Lantiq has introduced a new set of XWAY ARX300 device family for new ADSL2/2+ Broadband Home Gateways.  The XWAY ARX300 family includes four System-on-Chip (SoC) derivatives to address different system configurations, ranging from cost-optimized fast Ethernet to feature-rich high-performance Gigabit Ethernet systems.

According to Lantiq the XWAY is the industry’s first fully integrated Gigabit Ethernet switch and Fast Ethernet PHYs. It offers flexible 802.11n wireless LAN connectivity with support for 2.4 and 5 GHz frequency band. The range include: the XWAY WRX312 (2x2 MIMO), XWAY WRX313 (3x3 MIMO), XWAY ARX382, XWAY ARX388.

There are also the XWAY SLIC 100 voice interface, COSIC Modem DECT/CAT-iq single-chip device, and the XWAY HNX chipsets for powerline/phone line/copper wire connectivity.

"Lantiq's ARX300 family is the first fully integrated GigE/ADSL/WLAN SoC for routers and IADs. It enables carriers to meet growing demand for triple-play services and in-home Gigabit throughput with significant cost, size and power savings at no system performance compromise”, said Rainer Spielberg, Vice President of Marketing, Lantiq. “This achievement will open the market to new applications around home connectivity and home automation."
