NEW YORK -- November 13, 2012

MaxLinear Inc. (NYSE: MXL), a leading provider of integrated radio frequency
(RF) and mixed-signal integrated circuits for broadband communications
applications, today announced it has been named an International CES
Innovations 2013 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree for the MxL267
24-channel Full-Spectrum Capture (FSC™) cable receiver.

Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel
ofindependent industrial designers, engineers and members of the media to
honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting-edge consumer electronics
products across 29 product categories.

MaxLinear’s MxL267 is the first Full-Spectrum Capture device capable of
simultaneously receiving any combination of 24 channels located arbitrarily
inside the cable spectrum.

The CES judges recognized the impact that the MxL267 is having on the cable
gateway and set-top box market, as summarized in this paragraph from the award

“The MxL267 deserves a CES Innovations Award because it is the key to the
development of cable set-top boxes and gateways that give consumers all of the
programming they want while minimizing power consumption and network
maintenance costs for cable operators. The proof is in the success of the
chip, which has enjoyed more than a dozen design wins by leading cable system
manufacturers including ARRIS Group, Inc. in the first five months since the
chip was launched.”

“Our Full-Spectrum Capture technology is a significant advance in the
industry, and to have that innovation honored at CES is especially gratifying
because it's the biggest showcase of new and advanced products in the consumer
electronics industry,” said Dr. Kishore Seendripu, president and CEO of
MaxLinear. “The MxL267 has been so well received by our customers because it
offers advanced features and consumes only 90mW per channel in 24-channel
receive mode. It also has our powerful remote spectrum analyzer for reporting
network health and performance – saving money for both the consumer and the

The MxL267 supports up to 1 Gigabits per second (Gb/s) download speeds when
bonding all 24 channels together. This enables cable operators to leapfrog the
standard download speeds of 300 Megabits per second (Mb/s) for home Internet
service. With 24 channels in the MxL267, cable set-top boxes can support
enough channels for multiple TVs, DVRs and simultaneous viewing of programming
on multiple screens while still offering untouchable data download speeds.

The prestigious Innovations Design and Engineering Awards are sponsored by the
Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®, the producer of the International
CES, the world’s largest consumer technology tradeshow, and have been
recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976.

The MxL267 will be displayed at The Venetian during the 2013 International
CES, which runs from January 8-11, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Honorees will
also be displayed at CES Unveiled: The Official Press Event of the
International CES from 4-7 p.m. on Sunday, January 6, 2013 in the South Seas
Ballroom C at Mandalay Bay. It is also featured on
