Short Take: Philips offers new integrated chips

Philips Semiconductors announced integrated, single-chip devices for system configuration in computing platforms. The PCA9556 and PCA9559 are designed for use in computing platforms using the System Management Bus (SMBus) or I2C bus, to seamlessly interface the processor, chipset and peripherals. The chips eliminate the need for multiple discrete devices, saving board space and lowering system cost for desktop, server, workstation and mobile platforms. The PCA9556 and PCA9559 are available in volume production for $0.85 and $1.50, respectively, in quantities of 10,000.
