PCIe To PCI-X Bridge Maintains Compatibility, Boosts Performance

The Tsi384 four-lane PCI Express (PCIe) to PCI-X Bridge is pin compatible with similar PCIe bridges while, reportedly, delivering higher performance, lower latency, better throughput, and lower power consumption. The device's PCIe interface supports one, two, or four lanes, allowing the bridge to deliver throughput performance up to 1 Gb/s. Latency is minimized by its buffering and queuing architecture. Additionally, the device supports a maximum memory-payload size of 512 bytes. Its PCI/X Interface can operate up to 133 MHz in PCI-X mode or up to 66 MHz in PCI mode. The Tsi384 specifies a typical power consumption of 1.3W. Volume pricing starts at $19 each. TUNDRA SEMICONDUCTOR CORP., Ontario, Canada. (800) 267-7231.
