xRX200 VDSL/ADSL solution

Infineon Technologies AG rolls new single-chip VDSL/ADSL solutions for next-generation telecom networks. The XWAY xRX200 family offers high integration, with a more than 50 percent smaller footprint compared to existing solutions, and best-in-class energy efficiency, with more than 50 percent lower power consumption compared to the market.

The first members of the family, the XWAY VRX200 chips will help carriers to deploy HD-IPTV and meet the ever growing demand from consumers for broadband connectivity with up to 100Mbit/s download speed. The new VDSL/ADSL single-chip solution in 65nm technology enables the industry's highest level of integration, based on a core footprint that is 50 percent smaller than existing solutions in the market. This results in the world's smallest VDSL solution for home gateways, enabling attractive designs for manufacturers.

The solution also complies with the most stringent requirements of the European Union Code of Conduct for energy consumption of broadband equipment. It supports the industry's goal of Green-IT, which refers to environmentally sustainable computing and applies to efficient and effective design, manufacture, use and disposal of IT systems with minimal or no impact on the environment. The XWAY VRX200 family also underlines Infineon's focus on designing energy efficient solutions, supporting manufacturer and telecom provider goals to save power and cost. Together with advanced dynamic power management features, best-in-class energy efficiency is attained; with a 30 percent lower power consumption in operational mode and more than 50 percent less power consumption in low-power mode against comparable products.

"The VDSL market is now taking off with carriers deploying new broadband services. This places a lot of pressure on carriers and suppliers to provide cost-effective and energy efficient solutions with advanced features," said Christian Wolff, division president of the wireline communications division at Infineon. "The XWAY VRX200 family enables our customers to respond to market needs by meeting toughened environmental requirements and offering advanced features such as Gigabit home networking and concurrent 802.11n WLAN."

The XWAY VRX200 family is targeted for modems, routers and gigabit gateways. It supports all 6 bands of VDSL2 standards, at the same time achieving full backward compatibility to ADSL standards based on a single hybrid design. To extend the reach of DSL, Bonding of 2 DSL links (up to Profile 8) is also supported on-chip.
