c.LINK® Coaxial Network Controller

Manufacturer's part number :


Manufacturer Entropic


Description :

The EN2210 combines increased host interface flexibility with reduced power consumption and lower system integration costs. Working together with the EN1010 Coaxial Network Interface, the chipset operates at radio frequencies from 800 to 1500 MHz, enabling compliance to the Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA™) specification. Based on Entropic's c.LINK® protocol, the core technology chosen by MoCA™, the EN2210 enables secure and robust communication using existing home coaxial cables without the need for new wiring or modifications. MoCA™ members include cable, telco and satellite operators, set-top box OEMs, network equipment OEMs and consumer electronics OEMs worldwide.
