Octasic Semiconductor is enhancing its OCT6100 family with the introduction of lower power and lower cost devices, enabling higher density and one of the highest voice quality for customers designing down to 4 channels. According to the company, the OCT6100L builds on the success of the current OCT6100 devices, offering unprecedented voice quality enhancement features through the use of 130nm technology.

As echo cancellation moves from a standalone box to an internal embedded feature of gateway and switching equipment, designers are faced with increasing demands for lower power to meet their density targets, while improving quality, explained Octasic. As a response, the company developed the OCT6100L, which promises to provide cost efficient, power efficient, performance driven silicon, while ensuring the longevity of the product for the enterprise and carrier equipment market space.

"With over 15 million ports deployed, the OCT6100 has been a great success. We are pleased with the acceptance of this architecture. Now, with the OCT6100L, Octasic can respond to the most stringent customer requirements for density and cost," said Octasic CTO Doug Morrissey. "The result of our partnership with STMicroelectronics, this device represents the first of many that leverage their impressive capabilities to deliver market leading performance."

The OCT6100L includes the following features: Octasic Music Protection, acoustic echo control, adaptive noise reduction, and extensive conferencing capabilities that allow IPBX equipment providers to implement high end capabilities in a uniform manner from the smallest to largest products.

By lowering the core voltage from 1.8V to 1.2V, the OCT6100L cuts the power performance to less than 1.5mW per fully featured channel. Combined with its ease of integration, said Octasic, this device is perfectly suited to adding or enhancing echo cancellation of existing platforms providing a more cost effective solution for carriers.

Samples of the OCT6100L are already available. Production quantities are planned for early 2006, with pricing under 50 cents per channel in volume quantities.
