MxL236 technical highlights
The MxL236 supports upstream frequencies up to 204MHz with any combination of OFDM and QAM channels with a combined output power of up to 65dBmV at the cable connector. In this configuration, the device dissipates 2.9W less than competing DOCSIS 3.1 PGA offerings.
In conjunction with the MxL278, the MxL236 introduces functions to report network health and performance parameters on the upstream link, allowing operators to reduce maintenance costs by reducing technician truck rolls.
The MxL236 has a smaller footprint than competing DOCSIS 3.1 PGA devices and requires fewer external components, thereby reducing the PCB area required for upstream amplification. Using only a single 3.3V supply, the MxL236 allows manufacturers to eliminate the 5V supply from their gateway design entirely, further simplifying layout and reducing system cost.
The MxL278 DOCSIS 3.1 receiver with integrated MoCA 2.1 transceiver is available for sampling in a standard 10mm X 10mm QFN package. The MxL236 is available for sampling in a standard 7mm x 7mm QFN package. Please contact MaxLinear for ordering information.
