Legerity Launches VOIP Chips

AUSTIN, Texas -- Legerity Inc., a provider of analog/mixed-signal integrated circuits (ICs) for voice and data networks, announced today at VON 2004 the details of the VE880 Series, its newest VoiceEdge(tm) Architecture product family for network edge equipment at the customer premise. The VE880 VoicePort(tm) Series, is the world's first one channel, two channel and one-and-a-half channel telephone line interface solution to implement all BORSCHT voice functionality, from the high voltage subscriber line interface to the microprocessor digital interface.

The new VE880 VoicePort Series reduces system level cost, space and power consumption by achieving the highest levels of integration possible. Legerity's VoicePort single device solution simplifies the customer's design process by minimizing component count and providing the smallest footprint available to the industry, which dramatically lowers system BOM costs and enables the most compact designs possible. Additionally, VoicePort offers footprint compatible solutions, which enable customers to complete a single, worldwide design and populate components based on market requirements, as well as simplify inventory management.

"The VE880 VoicePort is a quantum leap above the competition, offering high feature flexibility and low power consumption in the world's most highly integrated line interface product family with the smallest physical footprint," said Rick Beale, senior director of marketing. "The VE880 Series simply makes adding voice to broadband access equipment cheaper and easier. This series, in combination with the rest of our VoiceEdge Architecture, will catapult VoIP deployment growth globally."

In a separate release:

Legerity Inc. announced today at VON 2004 the details of the VE790 Series, its new VoiceEdge(tm) Architecture product family for carrier-class applications. The VE790 analog line interface chipsets are the first ever to integrate the advanced line testing functionality necessary for carrier-class packet voice deployments. The revolutionary design of the VE790 Series dramatically reduces engineering effort and enhances performance of access infrastructure equipment and will catapult carrier deployment of the Packet Voice Network through 2004 and 2005.

The new chipset integrates sophisticated line testing functionality into the silicon, which until now was performed by expensive dedicated hardware called test heads. This integration allows for the complete elimination of expensive test heads in mid to high line count systems and provides line test functionality in low line count systems for the first time. Service providers can now solve most customer issues from the office by executing remote line test measurements, eliminating costly truck rolls and shortening the response time to the customer while dramatically saving on OPEX costs.

"The VE790 Series is truly revolutionary -- redesigned from the ground up specifically for the unique needs of packet voice deployments," said Rick Beale, senior marketing director for Legerity. The VE790 Series, for the first time, provides carriers the necessary foundation with which to build the new voice infrastructure."
