LAS VEGAS -- International CES Booth 25829 -- Entropic Communications, Inc. (Nasdaq:ENTR), a leading provider of silicon solutions to enable connected home entertainment, today announced the introduction of its third generation c.LINK solution for MoCA home networking, the EN2510. Entropic's award-winning c.LINK technology is already deployed in millions of homes to deliver high throughput capable of handling multiple streams of HD video with operator levels of robustness and quality of service. The newest c.LINK solution, the EN2510, is fully compliant with the latest MoCA 1.1 specification, DLNA interoperable and adds a number of performance and feature enhancements over previous c.LINK solutions.

A single chip MoCA solution, Entropic's EN2510 is the first c.LINK product to integrate the baseband MAC/PHY, analog front-end and the RF transceiver into a small 15x15 mm package. Fabricated in a 65nm advanced sub-micron process, the EN2510 delivers PHY data rates in excess of 250 Mbps while significantly reducing power consumption compared to previous generations.

In order to facilitate easy integration into end products, the EN2510 provides an Ethernet interface configurable for MII, double clocked MII, GMII or RGMII operation. The chip also has integrated support for a PCI Express x1 endpoint for attaching to next generation set-top box and network processor chips, providing a future-proof investment.

"We are proud to extend Entropic's leadership in home networking with the introduction of our c.LINK EN2510," stated Patrick Henry, CEO of Entropic Communications. "This chip has higher performance, a smaller footprint and provides our customers with a lower overall system cost."
