Chipset reduces home network data congestion

The G.hn Wave-2 networking chipset from MaxLinear, featuring the G.hn digital baseband and G.hn analogue front ends is available at Mouser Electronics. Offering physical data rates up to 2Gbits per second (Gbps) across a variety of physical media, the Wave-2 networking G.hn processors deliver reliable connectivity and reduced congestion in smart grid, security, broadband, industrial, automotive and smart home applications.

The chipset offers designers the flexibility to combine footprint-compatible components to address multiple G.hn applications. The MaxLinear G.hn digital broadband (DBB) processors provide high-speed networking solutions with 1 Gbps maximum throughput over power lines and 1.7 Gbps maximum throughput over coaxial cables and phone lines.

The DBB processors feature a G.hn physical layer (PHY), G.hn datalink layer (DLL), and an embedded CPU for management and control functions. The G.hn analogue front ends (AFEs) provide up to 2Gbps physical data rates over any wired medium.

Housed in a small 4 × 4 mm QFN package, the devices deliver programmable transmission and reception gains for each wired medium.

MaxLinear’s platform includes a set of software development kits (SDKs) that enable designers to create custom solutions that meet requirements such as IPv4/IPv6 support, quality of service (QoS), and TR-069 management.

Engineers can also use the SDKs to develop customized applications that run on a DBB processor’s embedded CPU.

Mouser is also stocking three G.hn Wave-2 Networking Evaluation Kits, for a power line, coaxial, or phone line medium. Each kit includes a DBB processor, AFE, and two evaluation boards that allow designers to evaluate the performance of G.hn networking technology.
