Tundra Semiconductor Introduces Tsi352 PCI-to-PCI Bridge
Tundra Semiconductor Corporation (TSX:TUN), the leader in System Interconnect, now offers customers a complete portfolio of proven, high performance, low-cost PCI and PCI-X bridges. Tundra launched the new Tsi352(TM) PCI-to-PCI Bridge, fully compliant with PCI Local Bus Specification, Revision 2.3. The Tsi352 makes it possible to extend a system’s load capability limit beyond that of a single PCI bus by allowing motherboard designers to add more PCI devices or more PCI option card slots than a single PCI bus can support. The Tsi352 has two identical PCI Interfaces that handle PCI transactions for its respective bus. This traffic isolation can increase system performance in many applications such as multimedia.
