Fujitsu Semiconductor Asia Pte Ltd has developed an interface bridge SoC that according to the company brings together a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor and a host of different interfaces in a single chip. The MB86E631 incorporates 10 interfaces including USB, Serial ATA, PCI Express, Ethernet MAC and TS.

Not only is the product optimal for use together with a transcoder LSI in WiFi TV tuner applications, but it can also be used as a CPU for interface control in multi-tuner devices and other applications in which control of multiple interfaces is required. In addition, the chip will lead to the development of a new market that extends beyond video delivery and recording devices to include products that require performance greater than that of MCUs and support for multiple interfaces, added the company.

By incorporating various interfaces such as USB2.0/3.0, Serial ATA, PCI Express, as well as the DDR3 and Quad Serial Flash Controller memory interfaces, the series can be used in a host of applications including CPUs for transcoder LSI control and CPUs for interface control in multi-channel recorders that require the control of multiple interfaces.

Fujitsu Semiconductor offers reference boards featuring MB86E631 together with the company's transcoder LSI. DLNA-compatible reference boards for Linux are also available as a solution for WiFi TV tuner products, making product development easy.

The MB86E631 is scheduled to be available by December this year.
