Conexant Systems' latest ADSL2plus chip set for client-side gateway applications, the CX94515, delivers up to twice the throughput performance of current solutions. Key features include an integrated two-channel voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) processor and dual high-speed USB 2.0 interfaces that can be used to attach peripherals such as wireless LAN devices, storage products, printers, and Web-based digital cameras directly to the DSL gateway. In addition, the chip set is upgradeable to VDSL/VDSL2 technology, allowing manufacturers to maximize their engineering and software investments while migrating to new DSL technologies.
The ARM10-baed CX94515 is targeted at products including DSL bridge/routers, wireless DSL routers, and DSL VoIP integrated access devices (IADs). It also has integrated dual, standards-compliant 10/100 Ethernet interfaces, which allows for a combination of Ethernet and HomePlug or HomePNA connectivity. The CX94515 supports industry-standard operating systems including Linux, and Conexant's ISOS software solution.
Samples are available now, with volume production scheduled for the end of 2005. The device is packaged in a 376-pin plastic BGA and is priced at $15 each in production quantities.
