Broadcom has announced its new ultra high-performance digital subscriber line (DSL) and Gigabit routing device for residential gateways. The new multimode system-on-a-chip (SoC) provides increased xDSL performance, optimises home network traffic flows and delivers multiple times the processing power of current carrier gateways. Broadcom's new BCM63138 integrates single and multi-line ADSL2+/VDSL2 channel bonding interfaces supporting concurrent physical layer capabilities such as G.vector, G.inp and SRA, along with GbE switching with advanced broadband WAN to home LAN traffic flow management. The BCM63138 incorporates dual-PCIe interfaces to support dual-band concurrent 802.11n and 802.11ac wireless networking configurations, USB3 host ports and SATA interfaces for mass storage support and a hardware secure boot mechanism. In addition, the BCM63138 features 1 GHz dual-core CPU with VoIP enhancements for 5000 DMIPS of performance and separate hardware packet acceleration engine, integrated support for 6-band VDSL2 single line, or 2-line VDSL2 bonding, integrated multi-channel VoIP with DECT baseband, integrated multi-port Ethernet switch with integrated LAN 10/100/1000 Auto-MDIX GE PHY transceivers and advanced power management capabilities. The Broadcom BCM63138 is currently sampling with volume production expected in 2014.
