DOCSIS®/EuroDOCSIS™ 3.0 SoC with Full Band Capture
The Broadcom BCM3384 DOCSIS®/Euro-DOCSIS™ 3.0 cable gateway SoC combines Broadcom's Full-Band Capture (FBC) digital tuning technology with remote diagnostics, dual-band concurrent Wi-Fi, a custom, dedicated applications processor and integrated DECT 6.0 CAT-iq 2.0. Broadcom's DOCSIS innovations are driving the proliferation of applications and advanced data, voice, and video services throughout the home.
The BCM3384 supports DOCSIS and digital video on any frequency eliminating limitations of "block" tuners. When combined with Broadcom's set-top box SoC with fast acquisition technology, video channels can be pre-tuned and users can enjoy the experience of Broadcom's FastRTV™ fast channel change technology.
- Fast cable gateway speeds: By delivering 24 downstream channels supporting DOCSIS and/or video and eight upstream channels, Broadcom's technology gives operators the data rates and flexibility required for hybrid and IP video solutions
- Full-Band Capture digital tuning technology and remote diagnostics: Integrated on-chip technology directly samples and digitizes the entire 1GHz downstream spectrum of a cable plant, providing access to any channel anywhere. Remote diagnostics provides real time, unobtrusive diagnostic and spectrum analysis capabilities, without effecting user service on any of the 24 downstream channels
- Improved performance: Digital tuning with advanced signal processing techniques that exceed the most challenging performance requirements demanded by operators
- Integrated upstream power amplifier: Delivers extended power output levels for robust connectivity under the noisiest plant conditions
