MaxLinear Reaches New Record with More than 100 Million TV Tuner IC Shipments

Latest Milestone Achieved Just 12 Months After 50 Million Announcement - Driven by Company's Successful Move into Cable and TV Set Markets

CARLSBAD, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- MaxLinear Inc., a leading provider of highly integrated radio frequency (RF) analog and mixed-signal semiconductor SoC solutions for broadband communication applications, today announced it has shipped more than 100 million TV tuner ICs. This milestone comes just 12 months after the company announced it had surpassed 50 million units shipped.

While MaxLinear has had continued great product acceptance in the ISDB-T mobile television market, this latest achievement can be attributed the company's successful penetration into the cable and terrestrial TV markets with its MxL2xx family of cable television tuners and tuner-demodulators and its MxL1xx family of low-power digital terrestrial tuners and tuner-demodulators for the next generation of small and large screen television and settop box applications.

"When MaxLinear made the decision to broaden its market, we knew that the cable and TV systems markets' need for lower power and smaller size would make these segments a great growth opportunity for MaxLinear," said Kishore Seendripu, Chief Executive Officer of MaxLinear. "This announcement represents a huge achievement for MaxLinear, as we've doubled our shipments in less than a year, proving the performance and value of our solutions."

All of MaxLinear's products are based on a standard digital CMOS architecture. MaxLinear's engineers have adapted CMOS to the high-performance demands of the TV tuner market, while leveraging the technology's small size, low power and low cost advantages.

The MxL2xx family is aimed at set-top-boxes (STBs), digital video recorders (DVRs), cable modems, EMTAs, cable gateways and cable-enabled televisions. The MxL2xx family features tuners and tuner-demodulators with integrated channel filtering and on-chip 94dB gain to deliver high quality signal reception of weak signals even under conditions of significant channel loading, severe transmission spectrum tilt, and strong adjacent digital and analog channel blockers. The MxL20xRF tuners deliver the highest performance in accordance with the ANSI/SCTE40, DOCSIS/EURODOCSIS, and ITU-T J.83 cable industry standards in only a 5 mm x 5mm, 32-pin QFN package.

The MxL1xx family is designed for high-performance digital TV applications. The MxL1xx family all include MaxLinear's market leading low power, highly integrated tuners, with built-in features such as SAW filter functions, LNAs, tracking and loop filters. The MxL1xx family supports major digital TV standards, digital terrestrial reception standards and digital cable standards for Europe, China, India and Annex B.
