Centillium Communications Inc., a provider of broadband access solutions, announced its Maximus III and Pharos III ADSL chipsets, which aim to bring high definition quality to next-generation video and IPTV applications for service providers and telcos. Centillium claims that the chipsets are one of the industry's first to support dual latency and enhanced impulse noise protection (INP).

According to analyst Steve Rago of iSuppli, the company is tapping into a market "on the cusp of a growth explosion." Rago predicted that the demand for IPTV and video services will continue to grow by 92 percent over the next five years. "By the end of 2010 there will be 63 million IPTV subscribers," said Rago.

Centillium's Maximus III and Pharos III solutions offer pin-to-pin compatibility with previous versions and are compliant with enhanced standards (992.3 and 992.5). The chipsets are said to provide the highest level of integration and reduced bill-of-material cost to equipment manufacturers.

Both Maximus III and Pharos III will have engineering samples in Q2 of 2006.
