The International Consumer Electronics Show will open its doors tomorrow, and Entropic Communications will be on hand with several demonstrations.

Entropic announced today the third generation of its c.Link offering for MoCA home networking. Entropic said the latest version of c.Link, which is called the EN2510, is fully compliant with the latest MoCA 1.1 specification, DLNA interoperable and adds a number of performance and feature enhancements over previous c.Link versions.

A single-chip MoCA solution, Entropic's EN2510 is the first c.Link product to integrate the baseband MAC/PHY, analog front-end and RF transceiver into a small 15x15 mm package. Fabricated in a 65nm advanced sub-micron process, the EN2510 delivers PHY data rates in excess of 250 Mbps, while significantly reducing power consumption compared with previous generations, according to Entropic.

Samples, evaluation and software development kits will be available in the second quarter of this year.

Entropic also announced a new silicon tuner today. The EN4020 is a multi-mode hybrid RF CMOS silicon tuner. Entropic said it offers industry-leading performance, analog and digital support, and enables cost reduction by streamlining production and testing processes for tuner module manufacturers. Samples and evaluation kits of the EN4020 will be available to the general market next month.

Entropic will also be showcasing Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA)-enabled products, as part of its live Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA) home networking demonstration at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this week.
