HD PVR Satellite SoC with Power Management and MoCA for Home Networking

Currently Viewing:

Broadcom's BCM7342 is a high-definition Set-top Box System on a Chip with integrated MoCA 1.1 technology for home networking.
Broadcom’s BCM7342 is a single-chip, multiformat HD satellite Set-top Box (STB) solution featuring an integrated Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA) 1.1 core and DVR watch-and-record capabilities that enable service providers to deploy multiroom DVR while reducing cost and power requirements. Acting as a media center when paired with the BCM7340, the BCM7342 allows multiple users to store, time shift or access content from media servers or residential gateways for playback on Set-top Boxes anywhere in the home, driving the transition to a more connected and interactive home network environment that also reduces the power, complexity and overall cost for the solution provider.
