Taipei, Taiwan R.O.C. - June 6, 2006 - Arkados Inc. (OTCBB: CDKN) is working with their customers to display a variety of prototype products at Computex Taipei 2006. The AI-1100 system-on-chip (SoC) incorporates HomePlug® technology, which enables a variety of digital devices to use a home's electrical wiring to send audio, data, even video streams throughout a home. Whole-house audio and digital security solutions that use the Arkados AI-1100 system-on-chip (SoC) can be viewed in the demonstration area of GigaFast Ethernet in Hall 1 1F, Booth A533.

“Because Arkados incorporated the HomePlug MAC/PHY, a powerful processor and so many other features directly into their chip, it became obvious that dozens of HomePlug products could be easily built with it,” said Jay Cheng, president of GigaFast Inc. “As an ODM, it offers tremendous flexibility to deliver exactly what our customers demand, as the chip in itself is a platform for limitless digital home applications.”

Arkados designed their AI-1100 chip to easily connect to audio interfaces, video DSPs, common networking and computing interfaces, and even LCDs and LEDs. Within the design of a security-in-a-box system, the Arkados AI-1100 processor supplies powerline communication capabilities, discovery and management middleware, and an Internet Protocol (IP) communications stack in a device that connects remote security cameras to any television in a home. The programmability of the Arkados chip makes it ideal for Internet Protocol TV (IPTV), surveillance, whole-house audio, and a host of other in-demand applications for the digital home.

“Our HomePlug-enabled reference designs demonstrate the versatility of SoCs from the Arkados ArkTIC family of solutions,” said Oleg Logvinov, Arkados president and CEO. “The platform we have created can be rapidly adapted to many applications, including whole-house digital video recorder (DVR) and Internet Protocol TV (IPTV).”

Arkados Inc. is a founding member of the HomePlug Powerline Alliance.
