New LVC Family of Logic From QSI; QSI Now Offers 19 New 3.3-Volt LVC/LVCH Devices to Round Out Its Other Logic Product Lines.SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 17, 1998--Quality Semiconductor Inc. (QSI)(Nasdaq:QUAL QUAL Quality
QUAL Qualification ) announced today the availability of 19 new 3.3-volt high-performance LVC/LVCH devices.
These new devices are the latest in a series of advanced logic devices that have been introduced by QSI. LVC logic is the industry standard 3.3-volt logic family.
QSI plans to add 25 additional devices to the family over the next year. The current offering consists of octal and 16-bit bus interface functions such as buffers, transceivers, and registers. The LVC family is a natural addition to the current LCX, LCXPlus and FCT logic families offered by QSI.
The LVC devices are ideally suited for 3.3-volt applications such as laptop computers and portable equipment. The 5-volt tolerant inputs and outputs allow interfacing in a mixed-voltage environment, such as data processing, telecommunications, networking and mass storage applications. All of the LVC devices offered by QSI are also ideal for hot-docking and hot-swapping applications.
"As equipment is designed to operate at lower voltages, the 3.3-volt logic market continues to grow faster than other logic markets," according to Richard Nedinsky, QSI's logic marketing manager. "LVC offers the design engineer the best price/performance advantage in today's cost driven market."
The 8-bit functions are available in SOIC (Small Outline IC) A small-dimension, plastic, rectangular, surface mount chip package that uses gull-wing pins extending outward. See gull-wing lead, SOJ and chip package. , space saving QSOP QSOP Quarter Size Outline Package
