Award Recognizes Outstanding Engineering in 200 Mbps Powerline Chip
VALENCIA, Spain--DS2 has been honored with an International CES Innovations 2007 Design and Engineering Award for its new In-Home Powerline Networking analog chip -- the DSS7800. This chip is the basis for development of more compact, high performance, cheaper 200 Mbps Powerline Communications products.
The DSS7800 IC is used in the analog front end of powerline modems for In-home PLC networking, and it will be the perfect complement to DS2´s digital chip family used in every home networking device: from ADSL or CATV residential gateways and video-phones for advanced communications to home theatre systems, personal video recorders and game stations -- in fact any device for consumer entertainment.
"This award demonstrates the need for high-speed Powerline networking in today's homes, and our technology is leading through innovation and accessibility. We are proud that our products have been recognized as cutting-edge enabling technology for the global consumer electronics and home networking markets," said Jorge Blasco, President and CEO of DS2.
The DSS7800 is fully compliant with the UPA (Universal Powerline Association) specifications. Developed for high-speed powerline communications applications, the DSS7800 is a classic implementation of Moore´s Law of delivering a high level of integration, reducing the number of components required and therefore the design and the development processes of UPA-certified modem manufacturers. With the benefit of the most advanced and cost-efficient Analog Front End, UPA certified manufacturers are a generation ahead in the high-speed powerline communications market.
The awards were judged by a pre-eminent panel of independent industrial designers, engineers and members of the trade press. Winners are selected in various categories to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products and technologies.
The DSS7800 will be showcased along with other honorees at the Innovations Plus Booth #68747 in the Sands Convention Centre, and at the DS2 Booth # 22050, in the South Hall, at the upcoming 2007 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), from January 8-11, 2007 in Las Vegas.
DS2 (www.ds2.es) is the world's leading supplier of the 200 Mbps technology that enables home networking and broadband access over power line, coaxial cable, and telephone wire. DS2 pioneered the industry with the introduction of its 200 Mbps chipsets, creating the fastest and highest performance solution for simultaneous data, digital audio and high-definition video transmission. Two pre-eminent industry groups, the Universal Powerline Association -upaplc.org - (UPA) and the European Union consortium OPERA (Open PLC European Research Alliance) have adopted DS2 technology in support of multi-vendor standard certified product.
