Controllerless Windows-only ISA PnP V.90/K56Flex Chipset
Usage: To find other modems in the same chipset Family.
All drivers, downloads & info on this site are found via the modem.
Each Modem Manufacturers’ page also has external web-links, where available.
- This was introduced by Rockwell (30 May 1997) & discontinued by Conexant (27 Jun 2000). Upgrading an original (Rockwell) driver to a Conexant driver will introduce a name-change which will mean that the modem in Dial-Up Networking Properties (General page) will also need changing. The original chipsets were K56FlexTM & Data/Fax/TAM only. V.90 & Speakerphone were added later.
Rockwell/Conexant provide the twin-chip modem Device-Set; the OEM provides the DAA/Telephone handset which interfaces to the MDP. It is the combination of MDP & DAA which decides available country regions.
The ISA Bus is a poor choice for any soft modem in a 32-bit OS. It is 16-bits wide, which means constant thunking up/down in any system interaction (as opposed to pure data-transfer). This is obviously not such an issue with this half-soft modem as it is, as one example, with the Motorola ISA SM56.
The chipset contains a DSP (Digital Signal Processor) chip, but Controller functions are enacted within software.
A last-time-buy notice was given on 27 Jun 2000 (Order #101117A).

Mfc: the company no longer makes/supplies modems and/or their chipsets, or has been taken over, or otherwise fallen into commercial Tophet.
Modem: it is no longer in production.
Chip, Chipset, Family or Family-Type: it is no longer produced at the Foundry.
In short, the item marked with a † has shuffled off this mortal coil, it has gone to meet it’s maker, to sing with the choir invisible; it is, not to put too fine a point upon it, an ex-modem (-Mfc, -Chip, -Chipset, -Family or -Type).
Site Info, History & Page Stats
These pages are a LAMP-development of the original Modem-Help, UK site (most of the old HTML pages still exist, but havn’t been updated for quite some time). That site, in it’s turn, was a transfer from the first html site on free-pages at Freeserve (sadly, now gone). The current format allows superb search facilities, customisation by Registered members, plus is quick ‘n’ easy to update.
Diligently put together in the UK by Alex Kemp. All efforts have been taken to ensure the veracity of what is written - if you know of any errors or omissions then please let us know.
