Sagemcom Selects MaxLinear Full-Spectrum Capture™ Receiver for Next-Generation Multi-Channel Cable Video Set-Top Box
CARLSBAD, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
MaxLinear Inc. (NYSE: MXL), a
leading provider of integrated radio frequency (RF) and mixed-signal
integrated circuits for broadband communications applications, today
announced that Sagemcom (News - Alert), a
European leader in the set-top box market, has selected the MxL254
Full-Spectrum (News - Alert) Capture™ (FSC™) receiver for its next-generation
four-channel cable video set-top box (STB) platform.
The MxL254 features an FSC-based front-end that receives the full 1 GHz
cable spectrum. The device includes four J.83 Annex A, B & C compliant
QAM demodulators with transport stream outputs to an MPEG decoder SoC.
"We are excited that Sagemcom has selected the MxL254 for its
next-generation cable video set-top box platform," said Brian Sprague,
Vice President and General Manager for MaxLinear. "Sagemcom is
recognized for its high-performance hardware platforms and its selection
of the MxL254 underscores the outstanding performance and value of the
MaxLinear FSC technology."
Based on MaxLinear's industry-leading, low-power 40nm CMOS process
technology, the MxL254 offers a monolithic digital cable front-end with
integrated low-noise mplifier (LNA) and signal conditioning functions.
The MxL254 combines the highest level of integration with the lowest
power consumption in the industry. With all four video channels enabled,
the chip consumes less than 1.8W.
For video, the use of FSC technology means that the device can
simultaneously receive any combination of four video channels located
arbitrarily in the cable spectrum.
The device also supports an integrated narrow-band, single-channel tuner
for low-power, single-channel operation.
The MxL254 device is available for sampling and is in mass production.
