San Jose, CA--September 17, 1996--TEMIC Semiconductors (Santa Clara, CA) unveiled its product road map for the advanced 32-bit SPARClet microcontroller family, as well as announcing the availability of third-party software components.
The first member of the SPARClet family was announced in April as a SPARC-based alternative solution to Motorola's PowerQuicc communications controller. The TSC701 will be going into full production in January 1997. Four additional SPARClet devices are planned for release in the next 12 months. All are aimed at the communications market segment, and target networking, switching, and digital cellular applications.
Descriptions of each device follow:
TSC701LV A low-power version of the TSC701 running at 50MHz and 3V. Samples will be available in the first quarter of 1997.
TSC701SW A 3-V, 70-MHz version of the TSC701 built on a 0.35m CMOS process. Samples will be available in the second quarter of 1997.
TSC702 An ATM communications controller including a dedicated ATM cells co-processor, UTOPIA physical link, and PCI bus interface. THE TSC702 will be built on a 0.35m CMOS process running at 70 MHz, and will be available in the fourth quarter of 1997.
TSC711 This communications controller will target low-end applications such as network computers, ISDN routers and adapters, and set-top boxes. The CPU core will be adapted to run byte-code language such as Java, and the controller will include such functions as PCI, USB interface, ISDN line, and Ethernet on-chip. Built on a 0.35m CMOS process, the TSC711 will be available in the third quarter of 1997. Pricing in OEM quantities is targeted at the $20 range.
