MaxLinear Full-Spectrum Capture™ Receivers, Delivering Up To 1Gbps Speeds, Adopted Into More Than 12 Cable Gateway And Set-top Box Designs

Stocks in this article: MXL

MaxLinear Inc., (NYSE: MXL) a leading provider of integrated, radio frequency (RF) and mixed-signal integrated circuits for broadband communications applications, today announced that its industry-leading Full-Spectrum Capture (FSC TM) digital cable front-end receivers have been adopted into more than 12 video gateway and set-top box designs at major manufacturers in the U.S., Europe and Asia.

“Video gateway and set-top box markets are evolving rapidly as cable providers strive to meet burgeoning consumer demand for bandwidth and content,” said Brian Sprague, MaxLinear’s Vice President and General Manager for Broadband and Consumer Products. “MaxLinear’s growing family of FSC receivers facilitates more efficient distribution of video and IP services, faster download speeds, lower power, and lower cost designs. We are looking forward to supporting our customers’ deployments at the end of this year.”

MaxLinear’s family of FSC receivers enables cable operators to meet the ever-increasing consumer demand for rich multimedia and data through flexible deployment of downstream bandwidth while migrating to high-capacity DOCSIS 3.0 voice and IP data gateways, video gateways, and hybrid or IP-based set-top boxes.

By delivering up to 1 Gigabits per second (Gbps) of data reception capability, the FSC receivers enable cable operators to compete against telecom carriers that have recently announced 300Mbps of Internet service offerings. Each FSC device replaces several discrete single-channel cable tuners in a gateway or a set-top box with just one broadband multi-channel receiver.

Announced in March of this year, MaxLinear’s MxL265 and MxL267 FSC receivers are optimized for cable voice and data modem applications, while the MxL256 and MxL258 receivers are optimized for video gateway applications.

The MxL265 and 267 receivers can simultaneously receive any combination of 16 or 24 channels, respectively, located anywhere in the cable spectrum, to deliver up to 1Gbps downstream data speeds in data applications. The MxL256 and MxL258 FSC receivers, each of which includes integrated on-chip QAM demodulators optimized for cable video, can simultaneously receive six or eight channels, respectively, located arbitrarily in the cable spectrum.
