  • Sigma Designs, Inc. (SIGM) Technology Nets Comtrend Win 0 comments
    Nov 1, 2012 2:10 PM | about stocks: SIGM

    Sigma Designs announced that the Comtrend PG-9141s Powerline Single Port Adapter won the 2012 Communications Technologies Platinum Award in home networking, which was announced at the 2012 SCTE Cable-Tec Expo in Orlando. This is significant because the PG-9141s contains Sigma technology, namely the HomePlug AV and ClearPath.

    Sigma Design is focused on designing and building semiconductor technologies that are utilized in a wide array of consumer tech products, such as IPTV set-top boxes, DTV, connected media players, residential gateways, and home control systems.

    Comtrend's PG-9141s Power Adapter, containing Sigma Designs' CG2210 HomePlug AV chipset with ClearPath technology, allows data transfer over the powerline at a PHY layer rate of up to 200 Mbps which is useful for home networking. It allows the use of all three wires in a powerline network to achieve extended coverage and higher throughputs to multiple points in a home network, even through surge protected power strips.

    John DiFrenna, vice president of sales & marketing for Comtrend, said, "Winning the 2012 Platinum Award from Communication Technology in Home Networking is an unexpected honor. 2012 has been Comtrend's groundbreaking year in the home networking market. To take a win right out of the gate with our PG-9141s Powerline Adapter is a credit to our team and the advisement from our knowledgeable customers. This is further evidence that Comtrend's bold approach with new and diversified solutions is helping to shape the evolving landscape for home and business networks."

    "HomePlug AV with ClearPath is a remarkable technology, and receiving this award further substantiates the recognition to our innovative approach in every home networking technology area developed by Sigma," said Gabi Hilevitz, vice president and general manager of Sigma's Home Connectivity unit. "We are very pleased with our partnership with Comtrend and are happy for them for winning this prestigious award."
