CARLSBAD, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May. 21, 2012--
MaxLinear, Inc. (NYSE: MXL), a leading provider of integrated radio
frequency (RF) and mixed-signal integrated circuits for broadband
communications applications, today announced that its MxL265 / MxL267
Full Spectrum Capture™ 16- and 24-channel cable receivers are used in
new DOCSIS 3.0 cable gateway reference designs based on the Intel® Puma™
The announcement was made today at The Cable Show 2012 in Boston, where
Intel is previewing the Intel Puma 6 for the first time. The MxL265
and MxL267 were announced in March and are now sampling. Several
cable set-top box and gateway system manufacturers will also show
products based on devices from the two companies.
“MaxLinear’s long-standing collaboration with Intel has resulted in
several generations of advanced DOCSIS products on the market today.
We’re glad to be working with Intel and the Intel® Puma™ 6 to help bring
to market the next generation of these systems,” said Dr. Kishore
Seendripu, MaxLinear President and CEO.
“With the Intel Puma 6 and our relationship with MaxLinear, Intel is
able to help OEMs deliver products to service providers that offer
exciting new high-bandwidth Internet, television, gaming, and
application experiences to consumers,” said Ran Senderovitz, General
Manager, Gateway Solutions, Intel Service Provider Division. “With our
new technology, service providers will be able to serve more people with
more bandwidth over their HFC networks, enabling new consumer
The Intel Puma 6 is Intel’s newest gateway solution and achieves 1Gbps
downstream speeds by bonding up to 24 DOCSIS channels. Intel Puma 6 has
an upload speed that is double the speed of current-generation DOCSIS
modems. With up to 240Mbps upstream (8 bonded channels), more consumers
will be able to benefit from new services like video conferencing, cloud
storage and easy sharing.
MaxLinear’s MxL265 and MxL267 feature Full Spectrum Capture (FSC™)
technology that receives the full 1 Gigahertz (GHz) cable spectrum at
once. FSC provides bandwidth deployment flexibility to cable operators
so they can migrate to high-capacity DOCSIS 3.0 gateways and hybrid or
IP-based set-top boxes (STBs). MaxLinear’s Full-Spectrum Capture
technology reduces the number of tuners needed from several to just one,
thereby reducing power consumption and occupying less space in the
gateway or set-top box.
