Broadcom has launched a range of System-on-a-Chip (SoC) solutions for Hybrid TV and Over-the-Top (OTT) Media Players based on their BCM72xx chipset. According to Broadcom the chips features advance capabilities in processing power that will transform existing digital TVs into smart TVs. They have also launched six new MoCA 2.0 based SoC set-top box (STB) and Hybrid IP Gateway solutions.
Broadcom is offering OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) and reference design developers of connected home devices a new System-on-Chip (SoC) solution that offers superior speed and better integration. The new chip is called the BCM7422, and is the industry’s first SoC to combine a 1.3GHz multi-threaded MIPS with the latest MPEG industry standard scalable video coding (SVC) that allows STBs (set-top box) to offer 1080p high definition 3DTV.
ZiiLABS and ARM have teamed up to develop a new digital home platform called SiVO. The processor was released at last month’s Consumer Electronic Show (CES) and features a combination of ZiiLABS StemCell Computing Array and ARM’s 1GHz Cortex-A8 processor. The SiVO platform is a single System-on-Chip (SoC) architecture that offers 1080p Blu-ray quality HDTV and 3D graphics from low-power connected home devices.
