Sigma Designs has unleashed its CG5200 family of chipsets that include the CG5210, CG5220 and CG5230. According to the company, the devices deliver optimised functionality, performance and cost structure that enables superior networked entertainment performance and throughput for seamless, high-quality distribution of Triple Play and IPTV over all three household wires: power line, coax and phone line.

The company added that the CG5200 family ensures unprecedented levels of consistency and reliability, making it the ideal solution for embedding into consumer electronics devices, gateways and set-top boxes for whole-home networking of multiple HD and 3DTV video streams. In addition, the chipsets are optimised for multimedia distribution and IPTV applications to deliver multiple streams of HDTV video content, 3DTV video traffic, audio content, VoIP, data, gaming and other applications that are highly QoS-sensitive.

The chipsets are said to offer more throughput than any legacy technology and supports up to 1Gb/s physical layer (PHY) bit rate for multimedia and data distribution over a single medium, and up to 3Gb/s by simultaneously using all three wires inside the home. Moreover, the solutions claim to offer unparalleled performance and reliability over power line and features an optimised MIMO that uses all three wires in the power outletphase, neutral and groundto enable the highest level of guaranteed delivery of IPTV traffic.

Sigma Designs stated that the chipset offers smooth migration from HPNA 3.1 to over coax and phone line. With the new CG5200 family, there's no need for double inventory as the same product can auto configure (or remotely be managed) to work as or HPNA 3.1, added the company.

The CG5200 is sampling to selected OEM and ODM customers, and will be in volume production in 2Q13.
