Lite-On Tech and BridgeCo announced today that they had formed a partnership to design and build network audio products for OEMs based on the JukeBlox technology. JukeBlox technology will be used to develop Internet radio and network music player products for companies around the world.
Lite-On and BridgeCo say that the technology they plan to use is in use in products already including Internet radios, mini audio systems, docking stations and more from multiple consumer brands. The JukeBlox technology is based on a BridgeCo three-core CPU, Linux-based SDK, and hardware reference platform.
"BridgeCo's deep market knowledge and their extensive product testing, combined with the most extensive feature set available and the ease of enhancement, is allowing Lite-On Tech to confidently develop multiple and differentiated products for customers using JukeBlox," said Frank Lee, Vice President of Network Access Business Unit at Lite-On Tech. "We have already gained one consumer brand customer. The reason for their choice was the combination of values that BridgeCo offers, and the ability of Lite-On Tech to quickly develop finished products," added Frank Lee.
