VON CONFERENCE, San Jose, Calif. - March 15, 2006 - The ZSP ® business unit of LSI Logic Corporation (NYSE: LSI) today announced the addition of the Z.VoiceTM System-on-Chip (SoC) Voice-over-IP (VoIP) licensable sub-system and Z.Voice-VoWiFi with AEC to its portfolio of VoIP solutions. The Z.Voice VoIP sub-system offers an integrated solution in broadband access for applications such as IP phones and CPE gateway devices. The Z.Voice-VoWiFi software solution enables faster time-to-market for implementing voice over Wireless LAN.
Combined with the ZSP410 licensable digital signal processor (DSP) core, the Z.Voice SoC sub-system provides a system solution at a silicon level. With its integrated design and software VoIP sub-system, customers can implement this solution as a blackbox, with no need to program the DSP. Cell phone designers who plan to add VoIP at the chip level can apply the SoC sub-system along with the Z.Voice VoWiFi integrated software to enable VoIP functionality in their handset designs. These products support the popular VoIP codecs* such as G.711 with PLC, G.729AB, G.723.1. The ZSP unit also offers the full range of G.729, G.728 and GSM codecs and is working with third party partners to support wideband codecs including G.722.2 for enhanced voice quality and iLBC for instant messaging based VoIP
