ViA has selected the StrongARM as the initial microprocessor for prototype development. A StrongARM evaluation board was ordered in October and was delivered in late November. The SideKick companion board, which houses the SAl101, was delivered in December. Once a functionally complete prototype is available, performance analysis will be performed to determine if the wrist device can utilize a less powerful processor. In the meantime, revised data suggests that the combination of the SAl100 and the SAl101 will exceed our original power budget for the CPU. Therefore, ViA will be studying approaches to eliminate the SAl 101 from the final system solution.
