ATI Technologies plans to branch out from its core graphics chip business next year, with designs on the “system-on-a-chip” market.
ATI intends to develop entire systems for low-cost Internet devices and TV set-top boxes.
In 2000, the company will introduce a single chip that combines the main processor with a graphics processor, memory, and chip set. ATI has already tested the waters in this market by supplying chips for General Instrument’s advanced DCT-5000 TV set-top box.
