Irvine, CA Broadcom Corporation announced the BCM1103 IP phone chip that is designed to enable manufacturers to build IP phones with integrated Gigabit Ethernet switching and other features to support improved voice quality, guaranteed voice security and graphics-driven applications that demand more processing power.
The chip integrates a Gigabit Ethernet (10/100/1000 Mbps) switch and two Fast Ethernet (10/100 Mbps) transceivers, allowing for the development of traditional Fast Ethernet IP phone designs without the additional cost of adding external transceivers. It is specified for 1.0W peak, 0.15W standby power.
The BCM1103 includes the company's BroadSAFE security technology, which enables the secure transmission of voice packets without burdening the phone's RISC CPU. The BCM1103's hardware security module performs voice encryption and authentication and elevates the phone's system security using a unique identifier embedded in each chip.
The chip's high-performance RISC processor and DSP support the company's PhonexChange IP telephony software suite. The chip further integrates a variety of IP phone peripherals including wideband-capable analog codecs (coder/decoder) with integrated amplifiers and provides flexible interfaces for external peripherals and memory types. The BCM911103SP IP phone reference design platform is also available to help development.
The BCM1103 chip and BCM91103SP reference design are sampling. The chip comes in a 420-pin PBGA lead-free package and is priced at $25 in 10K quantities.
