— Five-year-old Chaos Telecom has developed a set of nonlinear signal processing algorithms that are currently under evaluation by several DSL chip makers, and it hopes to sign licensing deals with them by year's end.
The startup is marketing the algorithms as semiconductor intellectual property to be incorporated into chips to improve the effective signal-to-noise ratio of DSL modems and consequently improve their range, data rate or power requirements.
"About a half-dozen DSL ASIC companies are evaluating our algorithms," said CEO Larry Fromm. "We hope to get our solution embedded into their silicon. We expect to have licensing revenue starting this year." Revenue will be tied to the volume of licensees' DSL chip sales.
