The HomeGrid Forum welcomes the launch of Sigma Designs' second generation G.hn chipset announced earlier today on the eve of the CES exhibition in Las Vegas.

The new Sigma Designs chipset can be embedded to "G.hn-enable" consumer electronics devices, gateways and set-top boxes for home networking, enabling the delivery of multiple streams of HDTV video content, 3DTV video traffic, audio content, VoIP, data, gaming and other applications.

Expected to be in volume production by Q2 of 2013, the CG5200 is already in trials with several OEM and ODM customers and will be showcased in the HomeGrid Forum's Booth, # 21906 (South Hall 1, Ground Level) during this week's CES show.
