Texas Instruments, which makes microprocessors for wireless devices like cellular phones, will integrate RealNetworks' RealPlayer streaming media technology into its low-power digital signal processors (DSPs). Support for RealNetworks' streaming formats on its DA250 Internet audio DSP is scheduled to be available the second quarter of this year, according to a joint company statement.
The companies intend to bring streaming media to DSP-based Internet appliances such as portable Internet audio players, mobile handsets, and personal digital assistants with the agreement. Terms of the deal were not announced.
