Broadcom introduces affordable cable STB for Indian market

NEW DELHI: Broadcom Corporation, a global innovation in semiconductor solutions for wired and wireless communications, has introduced an affordable cable set-top box.

Broadcom said it has the industry?s most integrated single chip BCM7014 standard definition (SD) cable STB system-on-a-chip (SoC) solution.

The new platform is designed to accelerate the cable TV digitisation in the country with highly cost optimised systems at an affordable price point for wide scale deployment in India?s rapidly expanding digital cable networks.

Broadcom India Managing Director Rajiv Kapur said the technology is designed for India?s growing cable TV market. With the December 2014 analog shut-off deadline, India?s cable TV market is poised for a network upgrade to satisfy the needs of its growing TV viewing population.

Broadcom uses ultra low cost integrated DVB-C tuner, demodulator, MPEG2 A/V decoder, regulators controller, A/V outputs and RF Modulator replacing many discrete components with a single integrated SoC for a high level of integration and cost efficiency.

A new adaptive Volume Leveling Support automatically maintains constant volume across commercial, programme and channel changes.

It has integrated Third Generation Silicon Tuner, field tested extensively in Indian conditions. "This will meet the Indian cable TV operator‘s requirements and integration capabilities at lower overall costs," said Kapur.

The Fast Boot-up and Ultra Low Power management controller reduces average power consumption up to 65 per cent in a typical day and fast resume technology enable quick booting to video in as little as few seconds.

It comes in a two- layer reference design size of only 4 x 2.5 inches with minimal external components. Broadcom?s field-proven reference software stack and application available in an ultra small memory footprint accelerates design, qualifications and deployment.

This Broadcom product is now shipping in volumes across the globe. STB designs are now ready for immediate deployment in India.
