Manufacturers of PCs and MAC peripherals no longer need to worry about writing different drivers for multiple peripheral connections whether Ethernet or USB when implementing the KL5KUSB121 10/100 Base-T USB-Ethernet controller. The chip has a highly integrated 16-bit RISC CPU, mask ROM and RAM buffer coupled with serial, external memory and SPORT interfaces. It easily converts USB to Ethernet. The chip's internal processor enables a remote network device interface specification that provides compatibility with next-generation operating systems and faster data transfers. Its serial interface engine is compatible with all USB specifications.
The controller is well suited for LAN, Home Area Network, cable modem, set-top boxes or mobile networking applications. Pricing is $10.59 each/1,000.
