T&W Selects Sigma Designs' Next Generation Home Networking G.hn Chipset 
MILPITAS, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/27/13 --  Sigma Designs(R)
(NASDAQ: SIGM), a leading provider of system-on-chip (SoC) solutions
for home entertainment, connectivity and converging multimedia
delivery, today announced advanced networking supplier T&W has
selected Sigma Designs' new G.hn CG5200 family of chipsets for its
P5200 series of powerline network adapters.  
The CG5200 enables a fully self-installable home entertainment
network for the distribution of Triple Play and IPTV over existing
in-home powerline, coax and phone line wires. While complying with
the latest G.hn standard, the CG5200 improves coverage and throughput
over powerline even through surge protected power strips and
multiples phases. 
Consumers today face a mix of non-interoperable home networking
technologies across the various wired media in the home. G.hn offers
a single international standard for establishing high bandwidth
communications across all existing wires. With Sigma's CG5200, every
power outlet, coaxial outlet and phone jack in the home becomes a
network connectivity point on the same mesh network, providing
consumers with convenience and flexibility. This enables traffic to
be delivered seamlessly from one medium to another. 
T&W's P5200 series adapters feature a built-in power outlet design
that replaces the wall outlets that are lost when the adapter is
plugged in. This allows extra flexibility and convenience in
deploying their ideal network to their existing environment. This
also makes it an excellent solution for streaming high-definition
videos, music and other streaming digital multimedia throughout a
home network.  
"We are excited to announce Sigma Designs as our preferred supplier
of G.hn chips. Although the market is competitive, we selected
Sigma's solutions because their chipsets add the robust functionality
we want for our customers," says T&W Marketing Manager Chen Menggen.
As an OEM & ODM manufacturer,its clients include many world
famous brands. 
"We are extremely delighted to have T&W select our second generation
G.hn chipset for their newest and most advanced powerline adaptor.
The CG5200 was built with service providers' and consumers'
 challenges in mind," said Gabi Hilevitz, Sigma Designs'
vice president and general manager, Home Connectivity business unit.
"T&W is an experienced networking equipment manufacturer, and their
selection of our G.hn CG5200 family of chipset for their next
generation products is an expression of confidence in Sigma Designs'
technological leadership in this area."
