DALLAS, TXTexas Instruments Incorporated announced the TNETV1061, a Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) system on a chip. The DSP-based TNETV1061is designed for residential applications where voice quality, scalability, low cost and reliability are key issues.
The TNETV1061 integrates the company's Telogy Software. The device is designed with a dual processor architecture, making it well suited for simultaneous real-time voice processing and data traffic under heavy load conditions such as an analog terminal adapter, VoIP gateway/router, VoIP-enabled 802.11b/g access point/router or broadband cordless phone.
Hardware Features include:
High performance TMS320C55x(TM) DSP core and MIPS RISC processor.
Memory interfaces, including a Double Data Rate (DDR) memory interface and a NAND Flash Memory interface, allowing local voicemail storage.
Support for more cost-effective SLIC solutions, including the latest telephony interfaces from Legerity and Silicon Laboratories.
Processing power to deliver two secure, simultaneous voice channels for conferencing
An Ethernet 10/100 Phys interface that supports AutoMDIX
VLYNQ interface to TI's TNETW1350A 802.11b/g WLAN solution
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
