Legacy Salvation Comes With Industry’s First Commercial eSPI to LPC Bridge

Microchip Technology unveils what it claims is the industry’s first commercially available eSPI to LPC bridge. Dubbed the ECE1200, the device enables developers to implement the eSPI standard while preserving large investments in legacy low-pin-count (LPC) equipment.

The ECE1200 eSPI to LPC bridge maintains long lifecycles while supporting the eSPI bus technology that is required for emerging computing applications built on 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 leading processor companies.

The bridge detects and supports Modern Standby mode with low standby current. It is said to be simple to implement and does not require any software. To streamline development, the ECE1200 comes with a BIOS porting guide, schematics, and a layout guide.
