Intel starts shipping VoIP PCI card

Posted on Tuesday, June 13 2006 @ 22:55 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Intel started shipments of its 600SM PCI Phone Adapter VoIP card, which allows users to connect standard RJ11 compatible telephones to PCs to make calls with VoIP.
Hardware acceleration is provided by an Intel Tiger 320G chipset that supports wideband audio codecs. 600SM PCI Phone Adapters are targeted towards small to medium businesses that want a simplified VoIP system that ties in with desktop PCs.

It’s surprising to see the 600SM Phone Adapter shipping as a PCI card since Intel has been pushing PCI Express for the past two years. With newer motherboards from Intel and other manufacturers coming with fewer PCI slots it seems a PCI Express x1 based card would’ve been a more logical choice.
