DEN Networks selects STMicroelectronics for STBs

MUMBAI: Enhancing its set top boxes (STBs) and gateways for its six million subscribers, DEN Networks has tied up with STMicroelectronics (ST), the global semiconductor manufacturer and supplier of system on chip (SoC) ICs.

 

Using this technology in DEN’s new HD zapper boxes, it is looking at growing its customer base and revenues as well. The STiH273 (Palma) integrates a field-proven and widely deployed digital video broadcast-cable (DVB-C) demodulator that has been optimised to work with high-performance external controller area networks (CANs) and silicon tuners to meet the stringent RF-performance requirements of the Indian cable networks.

 

The STiH273 (Palma) also delivers high-quality Faroudja video, 3DTV support, connectivity, and advanced security schemes with all the latest conditional access system (CAS) support, including NSK2.

 

Manufactured in 40nm process technology, the chipset supports an enhanced processing engine with integrated on-chip features that simplify set-top box design, enable operators to take advantage of lower-cost memories, and minimize system power consumption.

 

"Our new high-definition digital set-top boxes leverage STMicroelectronics' feature-packed and flexible SoC ICs, providing an ideal platform for us to deliver innovative value-added services to our customers," said DEN Networks COO MG Azhar.

 

He further added: "The STiH273 SoC is clearly the right choice for our latest generation of set top boxes with the right power, versatility, and features to meet our market needs. We are confident that the chipset will help us in creating both enhanced customer satisfaction and sustaining our leadership edge in India."

 

"As a leading Cable MSO in India, DEN Networks sets the trend for technology, modernisation, and radical transformation, and ST is proud to contribute to DEN's strategic intent. DEN Networks' selection of ST's technology underlines our core competencies and reiterates our commitment to this fast-growing market through localization and cooperation with our India partners," said STMicroelectronics regional vice president for greater China and south Asia region and director for India Design Center Vivek Sharma.
