TrendChip Technologies Corp. Introduces the World’s First IAD Solution with 2-Layer Circuit Board, Seizing Business Opportunities in the NGN Telecommunications Market

June 1, 2010

HSINCHU, Taiwan, June 1 / PRNewswire-Asia/ — Leading manufacturer of xDSL
CPE chips, TrendChip Technologies Corp., announced today a series of IAD
(Integrated Access Device) solutions, seizing business opportunities brought
about by the Next Generation Network’s (NGN) conversion of traditional
analogue telephone into a fully digitalized, and IP-based model. The first
solution is TC3182P2V, a highly integrated IAD solution for voice, video, data
and wireless services. It possesses high-performance ADSL2+ and 802.11n, and
its carrier-level voice quality. The second solution is TC3182LEV. This
solution is especially designed to meet the requirements of emerging markets’
DSL-ATA (Analog Terminal Adapter). These solutions also mean that current
limitations posed by the relatively expensive 4-layer circuit boards required
by other IAD products will no longer apply, and 2-layer designs can be used
directly, bringing IAD products into the new age of “being expensive in look,
but not in price.”

TrendChip Technologies Corp. has used the powerful processing core,
MIPS(R) 34Kc, 2 Virtual Processing Elements (VPE), and the multi-threading
system structure, in this series of IAD solutions, achieving not only the
excellent network performance of wired speed, but also enabling IAD to
maintain high definition quality in its voice signals even under high network
traffic, thus ensuring the Quality of Service (QoS). At the same time, these
solutions are compatible with RADVision(R) SIP (Session Initiation Protocol),
which is the most common in the industry and has full interoperability. The
solutions also offer voice compression coding formats, such as G.711, G.723,
G.729, and G.722, in order to satisfy the requirements of different
telecommunications specifications.

These IAD solutions include 2 types, TC3182P2V and TC3182LEV. The first
type, TC3182P2V, fully complies with the highly-integrated IAD specifications
required by telecommunications markets in the world. Its key functions and
characteristics are:

    -- Leading the market in using the 2-layer circuit board as the reference
       design, which effectively lowers the system costs and shortens the time
       frame required for mass production
    -- Uses PCIe interface to connect with 11n WiFi chips, offering real 11n
       WiFi performance. It can also carry WiFi chips through RGMII, offering
       dual-band, 2.4GHz and 5GHz, to transfer data and video separately,
       providing IAD products with more powerful functions and higher
       flexibility to wireless users
    -- Supports 2 USB interfaces, and can offer value-added services easily,
       such as the Internet, FTP sever, and home security surveillance
    -- Offers RADVision (R) SIP, which is the most common in the industry, and
       has full interoperability, in order to satisfy different
       telecommunications specifications.
    -- Uses PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) interface to provide VoIP's FXS and
       FXO functions, and offers voice-related parameter setting interface,
       using the same hardware platform to meet the requirements of different
       voice standards. It also provides different voice compression coding
       formats, such as G.711, G.723, G.729, and G.722.
    -- Carries the Gigabit RGMII interface, which can be connected externally
       to the network switch, TC2205F, which is a Trendchip grade equivalent.
       It can also carry the GbE Switch, which can avoid bottlenecks when
       transferring files between home computers
    -- Offers complete remote management and detection industry standards
       defined by Broadband Forum, including TR-069, TR-098, TR-111, and
       TR-143

The second type, TC3182LEV, is especially designed for the requirements of
emerging markets’ DSL-ATA. Their key functions and characteristics are:

    -- Compatible with LQFP 128-pin packaging and the reference design of
       2-layer circuit boards, in order to satisfy DSL-ATA's requirement for a
       small and handy look
    -- A 10/100M Fast Ethernet PHY is built internally, which complies with
       the IEEE 802.3az industry standard, that is, Energy Efficient Ethernet
       (EEE). At the same time, it can also detect network cable length and
       unused network ports automatically for the purpose of power management.
    -- Offers RADVision (R) SIP, which is the most common in the industry, and
       has full interoperability, in order to satisfy different
       telecommunications specifications.
    -- Uses PCM interface to provide VoIP's FXS and FXO functions. It also
       offers voice-related parameter setting interface, using
       the same hardware platform to meet the requirements of different voice
       standards. It also provides different voice compression coding formats,
       such as G.711, G.723, G.729, and G.722.
    -- Offers complete remote management and detection industry standards
       defined by Broadband Forum, including TR-069, TR-098, TR-111, and
       TR-143

“Telecommunications providers in the world continue to invest in building
the next generation network, and traditional analogue telephone is gradually
becoming digitalized and IP-based, which will also drive the trend towards
voice, video and data for ADSL access equipment. Currently, IAD products
already constitute 20-25% of the entire ADSL CPE market. We believe that there
will be another wave of growth starting the second half of this year. This
will be especially significant in China’s telecommunications market,” Bomin
Wang
, President, said, “Fostered by the continuing policy of triple networks
convergence in China, telecommunications operators will encounter pressure
from cable TV operators competing in the broadband market. Hence,
telecommunications operators must pick up speed in introducing IAD products,
in order to offer Triple-Play services to maintain their competitiveness. The
solutions offered by TrendChip can satisfy both the highly-integrated IAD
market, as well as the entry-level DSL-ATA market, enabling telecommunications
system providers to deliver IAD products with the best price performance
within the shortest time frame.”

Bomin Wang also said, “As the TC3182 solution is very competitive, and has
the advantage of being compatible with IAD specifications of operator tenders,
market response to this product has been overwhelming. Several
telecommunications customers have already used this solution to develop a
series of new IAD products, and the target release date will be in the third
quarter of this year.”
