"Asynchronous transfer"...

We see from your search that you're looking for information on the term "Asynchronous transfer", and we have a large number of manufacturers' news releases and technical articles here on Electronicstalk which will be of interest. Let me be your guide.

Start with the news release PCI bridge chips include super-fast UARTs from Oxford Semiconductor, which we summarised at the time by saying "These bridge chips offer tuneable FIFO trigger levels, automated Xon/Xoff in-band and hardware out-of-band flow control and a clock prescaler". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Report defines switch to Ethernet-based networks from DSL Forum: "A new technical report defines an architecture to seamlessly migrate asynchronous transfer mode legacy DSL aggregation networks to next generation Ethernet-based networks".

In January 2006, we covered the news from Amino Communications - take a look at Amino acquires video codec specialist which says: "Amino Technologies, the Cambridge based broadband network software and systems company, has acquired SJ Consulting for a total consideration of GBP 1.3 million".

Take a look also at the news release from Agere Systems, Huawei opts for wireless platform, as well as DSL router brings video to the home from Texas Instruments (April 2001-March 2006), and DSPs and network processors in DSL systems from Agere Systems.
