Texas Instruments Releases to Production PCI Express x1 Physical Layer Device

Flexible MAC Interface Enables Low-Cost Solutions

DALLAS (August 2, 2006) - Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NYSE: TXN) announced today full-production release of its new PCI Express x1 physical layer (PHY) device, the XIO1100. The XIO1100 is ideal for markets demanding low-cost PCIe end-point solutions such as data acquisition, industrial, networking and communication, medical and imaging, as well as consumer and video. XIO1100 is compliant with the PCI Express Base Specification Revision 1.1 and PHY Interface for the PCI Express Architecture (PIPE) 1.0. (For more information see or

XIO1100's flexible MAC interface supports both source synchronous and DDR clocking "This offers distinct advantages to our customers in terms of faster time to market and enabling lower cost solutions." said Jawaid Ahmad, strategic product marketing manager for TI's digital interface business unit. "SS clocking makes I/O layout robust and painless while DDR clocking offers our customers the opportunity to choose low-cost FPGAs which do not run faster than 125MHz."

Adding to its list of benefits, the XIO1100 has an integrated adaptive equalizer in its receive link, providing system design flexibility and reliably increasing interconnect length supported by the XIO1100.

Availability, Package and Pricing

The XIO1100 is available today in a 100-pin MicroStar(TM) BGA in Pb or Pb-free RoHS-compliant package. 1KU reference price is $7/unit. TI also offers third-party development kits based on XIO1100 and Cyclone II(TM) or Spartan 3(TM) FPGAs.

TI´s Commitment to PCI Express

TI's roadmap includes a complete portfolio of products built for the PCI Express architecture, enabling chip-to-chip interconnect, I/O interconnect for adapter cards and an I/O attach point to other interconnects such as PCI, 1394 (FireWire) and USB.

About PCI Express

PCI Express is a point-to-point serial differential low-voltage interconnect that consolidates application requirements for use by multiple market segments. PCI Express architecture is a high-performance, highly-flexible, scalable, reliable, stable and cost-effective general-purpose I/P architecture that seamlessly complements existing PCI buses. PCI Express will lead the market transition during the next several years, allowing system and communication designers to use new topologies.
