- New IntegratorQS slice is ideal for cost-sensitive endpoint and bridge applications
- Two integrated GigaBlaze(R) SerDes ports: each supports a single lane of PCI Express, SATA, SAS, Serial RapidIO, Gigabit Ethernet or Fibre Channel
-- Call via COMTEX News Network/ -- LSI Logic Corporation (NYSE: LSI) today announced the availability of a new low-cost slice in its RapidChip IntegratorQS(TM) Platform ASIC family -- the RapidChip IntegratorQS RC11Si204. Offered in an efficient 17mm 252-pin BGA package, the RC11Si204 provides peripheral and storage media developers with two lanes of GigaBlaze(R) SerDes (serializer/deserializer) as well as up to 500K usable ASIC gates and 500 Kbits of flexible MatrixRAM(TM) for communications, storage, medical imaging and computer peripheral applications.
"Designers require cost-effective, single-chip custom silicon for PCI Express bridging applications," said Yousef Khalilollahi, director RapidChip Marketing, LSI Logic. "LSI Logic's RapidChip IntegratorQS RC11Si204 not only offers an elegant single-chip, low-cost PCI Express solution, but also has significant room for additional system integration. For example, even after the PCI Express x1 link and transaction layer protocol implementation, more than 300K ASIC gates are still available."
LSI Logic's RC11Si204 RapidChip IntegratorQS slice offers SerDes PHY compliance with leading industry standard serial protocols, making the new slice an ideal, low-risk option for peripheral developers and, more specifically, developers embedding PC architecture platforms in communications and storage applications. This includes serial protocol bridging between PCI Express and Serial RIO as well as legacy parallel busses for existing microprocessors and digital signal processors (DSPs) that do not have built-in support for today's leading protocols -- a critical capability for new communications equipment.
LSI Logic also provides a complete array of solutions for PCI Express Physical, Data link and Transaction layer cores (http://www.lsilogic.com/products/pci_express_cores
/ ). These PCI Express cores provide a ready-made solution to customers, allowing them to focus on value-added portions of their design.
