May 29, 2019 — Microchip Technology announced the eSPI to LPC bridge. The ECE1200 bridge enables developers to implement the eSPI standard in boards with legacy LPC connectors and peripherals
The ECE1200 eSPI to LPC bridge is intended to allow developers to maintain long lifecycles while supporting the eSPI bus technology that is required for new computing applications utilizing the next generation of chipsets and CPUs. To reduce risk for developers, the eSPI bus technology went through intensive validation for industrial computing applications and has been validated with several processor companies.
Designed for today’s eSPI requirements, the ECE1200 detects and supports Modern Standby mode with low standby current. The ECE1200 does not require any software.
To streamline development, the ECE1200 comes with a BIOS porting guide, schematics and a layout guide.
The ECE1200-I/LD is available today in a 40-pin VQFN package in 10,000-unit quantities.
