CARLSBAD, Calif. -- 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 MxL683 ISDB-T tuner-demodulator is at the heart of a new, low-cost USB dongle reference design that brings digital broadcast high-definition (HD) TV to consumers throughout Latin America.

The dongle can be used as an add-on for pay TV satellite and IPTV operators, or over-the-top (OTT) Internet video service providers, helping these companies deliver popular broadcast content while keeping set-top box (STB) costs low.

The new dongle design also enables free-to-air HD broadcast channels to be delivered to PCs, tablet computers or Netbooks that have a USB port. In addition, the reference design is cost effective for use as a PCI Express (PCIe) module for Netbooks in educational applications, which have recently been funded by several governments in the region. The MaxLinear turnkey reference design consists of an ultra-compact form-factor USB dongle integrating the MxL683 ISDB-T receiver with a USB2.0 interface. The design package includes schematics, PCB layout files, a complete bill of materials (BOM), software drivers and test reports.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
