ASIX Electronics buys MosChip assets

ASIX Electronics Corp has acquired the business line of I/O connectivity, including all assets and intellectual property rights, from India-based MosChip Semiconductor Technology Ltd. The acquisition enhances ASIX's portfolio of embedded networking and connectivity products by adding single, multi-port Serial, Parallel, Ethernet, VGA, and IrDA connectivity for various computer and peripheral equipment with PCI Express (PCIe), Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) and USB host interface.


The I/O connectivity products include three series: MCS99xx PCIe bridge controllers, MCS98xx PCI bridge controllers and MCS78xx/MCS77xx USB bridge controllers. For chip-to-chip or system-to-system connections, these controllers provide cost effective, standards compliant, and high-performance embedded system applications, such as remote access servers, storage network management, data acquisition systems, point-of-sale (POS) terminals, handheld devices, set-top box, digital TVs, industrial control and building automation equipment.

The PCIe bridge series, MCS99xx, provide a single-chip, PCI Express x1 (single-lane) to a peripheral controller with support for single and multi-port Serial, Parallel, VGA, ISA and USB interfaces. PCIe is an interconnection system based on the PCI standard connecting a microprocessor to attached devices for high-speed operation. The electrical and mechanical interfaces of PCIe are not compatible with the PCI bus interface. This bus also provides a high-speed 2.5GBs data rate.

The PCI bridge series, MCS98xx, provide OEMs low cost solutions for developing products that bring single and multi-port Parallel, Serial and ISA devices to the market place. PCI is an interconnection system between a microprocessor and attached devices. The MCS98xx supports 3.3/5V PCI bus signaling specifications at full 33 MHz clock speed and allows direct interface to the system bus, delivering a significant reduction in board space requirements.

The USB bridge series, MCS78xx/MCS77xx provides OEM customers and end users an instant, no-hassle way to connect existing devices to next generation computer peripherals. By providing bridging solutions, ASIX can incorporate support for legacy devices such as Serial, Parallel and IrDA as well as advancing the next generation of USB technologies.
