US Robotics (USR) and Texas Instruments (TI) are teaming together to develop a ?hybrid? modem that supports both dial-up and rate adaptive ADSL access to networks.
The hybrid model will enable customers to operate in low cost analogue for telephony services, such as fax and voice mail, and run ADSL for bandwidth-heavy applications, instead of having to buy another modem.
The product will be available in the first half of 1998 and will be called x2/DSL. It will combine USR?s 56Kbps analogue technology with TI?s TMS320C6x digital signal processing platform, which processes 1.6 billion instructions per second.
