MaxLinear simplifies engineering design for home connectivity solutions

CARLSBAD, California – (COMMERCIAL LINE) – MaxLinear Inc. (NYSE: MXL) today announced the immediate availability of a power management integrated circuit (PMIC), the XR77103-MoCA, designed to meet the power needs of the MaxLinear MxL370x MoCA 2.0 and MxL371x MoCA 2.5.

As service providers invest in multi-gigabit broadband infrastructure, the Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA®) solutions are needed to extend this high performance to the home network. Home routers and Wi-Fi extenders using MaxLinear MoCA 2.5 technology create a reliable wired backbone capable of delivering multi-gigabit speeds without interruption in your home or office.

With the XR77103-MoCA, a highly integrated custom power management device, which supports these chipsets, the design process is simplified, reducing development time, minimizing board space and ensuring quality performance.

“MaxLinear is committed to providing a complete solution that ensures faster product design and a more reliable product,” said James Lougheed, Vice President of High Performance Analog products. “The MXL7310 was the world’s first fully integrated circuit to support the MoCA 2.5 multi-gigabit standard. With the XR77103-MoCA PMIC, MaxLinear provides the same level of integration and performance to the power supply. ”

The PMIC XR77103-MoCA is custom designed to provide 3 voltage rails with exact sequencing requirements for the MxL37xx SoCs and associated Ethernet PHY. With the addition of MaxLinear GPY211 2.5GbE PHY, the entire solution has been qualified, demonstrating first-rate performance in MoCA loopback tests through a -60dB to 2.5GB attenuator.

The XR77103-MoCA can operate with any input voltage from 4.5V to 14V and is offered in a 4x4mm QFN package. With three high-efficiency synchronous buck regulators built into the device, it saves 14 external components over previous solutions by reducing board space by 25%. The three outputs are preset to 0.9V, 1.8V and 3.3V as required by the system with exact timing handled by the PMIC sequencing engine. The 0.9V core rail can deliver the 3A spikes required by the SoC and is compatible with DVS SoC, Dynamic Voltage Scaling, to optimize performance.
