High-Definition IP Set-Top Box SoC

Currently Viewing:

Broadcom's BCM7208 high-definition IP Set-top Box (STB) solution enables advanced IP digital entertainment services in a low-cost, high-performance and compact package.
The Broadcom BCM7208 provides leading-edge IPTV features in a compact-footprint System on a Chip (SoC). It is designed to enable service providers to cost-effectively expand IPTV services, such as networked DVR and IP video services, for both client-server and low-cost standalone deployment models.


  • Incorporates high-speed DDR3 (for decoding high-definition content)
  • High-capacity bulk MLC/SLC NAND, SDIO and serial NOR controller technology
  • Delivers true HD resolution supporting 1080p60 output
  • Integrates full HDMI 1.3 transmitter to support low-cost sub-HD LED panels up to 480/576p resolution
  • Integrated power-management controllers and regulators for support of EnergyStar and European Code of Conduct STB requirements
  • Flexible and configurable standby and active modes of operation
  • Small form factors, measuring at 17x17mm
  • Uses a single 16-bit DDR2 or DDR3 memory device for SD or HD decode respectively to reduce printed circuit board area and bill-of-materials (BOM) cost
  • Supports DVD-quality output (up to 480p) for enhanced-definition viewing and SD + SD picture-in-picture (PIP) capabilities. Also supports HDMI 1.3 output
