Silicon and software solutions boost performance and functionality of dial-up modems across Hewlett-Packard’s PC product line

MILPITAS, Calif., Jan. 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — LSI Corporation (NYSE: LSI) today announced that it has been selected by Hewlett-Packard (NYSE: HPQ) to supply dial-up modem silicon and software solutions for use across their PC product line. HP has chosen the LSI(TM) SV92 series of soft modems that offer PCI Express, USB, high-definition audio and PCI interfaces, providing HP with maximum design flexibility. When coupled with the LSI CSP1040 line-side codec, each of these interfaces provides a complete solution that avoids the costs and complexities of expensive transformers, relays and optocouplers.

“Anyone who travels extensively or has experienced inadequate broadband coverage understands why dial-up modems will be around for a long time,” said Surinder Rai, marketing director, Networking Components Division, LSI. “We’re extremely pleased to be the PC modem supplier to Hewlett-Packard, the world’s largest PC vendor.”

The LSI CSP1040 is a system-powered data access arrangement, thus insulated from the performance degradation that can result from low loop current conditions that sometimes occur on long telephone wires. LSI modem solutions also provide a complete complement of high-demand, high-value end user features such as wake-on-ring, caller ID and ultra-low standby power mode.

In addition to PC modem solutions, LSI also supplies controller-based, controller-less and soft modem solutions for multi-function printers, fax machines, point-of-sale terminals and television set-top boxes.
