TrendChip Technologies Corp. Introduces the World's First IAD Solution with 2-Layer Circuit Board, Seizing Business Opportunities in the NGN Telecommunications Market

Jun 01, 2010, 08:00 ET from TrendChip Technologies Corporation

HSINCHU, Taiwan, June 1 / PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Leading manufacturer of xDSL CPE chips, TrendChip Technologies Corp., announced today a series of IAD (Integrated Access Device) solutions, seizing business opportunities brought about by the Next Generation Network's (NGN) conversion of traditional analogue telephone into a fully digitalized, and IP-based model. The first solution is TC3182P2V, a highly integrated IAD solution for voice, video, data and wireless services. It possesses high-performance ADSL2+ and 802.11n, and its carrier-level voice quality. The second solution is TC3182LEV. This solution is especially designed to meet the requirements of emerging markets' DSL-ATA (Analog Terminal Adapter). These solutions also mean that current limitations posed by the relatively expensive 4-layer circuit boards required by other IAD products will no longer apply, and 2-layer designs can be used directly, bringing IAD products into the new age of "being expensive in look, but not in price."

TrendChip Technologies Corp. has used the powerful processing core, MIPS(R) 34Kc, 2 Virtual Processing Elements (VPE), and the multi-threading system structure, in this series of IAD solutions, achieving not only the excellent network performance of wired speed, but also enabling IAD to maintain high definition quality in its voice signals even under high network traffic, thus ensuring the Quality of Service (QoS). At the same time, these solutions are compatible with RADVision(R) SIP (Session Initiation Protocol), which is the most common in the industry and has full interoperability. The solutions also offer voice compression coding formats, such as G.711, G.723, G.729, and G.722, in order to satisfy the requirements of different telecommunications specifications.

These IAD solutions include 2 types, TC3182P2V and TC3182LEV. The first type, TC3182P2V, fully complies with the highly-integrated IAD specifications required by telecommunications markets in the world. Its key functions and characteristics are:

    -- Leading the market in using the 2-layer circuit board as the reference
       design, which effectively lowers the system costs and shortens the time
       frame required for mass production
    -- Uses PCIe interface to connect with 11n WiFi chips, offering real 11n
       WiFi performance. It can also carry WiFi chips through RGMII, offering
       dual-band, 2.4GHz and 5GHz, to transfer data and video separately,
       providing IAD products with more powerful functions and higher
       flexibility to wireless users
    -- Supports 2 USB interfaces, and can offer value-added services easily,
       such as the Internet, FTP sever, and home security surveillance
    -- Offers RADVision (R) SIP, which is the most common in the industry, and
       has full interoperability, in order to satisfy different
       telecommunications specifications.
    -- Uses PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) interface to provide VoIP's FXS and
       FXO functions, and offers voice-related parameter setting interface,
       using the same hardware platform to meet the requirements of different
       voice standards. It also provides different voice compression coding
       formats, such as G.711, G.723, G.729, and G.722.
    -- Carries the Gigabit RGMII interface, which can be connected externally
       to the network switch, TC2205F, which is a Trendchip grade equivalent.
       It can also carry the GbE Switch, which can avoid bottlenecks when
       transferring files between home computers
    -- Offers complete remote management and detection industry standards
       defined by Broadband Forum, including TR-069, TR-098, TR-111, and
       TR-143

The second type, TC3182LEV, is especially designed for the requirements of emerging markets' DSL-ATA. Their key functions and characteristics are:

    -- Compatible with LQFP 128-pin packaging and the reference design of
       2-layer circuit boards, in order to satisfy DSL-ATA's requirement for a
       small and handy look
    -- A 10/100M Fast Ethernet PHY is built internally, which complies with
       the IEEE 802.3az industry standard, that is, Energy Efficient Ethernet
       (EEE). At the same time, it can also detect network cable length and
       unused network ports automatically for the purpose of power management.
    -- Offers RADVision (R) SIP, which is the most common in the industry, and
       has full interoperability, in order to satisfy different
       telecommunications specifications.
    -- Uses PCM interface to provide VoIP's FXS and FXO functions. It also
       offers voice-related parameter setting interface, using
       the same hardware platform to meet the requirements of different voice
       standards. It also provides different voice compression coding formats,
       such as G.711, G.723, G.729, and G.722.
    -- Offers complete remote management and detection industry standards
       defined by Broadband Forum, including TR-069, TR-098, TR-111, and
       TR-143

"Telecommunications providers in the world continue to invest in building the next generation network, and traditional analogue telephone is gradually becoming digitalized and IP-based, which will also drive the trend towards voice, video and data for ADSL access equipment. Currently, IAD products already constitute 20-25% of the entire ADSL CPE market. We believe that there will be another wave of growth starting the second half of this year. This will be especially significant in China's telecommunications market," Bomin Wang, President, said, "Fostered by the continuing policy of triple networks convergence in China, telecommunications operators will encounter pressure from cable TV operators competing in the broadband market. Hence, telecommunications operators must pick up speed in introducing IAD products, in order to offer Triple-Play services to maintain their competitiveness. The solutions offered by TrendChip can satisfy both the highly-integrated IAD market, as well as the entry-level DSL-ATA market, enabling telecommunications system providers to deliver IAD products with the best price performance within the shortest time frame."

Bomin Wang also said, "As the TC3182 solution is very competitive, and has the advantage of being compatible with IAD specifications of operator tenders, market response to this product has been overwhelming. Several telecommunications customers have already used this solution to develop a series of new IAD products, and the target release date will be in the third quarter of this year."
