AMD Announces Participation In Universal ADSL Working Group's G.Lite Interoperability Showcase At Supercomm '99 With ADSL Chipset
AMD two-chip solution is programmable to support both G.Lite and full-rate ADSL speeds
SUNNYVALE, CA --
AMD today announced participation in the Universal ADSL Working Group's (UAWG) Interoperability Showcase at SUPERCOMM '99 with its AmDSL™ chipset. The DMT ADSL modem solution is programmable to operate at both the UAWG-defined G.Lite speed (ITU G.992.2) and at full-rate ADSL speed (ANSI T1.413i2 & ITU G.992.1). AMD's Intelligent Access™ AmDSL™ chipset, a two-chip, rate-adaptive, DMT-based ADSL modem solution includes the AmDSL134 Analog Front End (AFE) and the AmDSL135 DMT transceiver devices. AMD's system solution can be configured to support both the network and customer premise equipment (CPE) markets.
Based on industry-leading technology from Alcatel Access Systems, this prototype external ADSL modem (ATU-R) shows AMD physical layer devices interoperating with DSLAM (ATU-C) products and silicon from other leading suppliers.
"AMD is pleased to demonstrate the level of interoperability we have attained with our ADSL full-rate and G.Lite capable AmDSL chipset at SUPERCOMM," said Homer Lloyd, AMD marketing director for the Communication Products Division. "To date we have demonstrated interoperability with the four leading silicon solutions on the market and are committed to bringing standards-compliant DMT ADSL to the marketplace in order to assure seamless interoperability for the consumer."
Availability and Pricing
The AMD AmDSL chipset is planned to be available in the third quarter. Please contact AMD for pricing information.
