Low-Cost Satellite Set-top Box SoC

Currently Viewing:

Broadcom's BCM7325 is a single-channel, multiformat high-definition satellite receiver chip that enables manufacturers to develop low-cost satellite Set-top Boxes (STBs).
Broadcom’s BCM7325 System on a Chip (SoC) enables functionality for Direct Broadcast Satellite (DBS) Set-top Boxes and supports multiple formats including the DVB-S, DVB-S2 and 8PSK standards. With capabilities that go beyond current DVB-S2 silicon implementations for both integration and performance, the BCM7325 offers STB manufacturers a significantly lower-cost solution for the development of DVB-S2-capable Set-top Boxes. The BCM7325 is built around previous generations of Broadcom digital cable and satellite STB chips and technology, so service providers that deploy Set-top Boxes designed around the BCM7325 can cost-effectively provide their subscribers with advanced HD television viewing features and improved picture quality.
