Multiroom HD-DVR Set-Top Box SoC Solution

Currently Viewing:

Broadcom’s BCM7429 is a multiroom HD Digital Video Recorder (DVR) Set-top Box (STB) System-on-a-Chip (SoC) solution.
The BCM7429 is a multiroom, high-definition DVR Set-top Box (STB) system-on-a-chip (SoC) solution. Integrated with MoCA technology, the chip delivers double the video bandwidth and increased security. The BCM7429 allows manufacturers to provide more energy-efficient systems with advanced power management technology for low-power sleep and Wake-on-Lan (WOL) modes.


  • MoCA 2.0 sets the standard for video distribution in the home by providing more than double the throughput performance and capacity compared to MoCA 1.1; critical power management capabilities for low-power requirements; and enhanced security for an additional level of content protection
  • MoCA 2.0 supports an improved packet error rate, enabling higher Quality of Service (QoS) levels for operators, and enables the effective utilization of higher numbers of tuner/demods being integrated into next-generation STB and gateway devices
  • MoCA 2.0 provides complete interoperability with MoCA 1.0 and 1.1 while also providing full performance with MoCA 2.0 nodes
