LAS VEGAS and MILPITAS, Calif. -- Sigma Designs® ( NASDAQ : SIGM ), a leading provider of system-on-chip (SoC) solutions for home entertainment, connectivity and converging multimedia delivery, today announced its new breakthrough CG5200 family of G.hn chipsets. The CG5200 family which includes the CG5210, CG5220 and CG5230 provides optimized functionality, performance and cost structure for a variety of market needs and enables superior networked entertainment performance and throughput for seamless, high-quality distribution of Triple Play and IPTV over all three household wires: power line, coax and phone line. G.hn technology offers a single standard for connecting networked devices over any existing wired infrastructure (power-line, coax and phone-line). Sigma Designs' CG5200 family ensures unprecedented levels of G.hn consistency and reliability, making it the ideal solution for embedding into G.hn-enabled consumer electronics devices, gateways and set-top boxes for whole-home networking of multiple HD and 3DTV video streams. The chipsets are optimized for multimedia distribution and IPTV applications to deliver multiple streams of HDTV video content, 3DTV video traffic, audio content, VoIP, data, gaming and other applications that are highly QoS-sensitive. This 2nd generation G.hn family of chipsets draws on the broad experience and learning accumulated from multiple lab and field trials executed with operators and OEMs. "Complying with the latest G.hn MIMO standard, the CG5200 family of G.hn chipsets is a major step forward for consumers, manufacturers and service providers," said Gabi Hilevitz, Sigma Designs' vice president and general manager Home Connectivity business unit. "End users will now be able to enjoy a superior experience regardless of which connection method they choose to employ. The CG5200 series is also a major win for manufacturers, who can now offer single product with unmatched performance over any wired system at an optimized cost meeting specific application and market requirements. By using G.hn, service providers can enjoy substantial economies in the costs of support and installation services through this technology's intrinsic remote management capabilities."
