BCM7421

Full-Resolution HD 3DTV Set-Top Box SoC Solution

Produced in 40 nanometer (nm) process technology, the BCM7422 is a high definition (HD) full-resolution 3DTV set-top box (STB) system-on-a-chip (SoC) solution designed for residential video gateways. It features a 1.3 GHz multi-threaded MIPS® processor with the latest transmission efficient H.264/MPEG Scalable Video Coding (SVC), and Multiview Video Coding (MVC) standards for enabling 1080p60/50 content distribution and full-resolution HD 3DTV and a 1G pixel per second OpenGL® ES 2.0 3D graphics processing unit (GPU) for advanced 3D graphics acceleration.
