MaxLinear Inc. (NYSE: MXL), a leading provider of integrated radio frequency (RF) and mixed-signal integrated circuits for broadband communications applications, today announced it has been named an International CES Innovations 2013 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree for the MxL267 24-channel Full-Spectrum Capture (FSC™) cable receiver.
Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, engineers and members of the media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting-edge consumer electronics products across 29 product categories.
MaxLinear’s MxL267 is the first Full-Spectrum Capture device capable of simultaneously receiving any combination of 24 channels located arbitrarily inside the cable spectrum.
The CES judges recognized the impact that the MxL267 is having on the cable gateway and set-top box market, as summarized in this paragraph from the award entry:“The MxL267 deserves a CES Innovations Award because it is the key to the development of cable set-top boxes and gateways that give consumers all of the programming they want while minimizing power consumption and network maintenance costs for cable operators. The proof is in the success of the chip, which has enjoyed more than a dozen design wins by leading cable system manufacturers including ARRIS Group, Inc. in the first five months since the chip was launched.” “Our Full-Spectrum Capture technology is a significant advance in the industry, and to have that innovation honored at CES is especially gratifying because it's the biggest showcase of new and advanced products in the consumer electronics industry,” said Dr. Kishore Seendripu, president and CEO of MaxLinear. “The MxL267 has been so well received by our customers because it offers advanced features and consumes only 90mW per channel in 24-channel receive mode. It also has our powerful remote spectrum analyzer for reporting network health and performance – saving money for both the consumer and the MSO.”
