Marvell Silicon Achieves World’s First HomeGrid Forum G.hn Certificat ion
2012-12-11
Marvell announced that HomeGrid Forum has awarded full compliance certification to Marvell's ITU-T G.hn chipset. Marvell is the first silicon vendor worldwide to achieve compliance with G.hn, an international standard for home networking over any wire (power lines, coaxial cables and twisted pairs) that can operate at data rates up to 1Gigabit/second. G.hn technology is a key building block of Marvell's Smart Home strategy, and will be embedded into a wide range of G.hn-enabled platforms, including the Marvell® Avanta® PON gateways, ARMADA® Smart TVs and Avastar® Wi-Fi extenders.

HomeGrid Forum's Compliance and Interoperability (C&I) program has developed rigorous testing to ensure the highest levels of compliance, interoperability, and performance for G.hn branded silicon and systems; providing system companies, retailers, service providers and consumers with strong assurance of the product's quality and performance. The test suite includes certification for G.hn's state-of-the art neighboring networks technology for robust performance in high-density multi-dwelling unit (MDU) buildings, a technology that Marvell pioneered.

Marvell's ITU-T G.hn compliant chipset provides for unification of the home wireline network for distributing more content to more screens in more rooms throughout the home. Marvell's G.hn chipset is available to customers as part of the GE-DW360F reference design, which includes the Marvell® 88LX3142 G.hn digital baseband processor, the Marvell 88LX2718 G.hn analog front end, the Marvell 88E1510 Gigabit PHY, a built-in pass-through power socket, a complete TCP/IP protocol stack and a flexible software API. The chipset is an ideal solution for distributing bandwidth-intensive and real-time applications like HD IPTV, VoIP, gaming, and multi-room DVR.

Since launching in September 2011, Marvell's award-winning G.hn chipset has already received widespread recognition. The chipset won both the Best Electronic Design Award in 2011 and the Connected Home Award in 2012 for G.hn silicon. Marvell generated great interest for G.hn during successful coax and powerline demonstrations at CES last year, the world's first G.hn full live demo, and the Asia Plugfest in 2012.
