Taipei – Computex (June 4, 2012) – Marvell (Nasdaq: MRVL) today announced its ITU-T G.hn-compliant transceiver chipset is at the heart of Delta Networks Inc.’s (DNI’s) new DH-ED31GP modem, offering a high level of performance and flexibility that is designed to greatly accelerate today’s connected lifestyle. Marvell and DNI are showcasing the modem in Room 101C at Computex 2012, taking place June 5-9 at the Taipei International Convention Center.
“The collaboration between DNI and Marvell is resulting in game changing solutions for home entertainment,” said Dr. YY Tsai, CTO & Marketing VP of DNI. “As the world’s leading provider of PLC products, DNI is very excited that Marvell’s innovative G.hn chipset is powering our new DH-ED31GP. The collaboration with Marvell continues to raise the technology bar for the entire industry. More importantly, together with Marvell, we are greatly enhancing the experience for the consumer by delivering incredible streaming multimedia performance to the connected home.”
As one of the leaders in connected home and home networking technology, Marvell has picked up considerable momentum with its G.hn chipset after the technology’s debut in September 2011. The solution won a Best Electronic Design Award in December 2011 and a Connected Home Award in April 2012. Demonstrations at CES and the Asia Plugfest in 2012 generated even more interest around Marvell’s Powerline roadmap and potential G.hn deployments.
For the DH-ED31GP, DNI has implemented Marvell’s entire GE-DW360F G.hn Powerline reference design, which includes a G.hn-compliant MAC/PHY transceiver; the Marvell 88E1510 Gigabit PHY; the 88LX3142 digital baseband processor; the 88LX2718 analog front end; full ITU-T G.hn protocol stack; and a powerful software API. Targeted for bandwidth-intensive, multi-media streaming applications, the GE-DW360F delivers performance of up to 1Gbps PHY rate – currently the fastest available in the industry.
Marvell’s G.hn chipset offers a range of other benefits as well. For example, ITU-T compliance offers a multi-source ecosystem; reduced cost, complexity and time to market; and the advantage of global support across countries, regulators and vendors. It also offers complete unification of the home wireline network, including Powerline, Coax and Phoneline, to distribute more content to more screens in more rooms in the home. In all, Marvell’s Powerline reference design is an ideal solution for data-rich, real-time applications such as HD IPTV, VoIP, gaming, multi-room DVR and beyond.
