Xecom unveils low-cost modem for embedded systems
The XE2422H Reduces the Total Cost of Modem Ownership .

Xecom, Inc., a specialist in communications for embedded systems, today announced the XE2422H, low cost modem module. The XE2422H offers dial-up communications at 300, 1200 and 2400 bits per second and supports alarm industry Pulse and FSK signaling. The XE2422H is a complete modem packaged as a compact, surface-mount Leadless Chip Carrier (LCC) module. It targets applications such as point-of-sale terminals, set-top boxes and security systems needing reliable, low cost communications.

With the XE2422H Xecom has addressed the many costs of adding a modem into an embedded system. These include design and manufacturing costs, overhead and the cost of the modem itself. The XE2422H lowers design costs by virtue of being a complete modem and includes transferable FCC Part 68 Registration. Eliminating these design and qualification tasks also provides the opportunity to shorten the development time and accelerate the payoff. The XE2422H substantially reduces the number of components to be sourced, kitted and placed thus lowering assembly and overhead costs. Because XE2422H production is 100 percent tested before shipment, quality also improves. With all of that added value, the purchase price of the XE2422H, at under $8.00 in quantities of 100,000 pieces, approaches the cost of the components alone.

?The XE2422H provides the lowest total cost for placing a modem into an embedded system,? said Steve Clary, Xecom Vice President of Marketing. ?Not only have we reduced the volume price to under ten dollars, but we continue to offer the traditional Xecom savings in development, assembly, and overhead by offering the XE2422H as a complete, tested and transferable FCC Registered modem.?

Although designed to provide a low-cost solution, the XE2422H is a full-featured modem. The XE24222H includes Handset Interrupt, and Connect Detect allowing the modem to discreetly share the telephone line with other equipment. The XE2422H also offers the lowest power consumption of any complete modem module drawing just 15 milliamps from 3.3 Volts during normal data transfer

Applications
The XE2422H provides a low-cost modem solution for those applications with small amounts of data to transfer including point-of-sale terminals, vending machines, alarm panels, and set-top boxes.

Price and Delivery
Samples are available now with production to begin in four weeks. Pricing for the XE2422H is under eight dollars in volumes of 100,000 units.
