Front-end chip supports DOCSIS 3.0 channel-bonding

STMicroelectronics strengthened its STV0297 QAM (quadrature amplitude modulation) demodulator family by adding the STV0498. This front-end solution for Cable TV STBs supports the DOCSIS (data over cable service interface specification) 2.0 standard, and is compatible with the DOCSIS 3.0 channel-bonding scheme.
