Chip Embarks As First Voice Enabled GPON SoC

EMBEDDED SYSTEMS CONFERENCE, San Jose, CA. - Debuting as the industry's first voice-enabled Gigabit passive optical networking (GPON) system on chip (SoC), the multi-core MSC7120 integrates a Power Architecture CPU, StarCore DSP, and a data path engine to deliver a complete PON sub-system in a single device. It addresses the high data forwarding throughput requirements of applications that include the delivery of triple play broadband services. The device supports the G.984 GPON GEM protocol and is compliant with the ITU-T standards. Development tools, hardware platforms, software building blocks, and application specific software solutions for the MSC7120 are available. The software includes real-time operating system support for the StarCore DSP and Power Architecture cores and a variety of application software including DSP voice framework, signaling stacks, and GPON software stacks. Offered in a 456-pin thermally enhanced PBGA package, the MSC7120 is sampling now. FREESCALE SEMICONDUCTOR INC., Austin, TX. (800) 521-6274.
