Rockwell Semiconductor Systems has announced the first in a family of cable modem chipsets. The set, which consists of three chips, will allow vendors to build subscriber-side cable modems that support the Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification (DOCSIS) standard. This standard is expected to be finalised in the first quarter of 1998, and Rockwell said it would ship the chips in the same timeframe. In the third quarter, the company plans to complete its cable modem offering by launching a chipset for head-end modems.
