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 Sagemcom, a European leader in the set-top box market, has selected the MxL254 Full-Spectrum Capture™ (FSC™) receiver for its next-generation four-channel cable video set-top box (STB) platform.

The MxL254 features an FSC-based front-end that receives the full 1 GHz cable spectrum. The device includes four J.83 Annex A, B & C compliant QAM demodulators with transport stream outputs to an MPEG decoder SoC.

Based on MaxLinear’s industry-leading, low-power 40nm CMOS process technology, the MxL254 offers a monolithic digital cable front-end with integrated low-noise amplifier (LNA) and signal conditioning functions. The MxL254 combines the highest level of integration with the lowest power consumption in the industry. With all four video channels enabled, the chip consumes less than 1.8W.

For video, the use of FSC technology means that the device can simultaneously receive any combination of four video channels located arbitrarily in the cable spectrum.

The device also supports an integrated narrow-band, single-channel tuner for low-power, single-channel operation.

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.
