Alliance Semiconductor Corp. has released its AS90L10204 HyperTransport-to-PCI-X Bridge that is designed for use in workstations, computer servers, server blades, workstations and desktop PCs.

The AS90L10204 works with AMD's Opteron and Athlon families of X86-microprocessors, as well as with Transmeta's Efficeon microprocessor. The device, microprocessor and South Bridge create a three-piece chipset that bridges the HyperTransport interface from the Opteron, Athlon or Efficeon microprocessors to the PCI-X bus. This enables system manufacturers to tap into the infrastructure of peripherals and system components based on PCI-X, such as Network Interface Cards (NICs), RAID Controllers and Host Bus Adaptors (HBA).

The AS90L10204 supports two 8-bit HyperTransport interfaces that provide 1.6GBps of bandwidth in each direction and a single 64-bit 133MHz PCI-X bus which enables the connectivity to a variety of PCI-X based peripherals and add-on cards.

The device is available with a complete suite of reference design and software drivers.
