Geniatech selects Entropic's silicon to power new generation of USB bus-powered MoCA adapters

CHINA: Entropic announced that its Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA) silicon and software was selected by Geniatech, a leading OEM/ODM to develop a USB bus-powered MoCA adapter solution for TVs and consumer electronics (CE) devices.

MoCA is already the de-facto home networking technology used by North American Pay-TV operators. Entropic is expanding MoCA's use into European, Latin American and Asian CE markets by driving innovation with a focus on delivering a superior user experience on any networked TV platform.

Geniatech's new USB bus-powered MoCA-to-Ethernet Adapter easily connects service provider or CE devices to the MoCA backbone providing Ethernet-grade connectivity without the need for a separate
power supply or to the need to pull new CAT-5 (category 5) wiring throughout the home.

As the only semiconductor company that has developed a USB bus-powered MoCA adapter reference design, Entropic is enabling OEMs/ODMs to bring innovative MoCA-based USB solutions to market. The small form factor and low power makes possible an out-of-sight, simple installation and enables MoCA home networking to be added to any Ethernet-ready CE device or set-top-box (STB) already deployed in a consumer's home.

After installation, the MoCA backbone can be used to deliver smooth HD video from over-the-top (OTT) services, enable multi-room DVR (MR-DVR) solutions or simply distribute broadband service to other parts of the home.
