MaxLinear Announces Availability Of MxL278 - Quick Facts

MaxLinear Inc. (MXL) announced the availability of the MxL278, its industry-leading 28nm CMOS single-chip DOCSIS 3.1 digital cable front-end receiver based on the company's proprietary Full-Spectrum Capture or FSC technology, and the MxL236 programmable gain amplifier for new generations of DOCSIS 3.1 gateways.

In conjunction with the latest DOCSIS 3.1 Intel cable SoC platform, cable MSOs will be able to offer their subscribers multi-gigabit-per-second data bandwidth services on existing coaxial cable network infrastructure. The ever-increasing consumer demand for media and over-the-top or OTT data content is creating enormous downstream bandwidth demand in gateway devices to enable expanded services at home.

The company said the DOCSIS 3.1 standard addresses the need for higher data bandwidth services with the addition of high capacity orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing or OFDM channels over the existing cable network.

As cable operators offer greater bandwidth services to meet consumer demand for content, MaxLinear's proprietary FSC technology replaces the need for several discrete single-channel cable tuners in a gateway or a set-top box with just one broadband multi-channel receiver.

Further, the company said that the MxL278 can receive up to 5Gbps with any combination of channels located arbitrarily inside the cable spectrum. As a result, MaxLinear's FSC cable receivers significantly reduce the power consumption in a gateway or a set-top box, minimize PCB footprint, eliminate expensive external RF components, and simplify design of customer platforms requiring multiple channel access.
