Well Communication Corp. announces CNR solutions with numerous options for PC manufacturers

Taipei, Taiwan, August 17, 2011 - Well Communication Corp., a leading supplier of network communication in Taiwan, today announced that it is working with Intel Corporation in the development of a line of Communication and Networking Riser (CNR) adapter products. Well Communication Corp., well known for its commitment to high quality, competitive price, and satisfying service, will carry the same level of commitment to the CNR family.

CNR is an interface specification designed by Intel for ATX family motherboards. The new riser solution is designed to reduce the cost to PC-OEMs of implementing LAN, modem and audio subsystems. The CNR specification defines a scalable motherboard riser card interface that supports home networking, 10/100 Ethernet LAN, DSL, wireless, multichannel audio, and broadband. CNR is an open industry specification to allow the industry to benefit from the integration of different technologies/ features into Chipsets, motherboard SKU reduction, and lower the complexity of homologation process for MB and OEMs. The specification defines the CNR architecture for both standard and low-profile risers and includes electrical, mechanical, and thermal requirements of the riser interface.

Well's CNR adapters with Conexant and SmartLink advanced software technology, not only supports audio and V.90 analog modem, but also contributes a means for providing a solution of Home networking or 10/100 Ethernet LAN. In addition, by the application of serial EEPROM, CNR offers PNP function that allows you to separate certification requirements from the motherboard. With the added functionality and the superior hardware-integration design, a system manufacturer has several motherboard acceleration options available as well as expandability for future technologies.
