Zarlink Semiconductor and AudioCodes have made available a joint solution to design residential gateway products based on Zarlink's VE890 Chipset and AudioCodes' Tulip AC494/5/6 ATA.
Linking Zarlink's VE890 voice telephony chipset with AudioCodes Tulip AC494 ATA reference design is aimed at reducing power consumption for voice-over-broadband equipment. Zarlink claims it's VE890 voice chipset, the lowest power solution available in the market today, reduces power consumption by 50 percent compared with competing solutions.
"Combining the industry's lowest power FXS and unique echo-free FXO from Zarlink with AudioCodes' field-proven DSP VoIP software and integrated AC494 SoC, the new reference design offers equipment manufacturers the best-in-class, ready-to-deploy solution for the fast growing residential gateway market," said Jacques Issa, Director of VoIP Marketing and Applications with Zarlink's Communication Products Group.
"Zarlink's VE890 is another enhancement to our feature rich Tulip AC494 ATA, which keeps it at the state-of-the-art of today's ATA solutions," said Shaul Weissman, Vice President, VoIP processors at AudioCodes. "The AC494 Tulip reference design with VE890 support enables designers to quickly develop VoIP applications while at the same time reduce their bill of materials. We are delighted to be working closely with Zarlink to deploy VoIP reference solutions based on the VE890 series."
