Tsi110 host bridge

Tundra Semiconductor Corp. announced the Tundra Tsi110 host bridge for PowerPC. This new product is designed for a range of applications for the wireless and wireline networking, storage and embedded computing markets.

The Tsi110 integrates several communications peripherals, including two 4-lane PCIe ports, four Gigabit Ethernet ports and one PCI-X port. According to the company, this level of integration offers system designers options for I/O connectivity and reduces external component count.

Included in the Tsi110's feature set is Gigabit Ethernet hardware acceleration, which off-loads the host processor and allows the four Gigabit Ethernet ports to run at full line rate for data plane applications. The Tsi110 is also software compatible with the Tsi109 and Tsi108, allowing software reuse and accelerating development cycles.

According to Tundra, the Tsi110 is an ideal companion chip for both Freescale Semiconductor's MPC74xx and IBM PPC750xx high performance processors.

The Tsi110 host bridge will be available for sampling in late 2006 through Tundra's sales network. Volume pricing for the Tsi110 is under $80.
