Allentown, Pa.Agere Systems Inc.'s SV92U2 is a USB-based modem chip set that is intended to replace the PCI modem in desktop PCs. The SV92U2 is said to reduce desktop computer bus size by 80%.
Smaller than the size of a dime, the SV92U2 is offered in three versions. The first is configured as internal modem to replace the PCI modem. A second variation features an external USB dongle model for applications that offer the modem as an option. And the third offering consists of a USB modem, delivered on a half mini-card form factor size for PCs that employ the mini-card architecture.
The SV92U2 chip set using Agere’s third-generation silicon DAA is a soft-modem product for both high-speed (480-MHz) and full-speed (12-MHz) USB 2.0 applications. The chip set works with Agere’s standard soft-modem drivers and supports V.92 and lower rates.
The SV92U2 is available in a 48-pin TQFP package.
Pricing for the SV92U2 modem chip is $4 in quantities of 10,000.
