Microtune says it has shipped more than 7.5 million wideband tuners for use in DOCSIS 3.0-based devices. Cable equipment suppliers have built their DOCSIS 3.0 equipment around Microtune’s MT2170 wideband tuner and its companion product, the MT1570 wideband upstream amplifier.

All leverage channel-bonding techniques to achieve downstream data rates of 160 Mbps or higher, with the potential to deliver a range of new Internet protocol services.
