Broadcom unveils single-chip multi-mode ADSL2+/VDSL2 integrated access device

Broadcom announced the launch of its single-chip
multi-mode ADSL2+/VDSL2 Integrated Access Device (IAD) SoC, delivering triple
play services throughout the home.



The new Broadcom BCM63168 xDSL IAD SoC integrates
802.11n, Gigabit Ethernet Switching, DECT, VoIP, Packet and Quality of Service
Acceleration, and xDSL transceiver supporting Channel Bonding and G.vector into
a single chip.



This achievement enables carriers to meet the growing
demand for triple play services with significant cost, size and power savings.
Additionally, it deploys a higher performing, remotely manageable and
eCOC compliant solution.



The BCM63168 xDSL IAD SoC combines Broadcom’s DSL
industry leadership and proven ability in designing complete ADSL2+/VDSL2
carrier access solutions to reduce overall system cost and power, and meet the
growing demands for high-bandwidth triple play services.



The BCM63168 xDSL IAD SoC features Multi-mode xDSL
transceiver with seamless fallback supporting G.inp, G.vector and channel



High performance 400MHz dual-core MIPS CPU with packet
and Quality of Service offload for advanced routing and service provided applications.



Gigabit Ethernet Switching with integrated Ethernet PHYs
and multiple RGMII ports for flexible expansion and connectivity.



Broadcom will showcase several new reference designs
based on the BCM63168 at BBWF 2011 including: xDSL Home Gateway Platform with
integrated HomePlug® AV Powerline Communications (PLC) and Wi-Fi for multi-mode
whole-home connectivity.  Also features dual-band concurrent Wi-Fi for
high performance triple-play connectivity and advanced VDSL physical layer
rates via G.vector and Channel Bonding and DECT Ultra Low Energy (ULE)
capability for home automation.



“Broadcom’s industry first BCM63168 xDSL IAD
solution offers carriers a complete system that realizes significant cost and
power savings, ushering in high-bandwidth triple play services.  We look
forward to showcasing next generation reference designs, which will open the
market to new applications for home automation and whole-home
connectivity,” said Greg Fischer, VP and GM, Broadband Carrier Access,



Broadcom recently announced
its 40nm HD Cross-Platform Global Digital TV Transport Adapter (DTA)
system-on-a-chip (SoC) product family.



By converting TV programming from analog to digital,
Broadcom is paving the way for the expanded network capacity that operators
require in order to deliver more interactive HDTV programming and services
around the globe.
