Entropic Communications First IC Vendor in Compliance With New MoCA(TM) MAC/PHY Specification; First Chip Company With Reference Design To Pass MoCA's Certification Wave.

SAN DIEGO -- Entropic Communications' c.LINK 270(TM) is the first chipset to meet the recently ratified MoCA MAC/PHY 1.0 specification. Entropic was also one of eight member companies to pass MoCA's recent certification wave, guaranteeing interoperability and compliance among all products and vendors meeting the rigorous series of tests.

"We are pleased to be the first company to offer a MoCA-compliant chipset to the market," said Patrick Henry, president and CEO of Entropic Communications. "Any company using c.LINK-270 for home networking of entertainment can be assured of adherence to a critical industry standard that has passed all hurdles regarding technical viability."

"Entropic is committed to open industry standards, and MoCA has all the elements needed for large scale deployment, including an open specification, a valid RAND licensing environment, active certification waves, and interoperable products deploying in high volume," added Mr. Henry.

The alliance's first certification wave is the process by which members submitted products with MoCA interfaces to confirm interoperability, functionality and performance per a suite of tests chosen by the alliance's certification board. All testing was conducted and monitored by this board.

Testing is ongoing and more certification waves are expected throughout the year.
