Analog Devices introduce first TI on a chip solution for data and voice over internet Tom Foremski Analog Devices (ADI) has introduced the industry’s first T1 on a chip offering 24 ports with applications in data and voice over Internet (VoIP). ADI says that its ADSP-21mod980 chip measures just 1.9 square inches and consumes the lowest power and space per port. And each of the 24 ports on the ADSP-21mod980 is able to independently process different standards. The company gives the example of the chip handling a V.90 modem on one port, G.729A VoIP on another, and/or a fax call on a third. Internet service providers will be able to use equipment based on the chip to offer a wide variety of Internet based services. The chip processes 600 million instruction per second and integrates 2 megabits of SRAM, in a 35 x 35 mm 352-lead BGA package. It is priced at $265 in 1,000 unit orders, and includes all required hardware and software.
