MaxLinear Demonstrates World’s First Full-Spectrum Capture™ Multi-Screen Terrestrial Technology At CES

CES – MaxLinear Inc. (NYSE: MXL), a leading provider of integrated radio frequency (RF) and mixed-signal integrated circuits for broadband communications applications, announced today it will demonstrate its breakthrough terrestrial Full-Spectrum Capture (FSC™) frontend technology at CES with live multi-channel reception of over the air (OTA) digital terrestrial television signals.

The introduction of FSC technology for terrestrial applications enables television and set-top box (STB) manufacturers to offer a truly novel end-user experience with near-instantaneous channel change, time-shifted viewing and multi-screen display without the cost, power and size penalty of discrete solutions.

The CES demonstration will showcase simultaneous reception of four separate RF channels from over the air (OTA) digital terrestrial broadcast stations in the Las Vegas area with simultaneous display on a TV, PC, tablet and mobile phone.

MaxLinear’s FSC technology enables digitization of the entire terrestrial broadcast or cable frequency spectrum rather than filtering out individual channels. This technology allows simultaneous tuning to any number of channels available within the broadcast spectrum by devices within a household.

MaxLinear’s FSC technology provides TV manufacturers, pay TV operators, installers and end-users with a spectrum analyzer function that can be utilized to identify potential interferers like LTE and FM broadcast signals for active avoidance. It also enables the implementation of ultra-fast smart-channel scan solutions by identifying active and vacant channels.

“MaxLinear is leading the industry with Full-Spectrum Capture front end solutions for cable and satellite applications,” said Brian Sprague, Vice President and General Manager, Broadband and Consumer Products at MaxLinear. “Applying this technology to our terrestrial front ends is a quantum leap forward for the industry, which will enable multi-channel user experience on terrestrial TV systems.”

MaxLinear’s terrestrial FSC™ technology is standard independent and supports all global terrestrial and cable digital TV standards.

Mass production of the frontend tuner IC used in the demonstration is planned for 2015.
