ST adds STB SoC ICs for HD terrestrial, cable, IP,Over-The-Top and satellite equipment

STMicroelectronics has added new devices to its latest range of set-top box system-on-chip ICs for high-definition terrestrial, cable, IP, Over-The-Top and satellite equipment. Expanding STís offering of interactive digital video recorder (DVR) -capable solutions, the new STiH253 full-featured digital video broadcast device integrates a single DVB-T2 demodulator for highly integrated terrestrial set-top box.

Another addition in the Companyís set-top box portfolio, the STiH271EL, is perfectly suited for price-sensitive markets requiring basic zapper functionality without compromise in video performance.

The center of STís expanded family of set-top box (STB) system-on-chip (SoC) ICs is an enhanced processing engine with integrated on-chip features for more efficient end-product design. This robust processing engine enables operators to use lower-cost memory while meeting the latest low-power objectives. These STB SoCs support the full range of HD broadcast and multimedia codecs, hybrid and IP standards, as well as the latest security and content-protection standards with integrated critical middleware stacks from the leading providers.

STís chip family expands access to HD zappers, PVRs, Internet Protocol (IP) clients and dual-HD boxes supporting connected-TV services (Internet Protocol TV), information channels and Over-The-Top (OTT) video, gaming, catch-up TV and social networking. The new devices enrich STís existing line-up of SoCs for generic IP (STiH207), HD cable/terrestrial (STiH273), and HD satellite (STiH237, STiH239) set-top box applications. Pin and software compatibility throughout the family enables OEMs to optimize their design effort across multiple customer/operator cases.

ďAcross-the-board compatibility of STís family of set-top box SoCs is a key advantage for Jiuzhou,Ē said Huang Wei, Sales Director for Jiuzhou, a leading Chinese set-top box maker. ďThis uniform model design shortened our development cycle allowing us to address simultaneously the hybrid satellite, cable and terrestrial markets.Ē

ďReplicating the success of previous joint projects, STís super-integrated, secure and optimized HD cable chipset with robust security delivers seamless support for our popular Inspur middleware, allowing great user experience in entry-level set-top boxes,Ē said Wei Cui, General Manager of Digital Media Division at Inspur, a leading set-top box manufacturer in China.

The new additions in STís set-top box SoC portfolio Ė STiH253 and STiH271EL - are sampling now to lead customers, in 27 x 27mm and 23 x 23mm BGA packages.
