Entropic’s (News - Alert) Dr. Michail Tsatsanis recently made a presentation at the 2013 Fiber to the Home (FTTH) Conference & Expo. During the presentation, Tsatsanis spoke about the latest features that are present in connected home silicon solutions.
Tsatsanis, director of Communication Systems at Entropic, is an IEEE (News - Alert) Fellow. His presentation at the FTTH Conference discussed the manner in which novel power and energy-saving techniques are being implanted into highly developed silicon solutions with an aim to address the high energy efficiency requirements for set-top boxes and other connected consumer electronics or CE devices.
Tsatsanis is also scheduled to make a presentation on Oct. 5 at the IEEE Communications (News - Alert) Society/Consumer Electronics Society Event: The TV Screen in the Home. His presentation at this event will study the manner in which MSOs are advantageously utilizing silicon platforms to deliver sophisticated features and superior in-home connectivity, thereby improving the TV experience in general.
In a statement, Tsatsanis said, "The Connected Home silicon market is both dynamic and exciting as the innovation cycle to deliver new hardware is rapid and constant. At this week's conference, we will discuss how semiconductor solutions are advancing the current state of experiential TV -- from adding more power-efficient features into set-top boxes to increasing the velocity at which new applications and services are being deployed."
Tsatsanis’ presentation at the IEEE event, "Silicon Innovations for the Next-Gen Cable Architecture" has been scheduled for October 05 from 10:15 - 10:45 a.m. (PDT). Tsatsanis will talk about the advances in set-top box system-on-a-chip technologies. He will also discuss the potential home and cable access networking technologies that are ideal for supporting the next-generation of cable architectures.
