Devolo Selects Sigma Designs for Advanced Powerline Solution 
Innovative Technology Offers Service Providers Unparalleled Data
Transmission and Cost Effective Remote Monitoring 
MILPITAS, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/28/12 --    Sigma Designs(R)
(NASDAQ: SIGM), a leading provider of System-on-Chip (SoC) solutions
for home entertainment, connectivity and control, announced that
Devolo(R), the European leader in Powerline communication (PLC)
solutions, has introduced its innovative Diversity technology
adaptors based on Sigma Designs' SoC CG2210 HomePlug AV(R) with
ClearPath(TM) technology. The CG2210 chipset supports Diversity
technology by way of enabling the additional use of the protective
ground wire, creating multiple transmission channels for overcoming
line impairments such as noise, undesired filtering effects of surge
protectors and high attenuation when working over multi-phase power
networks. The results are overall throughput improvement, higher
robustness and better coverage, all essential in providing carrier
grade IPTV services to multiple TVs. Remote management capabilities
such as TR-069 supported by the CG2210 in the Devolo Powerline 200 AV
Diversity + adaptor offers service providers convenient access to
monitor, diagnose, troubleshoot and upgrade firmware resulting in an
overall reduction of service calls, returns and maintenance costs.  
"We are proud of the Diversity 200 product line," says Joerg Baumann,
director of project and business development at Devolo. "The
combination of Devolo's many years of expertise in the field of
powerline and Sigma Designs' ClearPath technology has enabled us to
create a robust, high quality solution for service providers to
reduce TOC and increase customer satisfaction and loyalty."  
"Our HomePlug AV technology with ClearPath used in Devolo's
Diversity+ adaptors makes this a game-changing solution for home AV
networks," said Gabi Hilevitz, Sigma Designs general manager,
connectivity business unit. "ClearPath is a unique technology,
developed by Sigma Designs, which offers superior performance in
terms of coverage and throughput with the added benefit of being a
cost efficient option for service providers."
