Hitron Technologies has selected the MaxLinear MxL261 digital cable multi-channel tuner-demodulator single-chip front end integrated circuit (IC) for a new line of DOCSIS 3.0 related modems, EMTAs and gateways for European cable markets.

Hitron’s CDA-30360 modem recently achieved certification from CableLabs and the CVE-30360 Voice & Data Wireless Gateway as well as the CDE-30364 Data Wireless Gateway recently achieved EuroDOCSIS certification from CableEuropeLabs in Europe. All models were designed using the MxL261 and Intel Puma 5 chipset.

The modem features a 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet and full IPv6 support. The gateways add USB host interfaces for printer server, NAS file server connectivity or future Webcam functionality. The gateways have advanced features including voice and video support, IPv6 routing including DS-Lite and 6RD support.

The MxL261 is based on MaxLinear’s low power digital CMOS process-based RF and mixed signal technology. It is a single-die, global standards, digital cable front end with integrated splitter, two 100MHz wideband tuners, four QAM demodulators, and a four-channel wide IF output. The MxL261 delivers ultra-low power at less than 175mW per channel in full eight-channel mode. The low power consumption and the power control flexibility of the chip enable compliance with Energy Star and the European Code of Conduct for Digital TV Services and Broadband Equipment for both standby and operating modes.
