Connected media SoC provider Sigma Designs Inc. has recently introduced its latest generation of G.hn chipsets called CG5200 series. The announcement was made during the 2013 International CES, happening in Las Vegas, USA from Jan. 8-11, 2013.

The CG5200 family, which includes the CG5210, CG5220 and CG5230, provides optimised 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 optimised 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.


Features

* Supports up to 1 Gbit/s physical layer (PHY) bit rate for multimedia and data distribution over a single medium, and up to 3 Gbit/s by simultaneously using all three wires inside the home;

* Optimised MIMO (multiple inputs, multiple outputs) feature uses all three wires in the power outlet – phase, neutral, and ground – to enable the highest level of guaranteed delivery of IPTV traffic

* Smooth migration from HPNA 3.1 to G.hn over coaxial and phone line
The CG5200 is sampling today to selected OEM and ODM customers, and will be in volume production in Q2 of 2013.
