Broadcom Develops New Satellite Set-Top Box Technology

By | January 4, 2008 | ST Briefs, Telecom

[Satellite Today – 1-4-08] Broadcom is launching a single-chip, multi-format high-definition (HD) satellite set-top box solution that it says will enable manufacturers to develop low cost satellite set-top boxes with personal video recorder functionality, the company announced Jan. 3.
    The satellite system-on-a-chip is manufactured in 65-nanometer process technology that features a high level of functionality, fully integrating a dual tuner/demodulator, and the latest generation of advanced video coding that supports multiple video formats.
    By reducing the number of components required to develop satellite set-top box products, Broadcom claims that it has reduced power consumption by more than 50 percent over competing solutions, reducing the complexity and size of designing next generation set-top boxes.
