Southbridge Chip Sets Vaidated For PCI Express Operation

The SiS965, SiS965L, SiS966, and SiS966L Southbridge chip sets have passed recent PCI Express compatibility validation. Performed by Silicon Integrated Systems in conjunction with fabless IC company JMicron, the validation tests yielded fully satisfactory results.

The four SiS Southbridge chip sets are compatible with Intel-based and AMD-based platforms. They operate with front-side bus speeds of up to 533 MHz. All of the sets include X1/2 PCI Express lanes. Also, they support two or four Serial ATA (SATA) 150 ports and two or four SATA AHCI ports.

These chip sets include most other Southbridge functions, like AC'97 audio, USB 2.0 ports, PCI parallel support, RAID support, and 10/100 or 10/100/1000 Ethernet local-area network ports. Samples are immediately available. Contact the company for volume pricing.
