STMicroelectronics NV Unveils its DOCSIS 3.1 Chipset Solution, Opening Multi-Gigabit Era to Cable MSOs
Aug 4 15
STMicroelectronics announced the STiD325  (codenamed Barcelona), its DOCSIS  3.1 chipset for Broadband CPE  Cable Modems, embedded Media Terminal Adapters (eMTAs), and Gateways, as well as for Video Gateways when associated to set-top-box chipsets. It is being demonstrated at CableLabs Summer Conference, August 2-5, 2015 in Keystone, Colorado, USA. DOCSIS 3.1 has been engineered by CableLabs® to unleash the multi-gigabit data era on existing Hybrid Fiber-Coax (HFC) networks through improved spectral efficiency using OFDM  multi-carrier modulation combined with low-density parity-check-based Forward Error Correction. Barcelona is fully compliant with the DOCSIS 3.1 specification, including: Two 196 MHz OFDM downstream channels, 32 single-carrier DOCSIS 3.0 QAM  downstream channels, Two 96 MHz OFDM-A upstream channels and 8 single-carrier DOCSIS 3.0 QAM upstream channels.
E3NETWORK Selects STMicroelectronics BiCMOS55 SiGe
Jul 30 15
STMicroelectronics announced that its BiCMOS55 SiGe technology has been selected by the European E3NETWORK R&D initiative for developing energy-efficient, high-capacity transmission systems in next-generation mobile networks. E3NETWORK is designing an integrated E-band transceiver using ST's BiCMOS55 technology for fronthaul and backhaul infrastructure, which enables digital multi-level modulations, highly focused ‘pencil-beam’ transmissions, and data rates above 10Gbps. The pencil-beam property facilitates a high degree of frequency reuse in the deployment of backhaul and fronthaul links, while preserving the spectrum efficiency over the millimeter-wave interval. An EU project within the Seventh Framework program, E3NETWORK, which stands for Energy efficient E-band transceiver for backhaul of the future networks, brings together a consortium of companies including CEIT (Spain), Fraunhofer (Germany), Alcatel Lucent (Italy), CEA (France), INXYS (Spain), OTE (Greece), SiR (Germany), Sivers IMA (Sweden), and STMicroelectronics (Italy).
