* Broadband Physics nets 8th patent
Broadband Physics said it has been awarded an eighth patent tied to its “capacity-leaping” technology.
The company claims its mathematics and technology can squeeze 50 Mbps into channels that are traditionally limited to 38.8 Mbps.
“This will be exciting because our future integrated circuits will deliver up to 150 Mbps to every cable connected device in the home for the same cost as for 38.8 Mbps,” claimed company CEO Mark Laubach.

The NTSC/PAL-compatible gear features 12-bit audio and 24-bit video processing, and can be made to integrate with CWDM or DWDM networks, the company said.
