Infineon's IAD reference design for Digital Home Networks

Infineon Technologies has rolled out a wireless broadband integrated access device (IAD) reference design for Digital Home Networks. This reference design is based on the company's Danube IAD-on-a-Chip solution that combines an ADSL2+/VDSL2 chipsets provide channel bonding capabilities" target=_blank>ADSL2+/2+ transceiver, a 32bit MIPS CPU, a VoIP co-processor and two integrated codecs.

The new IAD reference design features 802.11n WLAN connectivity based on draft 1.0 specification and a low-power Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications (DECT) base station that promises a robust and reliable solution for wireless phone calls over VoIP. This complete hardware/software solution is intended to help companies rapidly develop broadband IADs and residential gateways that support multiple wireless electronic devices and multiple cordless handsets via a single ADSL2+ broadband connection, Infineon explained.

The ADSL2+ residential gateway reference design is based on the company's semiconductor solutions and Linux-based application software. Infineon said residential gateways based on its design will be capable of advanced services such as IPTV, video-on-demand and online gaming. Integrating DECT into the design will allow users to enjoy low-cost VoIP services via a cordless digital phone which is economical and provides excellent coverage and telco-grade voice quality, the company said. Users will also enjoy wireless home networking with an 802.11n access point that's optimized for whole-home coverage with peak throughput levels of 150Mbps to 180Mbps.
