LSI Expands StarPro Portfolio

LAS VEGAS -- LSI Corporation (NYSE:LSI) today announced two new additions to the StarPro(TM) Media Processor family -- the SP2603 and SP2612. These new media gateway system-on-a-chip (SOC) solutions offer lower power consumption per voice channel, and video transcoding for new mobile video and enterprise collaboration services. They enable manufacturers to build more cost-effective, high-density platforms that support advanced voice services and video processing in a wide range of network environments. The complete system solution includes a comprehensive software development environment and leading voice, fax and video codecs supporting H.263, H.264 and MPEG-4 standards.

LSI has created a media gateway architecture to meet the demands of high-density voice and video applications. The solution is scalable up to 12 DSP cores per chip, providing a single platform for a wide range of applications from entry-level multi-service business gateways through wireless carrier-class media gateways. All SOCs are equipped with embedded CPUs, on-board memory for voice applications and carrier-class packet processing engines to support advanced QoS and traffic management.

"With these additions to their StarPro portfolio, LSI has delivered an impressive architecture that will enable the industry to develop new high-density media gateways," said Will Strauss, principal analyst with Forward Concepts. "The industry trend of implementing media gateways for 3G and 4G cellular bodes well for LSI because of their extensive cellular infrastructure base."
