SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Oki Electric Industry Co. Ltd.'s semiconductor operation today announced a partnership with Intersil Corp. of Irvine, Calif., to address wireless and other communications analog markets with coder-decoder (CODEC) and Subscriber Line Interface Circuit (SLIC) chip solutions.
As part of the effort, Oki Semiconductor in Sunnyvale said it has released a new ML7033 dual-channel voice CODEC device for voice signals that "seamlessly" interface with the Intersil RSLIC18 family of subscriber line interface circuits. The partnership aims to serve manufacturers of integrated voice and data systems, which are now developing next-generation voice over broadband (VoBB) and voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) solutions for the market.
"This association reinforces our commitment to customer service by providing advanced technology that removes integration and design obstacles system developers face," said Eric Nguyen, senior product marketing manager for telecom products at Oki Semiconductor in Sunnyvale.
The ML703 covers a 300-to-3,400-Hz voice signal range using a single power supply, allowing for generation of a wide range of tones, according to Oki. The CMOS device has integrated programmable dynamic traffic management system, which enables developers to specifically program up to 64 slots, said the company.
Samples of the ML7033 are available now and priced at $2.67 per 10,000 units. The evaluation board is available for $950.
