawei's new Ascend Mate smartphone.  Based on standard 802.11n WiFi technology, the new adapters from Huawei leverage Cavium's wireless display solution to offer robust transmission of high quality video and audio, while minimizing the end-to-end latency for enhanced interactivity. At a size of approximately 2" x 3", this USB-powered adapter is designed with cost structure and a form-factor ideally suited for addressing the mainstream consumer market. Huawei will be demonstrating the new AirSharing adapter at their booth at the 2013 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, from Feb 25th and Feb 28th.


The new PureVu-based AirSharing adapter, when combined with Huawei's media sharing application on their new Mate smartphone, enable consumers with superior content sharing and viewing experience.  Whether stored locally or streamed from the cloud, content can be projected from the small screen of the mobile device to the larger screen of a high definition TV.  With support for both screen projection and DLNA-based streaming capability, the AirSharing adapter is designed to turn Huawei's mobile devices into the center of entertainment and media sharing at home. 

"Cavium and Huawei are seeing a tremendous consumer interest in the ability to seamlessly share media content, stored locally on the phone or otherwise streamed from the cloud, through the mobile device," said Raj Singh, GM. "We are pleased to collaborate with Huawei on their new Airsharing media adapter for Huawei's Ascend Mate platform."

CNW6611L's architecture offers the flexibility of a 1080p multi-format media subsystem, along with the raw horsepower of hardware accelerated security and graphics processing, to support various media streaming and wireless display capabilities. In addition, Huawei's AirSharing adapter leverages Cavium comprehensive firmware and software stacks, including WiVu wireless display receiver, DLNA digital media renderer (DMR) module, content protection libraries, media quality of service (QoS) over WiFi, and the graphical user interface library.
