San Jose, Calif., October 27, 2003 - Pericom Semiconductor Corp. is looking to expanded its PCI-to-PCI Bridge portfolio with six new devices. The new PI7C8150A/8150B and PI7C8152A/8152B products are 32-Bit, 2-port PCI-to-PCI bridge devices supporting both 33 MHz and 66 MHz.
The B devices offer asynchronous mode support. Asynchronous mode allows customers to run the secondary bus at a frequency that is not derived from the primary bus, thus providing far greater support for next generation design applications. Asynchronous mode support is significant as customers engineer newer faster designs that need to merge with slower legacy devices, the company said. These devices target markets that use PCI buses and extensions including networking, computer, industrial, and video surveillance.
