Intellon said that the device uses a new architecture and lower process geometry to reduce the total bill of material cost. The device also has a faster processor, reconfigured internal bus structure, faster memory bus and a multi-chip module package that includes both a MAC/PHY transceiver and an analog front-end. The IC has MII (Ethernet) and PCI host interfaces, and does not require external flash memory for boot-from-host applications.

The INT6300 is shipping in production volumes now.
