Broadcom Corporation today announced nine new cable, satellite and IP set-top box (STB) system-on-a-chip (SoC) solutions that enable multiple ways for consumers to experience the next generation Internet connected home, featuring full resolution 3DTV.  Designed in 40 nanometer (nm) CMOS process, all nine of Broadcom’s new STB SoC solutions feature high integration, high performance and lower overall system cost.

Broadcom’s new technology features a high performance application processor, support for Internet-based whole-home connectivity applications and services, and support for full resolution HD 3DTV capabilities (including MPEG H.264 scalable and multiview video coding (SVC/MVC) standards, and an OpenGL ES 2.0 3D graphics processing unit (GPU) for advanced 3D graphics).

Broadcom also provides extensive application libraries that enable rich Internet-based TV experiences using widely adopted industry standards, as well as support for the proliferation of high definition and 3DTV video content and Web-based services.

Broadcom’s new STB SoCs will be demonstrated at this week’s International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
