IP Set-top Box Reference Design

Currently Viewing:

Broadcom’s BCM97318 IP Set-top Box reference design is a complete hardware and software design based on the BCM7318 and BCM7411 chipsets.
Broadcom's BCM97318 reference design includes the BCM7318 single-chip IP Set-top Box decoder and the Broadcom BCM7411 AVC video decoder/audio processor chip. These chips, combined with the Broadcom BCM6348 ADSL2+ chip, offer manufacturers a complete, cost- effective IP Set-top Box (STB) solution that supports both the MPEG- 2 compression standard and the H.264 standard. Support for both standards enables the STB to be used in current MPEG-2 compression-based networks and provides the capability to migrate to H.264 compression when telecommunications operators upgrade their networks to support H.264 advanced compression technology. Broadcom's reference design also enables personal video recording (PVR) in an IP Set-top Box.
