Ottawa, CanadaZarlink Semiconductor Inc. has expanded its VE880 VoicePort Series of VoIP-enabled devices, with a chipset that allows manufacturers to meet power, performance and cost requirements for equipment supporting high-quality voice service over broadband networks.
According to Zarlink, the VE8820 chipset consumes 50 percent less power than competing devices. The dual channel VE8820 chipset enabling voice-over-broadband applications helps equipment manufacturers more easily comply with emerging "green" environmental standards, such as strict energy consumption limits for broadband equipment outlined in the European Code of Conduct. In addition, the VE8820 chipset's low power performance ensures uninterrupted voice service in battery-backed systems in the event of a power outage.
The highly programmable dual channel VE8820 chipset supports both wideband and narrowband telephony operation, and is software compatible with existing VE880 VoicePort Series devices. The product is supported by the VoicePath API-II Software Development Kit to help simplify design, speed product development and enable improved telephone line testing capability through the field proven VeriVoice Test Suite software.
