Texas Instruments Inc. introduces the first DOCSIS 3.0 (Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification) data and video gateway product that supports eight downstream channels of DOCSIS and/or digital video supporting frequency anywhere within the spectrum.

Based on a flexible and scalable architecture, TI Puma 5 DOCSIS 3.0 cable products enable OEMs to develop products that provide an efficient migration path to future IP-based services. The newest member of TI's Puma 5 family of DOCSIS 3.0 products, the TNETC4840, allows cable equipment manufacturers to enable advanced video applications by increasing the number of channels available to accept DOCSIS and legacy digital video. TI's 8x4 (eight downstream and four upstream) Puma 5 development package provides cable equipment manufacturers with an open architecture to meet the growing market demand for next-generation multimedia offerings such as IPTV. TI's unique flexible analog front end enables OEMs to deploy universal service gateways ranging from low-end systems supporting up to 200MHz of DOCSIS "capture bandwidth" to high-end full spectrum coverage.

The TNETC4840 enables unprecedented tuner flexibility allowing for a wide-range of wideband and narrow band tuner configurations that complement the robust Puma 5 DOCSIS 3.0 multimedia processor and routing accelerator. Every TI Puma 5 DOCSIS 3.0 solution combines a high-performance DSP-based voice sub-system with TI's exceptional PacketProcessor to deliver uninterrupted best in class voice quality even under high speed DOCSIS 3.0 data traffic patterns.
