TI Announces Availability Of PCI Express-To-PCI Bridge
TI announces another addition to its PCI Express product line with the availability of a new PCI Express-to-PCI Bridge. The XIO2000 allows bridging between legacy PCI devices to the latest PCI Express applications used in PCs, docking stations, ExpressCard, split-chassis systems, and test and measurement instruments.
TI's new bridge device (XIO2000) is fully compliant to the PCI Express to PCI/PCI-X Bridge Specification, Revision 1.0 and also supports longer trace lengths, allowing designers to support longer distance PCI Express endpoint devices without the loss of signal strength.
The device has a x1 lane upstream port connection to PCI Express root complex, providing support for up to six x1 PCI endpoint devices on its downstream side. By using TI's XIO2000 customers are now able to expand one x1 PCI Express lane to support up to six devices.
The XIO2000 PCI Express-to-PCI Bridge is available now from TI and its authorized distributors. The XIO2000 comes in a 201-pin Microstar BGATM package. Suggested resale pricing in quantities of 1,000 starts at $14.95.
