STMicroelectronics Home-Networking Solution Receives MoCA 2.0 Certification

GENEVA, May 27, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- STMicroelectronics (NYSE:STM), a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of electronics applications, announces that its STiC2BB+STiC2PA home-networking reference design has received the MoCA® (Multimedia over Coax Alliance) 2.0 interoperability certificate(1). ST's MoCA 2.0-certified solution delivers the highest standard in home networking, boosting speed, power efficiency, and capacity for a multi-room HD and Ultra-HD experience.

ST's highly integrated and very-low-power home-networking product can enable a multitude of MoCA 2.0-capable devices, stimulating the consumption of rich multimedia content within the whole home. The certified solution is available and has already been selected by several leading equipment manufacturers.

"In the dynamic and competitive Consumer industry, ST continues to be a leading provider of solutions based on the MoCA technologies. The MoCA 2.0 certification confirms ST's strong expertise in the home-networking space and its commitment to being a reference partner for Multiple Service Operators (MSOs) in opening new business opportunities," said Thomas Meyer, Headless Product Line Manager, Consumer Product Division, STMicroelectronics.

The STiC2BB+STiC2PA reference development boards and Host software are available now, enabling rapid design of MoCA 2.0-based prototypes and products.

Further Technical Information:

The MoCA 2.0 standard supports throughput of 400Mbps in single-channel Baseline performance mode, with a Turbo mode that increases throughput to over 500Mbps. ST's solution provides full support for these modes, including the addition of bonding that supports 800 Mbps throughput in an Enhanced mode and 1Gbps throughput in Turbo mode. With the support of a packet loss rate lower than 1x10-8 and with the possible latency reaching 2.4msec on average for low latency flows, MoCA 2.0 also improves both video delivery and gaming experience, simultaneously.

In addition, enhanced power management in the STiC2BB introduces a reduced-power standby mode with wake-on-MoCA capability for fast response. Per MoCA2.0 standard specifications, there are also a minimum-power sleep mode and a network-level standby mode that reduces power for all nodes.
