maxlinear inc-class a (MXL) Key Developments

MaxLinear Launches MxL231 and MxL235 Programmable Gain Amplifiers

MaxLinear, Inc. announced the MxL231 and MxL235 upstream programmable gain amplifiers (PGAs) for use in DOCSIS 3.0 and upcoming DOCSIS 3.1 gateways, respectively. PGAs are utilized to amplify upstream communications from DOCSIS gateways back to head-end equipment Complementing the company's popular Full-Spectrum Capture(TM) (FSC(TM)) receivers for 16-, 24-, and 32-channel DOCSIS 3.0 gateways, the MxL231 reduces front-end power dissipation by up to 1.6W compared to existing PGA offerings. As cable operators migrate from four-channel to eight-channel QAM upstream services, reducing power dissipation in the front-end simplifies thermal design efforts and reduces heat mitigation costs. Additionally, the MxL231 has a smaller footprint than existing PGA devices and requires fewer external components, thereby reducing the PCB area required for upstream amplification. Using only a single 3.3V supply, the MxL231 now allows manufactures to eliminate the 5V supply from their gateway design entirely, simplifying layout and reducing system cost. Leveraging design architecture similar to the MxL231, the MxL235 is optimized to meet the higher upstream power output required in the DOCSIS 3.1 standard. The MxL235 can deliver any combination of DOCSIS 3.0 and DOCSIS 3.1 channels up to a combined output power of 69dBmV. The MxL235 will be offered as a companion to MaxLinear's upcoming DOCSIS 3.1 FSC receivers. The MxL231 supports upstream frequencies up to 85MHz with up to eight 64-QAM upstream channels and a combined output power of up to 66dBmV. In this configuration, the device dissipates less than 1W while exceeding the adjacent channel power ratio requirements in the DOCSIS 3.0 specification. The MxL231 is compatible with all 16-, 24-, and 32-channel MaxLinear DOCSIS 3.0 Full-Spectrum Capture receivers. The MxL235 supports upstream frequencies up to 204MHz as specified in the DOCSIS 3.1 standard. The device can deliver up to 69dBmV of combined output power across any combination of QAM or OFDM upstream channels. The MxL235 is compatible with MaxLinear's upcoming DOCSIS 3.1 Full-Spectrum Capture receivers. Both the MxL231 and MxL235 run from a single 3.3V supply, further adding to the cost savings by eliminating the need for a 5V supply on gateway designs.

Maxlinear, Inc. Launches Dual-Polarity Satellite Ku-Band Down-Converter Product MxL80x

MaxLinear Inc. announced the MxL80x, dual-polarity Ku-band satellite down-conversion ICs targeted for digital and universal analog low-noise block down-converter (LNB) applications. Designed to exceed strict RF performance requirements from operators, the MxL80x devices are aimed at next-generation channel stacking and band translation LNBs, universal quad and quattro LNBs and wide-band LNBs. These advanced LNBs are essential for satellite operators to reduce system costs and deliver advanced multi-channel services over a single-cable infrastructure. The MxL80x ICs feature dual Ku-band radio-frequency inputs (10.7 GHz to 12.75 GHz) and dual wideband IF outputs (200 MHz to 2,350 MHz) to dramatically simplify the LNB front-end design. The devices integrate the complete dual-polarity Ku-band down-conversion functionality including image reject filtering, down-conversion mixers, IF amplifiers, crystal oscillator and phase locked loop, and negative bias voltage generator for external low-noise amplifiers (LNAs). With this high-level of integration, the MxL80x significantly reduces the bill of material cost and the LNB board size when compared to existing discrete solutions. In addition, single-chip integration drastically reduces performance variation across parts and temperature and eliminates the need for factory tuning of the LNB front-end. The MxL80x devices complement the MaxLinear MxL86x family of digital channel stacking system on chips (SoCs) for single and multi-feed LNB applications. The MxL862 is optimized for single-feed LNB and, combined with the wide-band MxL80x front-end, delivers a turnkey channel-stacking system solution that includes the protocol application software supporting the EN50494 and EN50607 single-cable standards. The MxL801 features wideband differential intermediate frequency (IF) outputs, the MxL802 supports wideband single-ended IF outputs, and the MxL803 features L-band single-ended IF outputs. All MxL80x devices can be configured either using an Inter-Integrated Circuit (I2C) interface or via programmable pins. The I2C configurability enables a highly optimized and flexible system solution when an MxL80x device is combined with an MxL86x SoC. MxL80x devices come with a comprehensive evaluation kit, allowing customers to exercise the complete Ku-band RF front-end from LNAs to IF with the ability to configure IF gain, LO frequency and LNA bias settings.

MaxLinear, Inc. Debuts 32-Channel DOCSIS 3.0 Full-Spectrum Capture Cable TV Receiver

MaxLinear, Inc. announced the MxL268, a 32-channel, Full-Spectrum Capture receiver for next-generation DOCSIS 3.0 cable applications. Delivering up to 1.6 Gbps throughput, the MxL268 is an ideal fit for cable operators looking to exceed speeds offered by their fiber-to-the-home competitors while maximizing investment in their existing infrastructure. With its FSC technology, the MxL268 captures the full 1 Gigahertz cable spectrum, enabling cable operators to configure their systems flexibly to meet different consumer requirements for different combinations of data speeds and number of video channels. The new device will be part of a platform demonstration with Intel at IBC 2014 in Amsterdam that combines the Intel Puma 6 32-channel DOCSIS 3.0 SoC with the MxL268 receiver in a platform bonding 32 DOCSIS 3.0 channels. The demonstration will be located in Intel's booth in Hall 14, location L20. The MxL268 is pin compatible with MaxLinear's MxL265 16-channel and MxL267 24-channel receivers, simplifying the effort of migrating designs to 32 channels. Manufacturers can reuse their investment in their Puma6 gateway designs by simply replacing the receiver with the MxL268. The receiver is capable of simultaneously receiving any combination of 32 channels located arbitrarily inside the cable spectrum. Like other MaxLinear FSC cable receivers, the MxL268 features significantly reduced power consumption for gateways and STBs, minimized PCB footprint, reduced external RF bill-of-materials, and simplified design of customer platforms requiring multiple channel access. Based on MaxLinear's industry-leading, low-power 40 nm CMOS process technology, the MxL268 offers a monolithic digital cable front-end with integrated LNA and signal conditioning functions combined with a Full-Spectrum Capture receiver. In full 32-channel receive mode of operation, the MxL268 provides up to 1.6 Gbps downstream speeds and consumes less than 75mW per channel, eliminating the need for expensive heat removal components such as fans, heat shields and heat sinks inside customer equipment. The MxL268 supports remote spectrum analyzer functions that report network health and performance parameters, which can be used by cable operators in managing and troubleshooting their networks. This innovative feature allows cable operators to avoid costly technician visits to customer homes by remotely monitoring and diagnosing potential problems with customer premises equipment. The MxL268 is compliant with Energy Star and the European Code of Conduct for Digital TV Services and Broadband Equipment requirements for both standby and operating modes. The device exceeds requirements for DOCSIS and video applications, including the stringent test scenarios under SCTE40 plant loading and impairment conditions. The device supports a serial interface to a DOCSIS 3.0 modem, and has an integrated single-channel tuner for low-power operation. The MxL268 32-channel DOCSIS 3.0 digital cable receiver is available now in a standard 7 mm x 7 mm QFN package.
