MaxLinear, a provider of integrated radio frequency (RF) and mixed-signal integrated circuits for broadband communication applications, says Hitron Technologies has selected the Maxlinear MxL261 digital cable multi-channel tuner-demodulator single-chip front end IC for a new DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem.
Hitron’s CDA-30360 modem recently achieved certification from CableLabs. The CDA-30360 is a high-speed data cable modem designed using both the MxL261 and Intel Puma 5 chipset. The modem features both 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet and USB host interfaces for future webcam, printer server or NAS file server connectivity. The modem has advanced features including voice and video support, IPv6 addressing and DES/AES data encryption to ensure complete data privacy.
“We are aggressively expanding our high-speed cable modem product line and we appreciate the flexibility that the MxL261 gives us to develop a common platform that supports our DOCSIS customers in the U.S. and our EuroDOCSIS customers in Europe,” said Jonathan Kao, director/Product Marketing of Hitron Technologies, in a statement.
