Infineon Technologies AG (Infineon) has introduced a new XWAY ARX182 and XWAY ARX188 single-chip ADSL2+ Integrated Access Device (IAD) solutions to its single-chip XWAY ARX100 gateway family. The ARX188 is targeted at feature-rich IAD designs with high throughput and quality of service requirements and the ARX182 is the low-cost IAD solution dedicated to the up-and-coming entry-level segment of Analog Telephone Adaptors with integrated DSL functionality (DSL-ATA).

Together with the new subscriber line interface circuit (SLIC) XWAY SLIC100 family, the company sets a benchmark in energy efficiency by enabling customers to exceed the requirements of European Union Code of Conduct (EU CoC) on Energy Consumption of Broadband Equipment by up to 35%.

“Our ARX100 architecture underscores Infineon’s commitment to Green IT by significantly reducing the power consumption of home gateways. The ARX188 combines the advantages of the recently launched ARX168 for Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) with Infineon’s leading VoIP technology to offer superior multi-service gateways for consumers, whereas ARX182 supports carriers in migrating to All-IP networks,” said Christian Wolff, division president of the Wireline Communications division at Infineon. “These new solutions further emphasize the commitment given to our OEM/ODM customers with the introduction of the ARX100 architecture: One Investment, Many Products.”
