CARLSBAD, Calif. -- MaxLinear Inc. (MXL), a leading provider of integrated radio frequency (RF) and mixed-signal integrated circuits for broadband communications applications, announced today that Mitsumi Corp. has started mass production shipments of its latest generation of six-channel “time shift” TV network interface modules (NIM) for use in Japanese televisions based on MaxLinear’s MxL683.

The time-shift technology is an advanced DVR feature that lets consumers automatically record all of the programs on their six favorite broadcast TV channels within a rolling 15-day period. The time-shift feature allows users more time to watch their favorite TV shows without setting their TV to record a specific show. The time-shift feature is combined with regular DVR capability that allows TV viewers to designate particular shows for recording.

MaxLinear’s MxL683 integrates MaxLinear’s state-of-the-art RF tuner with a best-in-class ISDB-T demodulator in a single CMOS chip. The MxL683 provides excellent RF signal reception and digital TV signal demodulation performance due to the optimized on-chip interface and signal processing partitioning between the tuner and demodulator blocks.

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.
