If you aren’t aware of the company’s latest developments and traction in the market today, here are five key things you should know about Entropic to understand where the company has been and where it is going.
Entropic New Initiatives Have Taken the Company to a New Level.
Entropic is no longer just a MoCA® (Multimedia over Coax Alliance) company as it has since evolved to a broader platform semiconductor company with its set-top box system-on-a-chip (STB SoC) assets that were obtained when the company acquired Trident. Fast forward to today and Entropic provides the only pure-play platform semiconductor for connected home entertainment. STBs silicon solutions offered by Entropic help to transform the connected home entertainment experience by focusing on the delivery, connection and consumption of multimedia content in the home and on the go.
Entropic Offers Market Leading Solutions.
Owning more than half of the MoCA market, the company’s success and market penetration doesn’t stop there. Entropic’s strength in MoCA solutions has enabled the company to be the first to market with MoCA2.0 and a multi-band MoCA adapter solution. In addition to dominating the MoCA market, Entropic also holds the #3 global leadership position in STB SoC and #2 in the U.S. as well as #1 global leadership in Direct broadcast Satellite Outdoor Unit (DBS ODU) business.
Entropic’s Innovations are Game-changing.
Entropic is a category creator. It created the MoCA technology, is recognized for being the brains behind the single-wire channel stacking switch technology for DBS solutions and is known for deploying the industry’s first ARM® processor and OpenGL graphics STB SoCs that not only support traditional content broadcasting, but IP streaming as well. Entropic also has more than 2000 granted and pending patents - further building on the company’s ability to lead innovation in the market today.
Entropic is Global.
Unlike companies who cater to specific niche audiences in targeted locations, Entropic prides itself in having a global footprint. The company now works with 700 people worldwide and is quickly growing and expanding into strategic areas of the market that are in need of connected home offerings and education.
Entropic is a Partner You Can Trust.
A trusted partner to the connected home entertainment ecosystem, Entropic is focused on customer choice, collaboration, open standards and customization. The proof is in the MoCA. Entropic currently owns more than 50 percent of the MoCA market not to mention leadership in the STB SoC, Mid-RF MoCA and Multi-band MoCA markets.
