Tokyo Electron Device (TED) introduced the inrevium TE4302 LSI. The TE4302 is a controller LSI that supports UHS-I of the latest SD card standard and MMC DDR mode of MMC standard. It features a function for bridging between these media interfaces and other interfaces such as ATA and CF. The TE4302 LSI supports SDR104 (104 Mbyte/second), which is the highest bus speed mode of the UHS-I. Samples of the inrevium TE4302 will be available June 2010 and full-scale deliveries are expected in October 2010.
Taiwan Commate Computer Inc. (COMMELL) introduced the MPX-643 IEEE 1394b PCI Express mini card. The MPX-643 is based on LSI’s FW643 device, which is a single-chip solution integrating PCI Express bus and 1394b functions. MPX-643 offers one 400Mbits/1394a and two 800Mbits/1394b ports for high-speed connectivity that provides plug and play for FireWire devices and peripherals for Windows operating systems. The OS will detect the card presence and load appropriate drivers automatically. Driver for Linux is also available.
