Virata Corp. has announced the availability of its new Azurite VoIP chipset, which the vendor says could help customers reduce design cycles from a typical 12-18 months to an estimated 3-6 months.

The chipset, which combines a Helium or Nitrogen communications processor and software with a magnesium DIP and voice software, is designed to meet the needs of all CPE markets, including consumer, small office/home office, small/medium enterprise, and enterprise.

The Helium chip is fully integrated with a VoIP protocol software suite that handles IP signaling, QoS support, real-time encapsulation and reporting, ATM, frame, routing, bridging, and SNMP management.

Both the Helium and Nitrogen families support all interfaces required for the VoIP device market, such as 10/100 Ethernet, HomePNA, home power-line, and home wireless.

With the incorporation of quality of service (QoS) algorithms, the Azurite VoIP solution prioritizes voice over data when needed, handles fragmentation of large IP packets, and minimizes processing and transmission delays.

It also ensures controlled IP packet delivery through advanced dynamic jitter buffer design, and accommodates lost packets through patent-pending lost packet compensation.
