Infineon Introduces DECT 6.0 / CAT-iq Chipset with Texas Instruments' Puma 5 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem Solution

NEW ORLEANS—(BUSINESS WIRE)—May 19, 2008— Today at the 2008 Cable TV Show, Infineon Technologies AG (FWB:IFX) (NYSE:IFX) announced a cost-effective DECT solution, which when combined with a DOCSIS 3.0 chipset, produces a platform for North American cable service providers to deploy next-generation Voice-over-IP (VoIP) services operating over DECT 6.0 cordless telephones. The resulting platform, which combines Infineons COSIC-Modem and DUSLIC-xT with Texas Instruments (NYSE:TXN) PUMA-5 chipset, enables system integrators to develop eMTA (Embedded Terminal Media Adapter) products that conform to the latest standards in DOCSIS® 3.0 (Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification), and the latest DECT 6.0 / CAT-iq cordless telephony standards.

The new platform unlocks additional revenue potential for cable service providers by offering the benefits of a user-installable VoIP solution, which require no home phone wiring or truck rolls, with extended features that enable the provision of additional revenue-generating services to the end user. The consumer will benefit from interference-free cordless phones that offer wideband audio (HDsound) and support for multiple concurrent calls to separate external parties, along with new Internet-like applications on the handset, such as access to online address books, buddy lists, and stock and weather tickers. The eMTA with integrated DECT 6.0 is also capable of continued service during power failure since the base station is powered by the eMTAs standby battery, and the handsets feature more than 170 hours of standby and over 15 of talk-time.

"Infineon's COSIC-Modem chipset offers a low-cost, full feature add-on to our DOCIS 3.0 TI's Puma 5 cable modem chipset, which allows applications and platforms to leverage the flexible architecture of the industrys first DOCSIS 3.0 compliant solution and draws on TIs extensive Voice over Cable experience to meet diverse VoIP market needs," said Ran Senderovitz, Cable Business Manager of Texas Instruments. "The DECT enabled eMTA platform, with features based on TI's Puma 5 chipset, offers cable manufacturers and MSOs the ability to deliver a completely new telephony experience to the consumer."

By combining Texas Instruments cable modem with Infineons field-proven DECT and SLIC products, we can now offer a unified platform that supports both next-generation DECT cordless telephones, as well as legacy analog phones, said Ulrich Huewels, Vice President of CPE products in the Communication Business Group at Infineon Technologies AG. This modular solution enables OEM customers to develop a family of products that meet the requirements of the world-wide customer base.

The DECT-enabled eMTA platform includes Texas Instruments PUMA-5 DOCSIS 3.0-based (Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification) cable modem chipsets, optimized for triple play and next-generation IP services; Infineons COSIC family optimized for DECT 6.0 / CAT-iq base station, handset and VoIP gateways; and Infineons DUSLIC-xT (Dual-channel Subscriber Line Interface Circuit) device for voice and VoIP-enabled device.
