Microtune Debuts MoCA-Compatible Tuner Chips


Microtune debuted two new 1.1-gigahertz TV-tuner chips that support the Multimedia Over Coax Alliance (MoCA) specification.

The vendor said its MT2022 DOCSIS (Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification) Set-Top Gateway (DSG) Tuner and MT2122 Analog/Digital Video Tuner will allow cable operators to provide their subscribers with wireless digital in-home networks.

MoCA is a standard used by the cable, satellite and telephony industries for delivering content around a customer's premises using the existing coaxial cabling that is in approximately 90% of U.S. households, Microtune added.
