LSI Strengthens Leadership in Modem Market with New Line of Embedded Products

LSI delivers new embedded modem product portfolio to address all segments of the modem market

MILPITAS, Calif., May 29 -- LSI Corporation (NYSE:LSI) today announced a complete line of embedded modem products, which include a pin-compatible family of data and fax modem chipsets and a single package monolithic DAA (data access arrangement). The new line builds on the company's long history of delivering leading products to the modem market and expands its reach into embedded modem applications, ranging from point-of-sale terminals, set top boxes, and digital TVs to multi-function printers and fax machines. The LSI embedded modem products will be on display in LSI booth T101A-2 at the upcoming Computex Taipei conference taking place June 5-9.

The new LSI portfolio features a family of Embedded Data Modems, including the CV92, CV34 and CV22 chipsets, and a family of embedded fax modems, including the CFAX34 and CFAX17 chipsets. The LSI offering provides customers with pin compatibility, low part counts, small form factors, and easy migration between performance levels. In addition, the embedded data chipsets support data rates as high as V.92 and protocols including V.44, V.42bis and MNP2-4, while the embedded fax chipsets support rates as high as V.34 and implement the entire T.30 protocol, including error correction, without the need of external memory.

The new modem chipsets introduced today are based on LSI third generation silicon DAA, the CSP1040, which is field-proven in meeting the requirements of the worldwide telephone network. Integrated in tens of millions of modems and certified and shipped in more than 100 countries around the world, the CSP1040 greatly simplifies the interface to the telephone line and decreases the cost and size required by the modem to a level unmatched in the industry. With the CSP1040, the LSI chips implement a complete modem function interfacing to the host through a general-purpose parallel, a serial UART, or, in most devices, an SPI interface, without the need for external memory.

Today, LSI is also introducing the DAA1040 monolithic 20x24mm DAA module, that includes the CSP1040 and all of the circuitry required to interface to the phone line. This greatly simplifies embedded modem design by reducing the entire modem to two devices. In addition, it allows manufacturers with little modem experience to speed time to market, reduce bill-of-material inventory issues associated with building the modem, and simplify the certification process.

"Embedded modems are called upon every second of every day around the world, whether it is a credit card transaction at a gas pump or a person using a remote ATM machine," said Surinder Rai, director modem products, Network and Storage Products Group, LSI. "Such usage is driving significant growth in this market. With our announcement today, we have leveraged our history and leadership in the modem space to offer an embedded modem roadmap that is world class and meets the needs of this growing market segment."
