SEOUL -- Texas Instruments Inc. today announced that Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. and Hyundai Electronic Industrial Co. Ltd. have selected TI's digital signal processor technology for use in asymmetrical digital subscriber line (ADSL) products in the South Korean market. Dallas-based TI said ADSL services in Korea are expected to reach several hundred thousands lines by the end of next year.
TI said its TNETD300 chip sets for remote terminal and central office equipment will be used by the two Korean rivals in multiplexers and ADSL remote access equipment.
One key factor in selecting the TI ADSL chip sets was the multi-line architecture for "the highest line density possible for our central office equipment," said Moon-Kyun Woo, senior manager and ADSL project leader at Samsung. The chip set also supports full-rate and G.lite ADSL in a single device, he added.
The programmability of the chip sets will help assure interoperability with other ADSL equipment in the central office, said Seung Chul Park, senior manager and ADSL project leader for Hyundai.
