Entropic Discusses Advantages of Next-Generation Silicon Platforms for the
Connected Home

From Adding Power Management Efficiencies to Marrying Silicon Innovation With
New Content Delivery Architectures, Entropic's Dr. Michail Tsatsanis Speaks at
Two Industry Events About the New Features in Connected Home Silicon Solutions

SAN DIEGO, Sept. 30, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Entropic (Nasdaq:ENTR), a world
leader in semiconductor solutions for the connected home, today announced its
participation in two upcoming events this week – the 2013 Fiber to the Home
(FTTH) Conference & Expo and the IEEE Communications Society/Consumer
Electronics Society Event: The TV Screen in the Home.

Michail Tsatsanis, Ph.D, Entropic's director of Communication Systems and an
IEEE Fellow will be presenting at two industry events this week about how
next-generation silicon platforms will advance the Connected Home. At the FTTH
Conference, Dr. Tsatsanis will address how new power and energy-saving
techniques are being embedded into advanced silicon solutions to meet
aggressive energy efficiency requirements for set-top boxes and other
connected consumer electronics (CE) devices. At the IEEE event, Dr. Tsatsanis
will discuss how MSOs are leveraging silicon platforms to enhance the overall
TV experience with advanced features and improved in-home connectivity.

"The Connected Home silicon market is both dynamic and exciting as the
innovation cycle to deliver new hardware is rapid and constant," said Dr.
Tsatsanis. "At this week's conferences, we will discuss how semiconductor
solutions are advancing the current state of experiential TV – from adding
more power-efficient features into set-top boxes to increasing the velocity at
which new applications and services are being deployed."
