Tundra PCI Express Bridge and Alogics PCI One Chip Decoder Selected by I-View Communication for High Performance Video Surveillance Capture Card

    Tundra Semiconductor's Tsi381 PCI to PCIe Bridge Combined with Alogics
    APC-915 PCI Decode and Bridge Offers Superior Performance and Video
    Quality for I-View's Capture Card

    OTTAWA, June 2 /CNW Telbec/ - Tundra Semiconductor Corporation
(TSX: TUN), a global leader in System Interconnect, and Alogics, a leading
video security and surveillance solution provider, have been selected by
I-View Communication Inc. (I-View), a leader in digital video recording (DVR)
for security and surveillance systems, to provide PCI Express(R) (PCIe)
Bridges and PCI One Chip Decoders to enable I-View's PCIe DVR video capture
cards for next generation surveillance systems.
    The I-View PCIe video capture card combines the high performance APC-915
from Alogics, and the reliable x1 PCIe bridging capability of Tundra's
Tsi381(TM) PCIe Bridge. The combined APC-915/Tsi381 solution offered I-View
maximum video throughput performance over the PCIe interface, enabling
I-View's video capture card to produce the highest video quality for their
    "We evaluated a number of PCIe to PCI bridges for the DVR capture card
and selected the Tundra Tsi381 for its superior performance, quality and
reliability," said James Ou, Sales Manager, I-View. "We were able to easily
integrate the Tsi381 with Alogics APC-915, enabling us to achieve
significantly better performance than any other solution. This performance
advantage allowed us to quickly bring to market a product that provides our
customers the best video quality and frame rate."
    When combined in video capture card designs, Tundra's Tsi381 and Alogics
APC-915, improve system performance by maximizing the video data bandwidth
over the PCI Express bus. This in turn increases the frames per second ratio
and results in optimum image resolution and frame rates in the surveillance
    "Working closely with Tundra's world-class support team allowed us to
ensure that the combined Alogics APC-915 and Tsi381 PCIe Bridge provided the
highest quality, best performance solution to get I-View's video surveillance
design to market quickly," said Jung Sam Park, Vice President, Alogics.
    "Tundra has built its long-standing reputation on the quality and
reliability of the products we deliver, and on the world-class customer
support that accompanies every interconnect product we ship. I-View's use of
our new Tsi381 PCIe Bridge demonstrates both the quality of this high
performance part under demanding operating conditions, and the support of our
expert technical team," said Tracy Richardson, Vice President Marketing,
Tundra Semiconductor. "Our customers continue to confirm that our high
performance Tsi381 PCIe Bridge is both low-risk and easy to integrate into
their existing designs."
