Tundra's PCI-to-PCI bridge

Tundra Semiconductor Corp. has announced the availability of the Tsi350, a 32bit PCI-to-PCI Bridge. The company said the Tsi350 is an industry-standard, low-power 32bit 66MHz asynchronous PCI-to-PCI bridge that is competitively priced and targets new designs or existing board footprints using standard 32bit 66MHz PCI-to-PCI bridges.

Fully compliant with PCI Local Bus Specification Revision 2.3, the device has sufficient clock and arbitration pins to directly support nine PCI bus master devices for a wide range of applications, Tundra said, including communications and networking equipment, multifunction printers, imaging systems and embedded video recorders.

The launch of Tsi350 follows Tundra's recent acquisition of assets of the Systems Solutions Business Unit of Alliance Semiconductor Corp. "By acquiring and bringing the Tsi350 to market, we are ensuring the highest quality performance and most reliable supply chain for our PCI bridge customers," said Rick O'Connor, CTO at Tundra Semiconductor. "We are offering customers greater choice. Competitively priced, the Tsi350 offers low power backed by Tundra's world-class customer support and service."

The Tsi350 32bit PCI-to-PCI Bridge is currently sampling and will be in full production in October 2006. Volume pricing is under $8 in 1,000 quantities. The device is produced in 31-by-31mm 208 PQFP and 256 PBGA packages. The bridge is drop-in, pin-for-pin and software compatible with industry standard PCI bridges. The device is 3.3V I/O and 5V tolerant.
