NEC Electronics' PCI Express ASSPs and ASIC Core Solutions

NEC Electronics is committed to PCI Express technology and provides complete solutions. In 2002, NEC Electronics America was the first company to demonstrate a PCI Express PHY chip and endpoint controller core based on NEC Electronics' proven serializer/deserializer (SerDes) technology. PCI Express ASSPs include various switch and bridge chips. More information about NEC Electronics America's products using PCI Express technology can be found at

NEC Electronics' Wireless USB Products

NEC Electronics is a leading supplier of USB solutions for worldwide customers and was the first company to introduce a USB 2.0 host controller, hub controller and device controller. With a USB 2.0 product lineup that includes ASSPs and ASICs, the company has shipped more than 80 million USB 2.0 products. NEC Electronics continues to drive the development of next- generation interface technology and is working with the Wireless USB Promoter Group to standardize specifications for Wireless USB. The company also announced today its new device wire adapter (DWA) LSI chip (part number uPD720180) to enable the connection of wired USB peripherals, such as a mouse or printer, to systems based on the Certified Wireless USB specification. In addition, the DWA chip can be combined with NEC Electronics' uPD720170 host controller chip that will enable designers to easily implement a complete system. The host controller enables high-speed wireless transmission of data between personal computers (PCs) and PC peripherals such as printers, external storage equipment and digital cameras. The host controller will be used for mobile phones and other consumer-type electronic devices as Certified Wireless USB technology is adopted in those markets. The company is also working with partners to develop a prototype high-speed Wireless USB product with ultra- wideband technology as the physical layer.

NEC Electronics' Advanced Memory Buffer

Fully compliant with the AMB standard ratified by JEDEC, NEC Electronics' AMB device is a key enabling technology behind the increased bandwidths and large memory capacities characteristic of emerging FB-DIMM products. The device's unique channel structure mitigates buffer latency issues typical of registered DIMM memory, enabling higher levels of memory performance for applications such as servers, routers and graphics controllers. NEC Electronics is working closely with the industry's leading DRAM and FB-DIMM manufacturers to further develop the FB-DIMM market and help drive FB-DIMMs as the next-generation memory platform for server applications.
