Broadcom Unveils Next Generation of Mid-Range Cable and IPTV STB SoC Devices

Broadcom Corporation has launched the next generation of its mid-range cable and IPTV set-top box, or STB, system-on-a-chip, or SoC, devices. The company has added 10-bit HEVC to its mid-range cable, IP STB devices. The upgraded chips now integrate the High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) to provide up to a 50% reduction in bandwidth for similar video quality, allowing operators to leverage huge bandwidth cost savings as they migrate to cloud based all-IP video delivery. Broadcom's upgrades to its high-volume cable and IP STB silicon solutions are engineered as hardware drop-in upgrades to existing designs for fast and low-cost OEM and operator modernizations to existing high-volume production platforms. Key Features of the BCM72415/BCM74285 include: Popular Pay-TV IP STB SoC's; Full HD 1080p60 HEVC 8-bit and 10-bit decode; Certified multi-vendor advanced conditional access and DRM support; 1.2 GHz application processor; High-performance VC4 OpenGL ES 2.0 3D graphics processor; BCM74285 IP Client includes an integrated 400 Mbps MoCA 2.0 IP Coax modem; Advanced power management technology supporting international standards for low-power and Wake-on-LAN (WOL) modes; and Nexus-Trellis STB API supporting advanced 3rd party and RDK middleware software solutions. Key Features of the BCM74295/BCM74305 include: Popular Pay-TV Multi-room HD-DVR and Cloud DVR (Digital Video Recorder) STB SoC's; Full HD 1080p60 HEVC 8-bit and 10-bit decode; Integrated MoCA 2.0 modem providing 400 Mbps IP video networking over Coax; Advanced power management technology supporting international standards for low-power and Wake-on-LAN (WOL) modes; and Nexus-Trellis STB API supporting advanced 3rd party and RDK middleware software solutions. Broadcom's BCM72415, BCM74285, BCM74295, and BCM7430 are currently sampling.

Broadcom Unveils Spectrum Management Technology for Enterprise Access Points

Broadcom Corporation has unveiled AIR-IQ, a spectrum management technology for enterprise 5G WiFi access points. AIR-IQ allows original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to design enterprise access points, particularly for high-density environments, with advanced WLAN air management capabilities to ensure a reliable Wi-Fi experience. As Wi-Fi becomes the primary connectivity source in businesses, there is a growing demand for uptime and service level agreement guarantees for a range of enterprise demanding applications across every major industry. Broadcom's AIR-IQ technology combines the best of silicon and software to provide carriers with the ability to detect and mitigate interference to deliver an exceptional and reliable connectivity experience. AIR-IQ is built on Broadcom's Advanced Spectrum Capture Engine (AsCE), that allows the chip to identify non-Wi-Fi interference and adjust accordingly, delivering improved reliability and quality. AIR-IQ features interactive dashboards for measuring and reporting channel utilization, detection and classification of RF interference as well as spectral maps for forensic capabilities. In addition, record and play-back capabilities allow IT managers to monitor spectrum behavior 24x7 and allow easy troubleshooting and problem solving to reduce overall downtime. The solution also includes location capabilities for identifying and narrowing problem sources. AIR-IQ supports up to 16 classifiers for a range of 802.11ac family of products including analog cordless phones, wireless video cameras, microwave ovens, s-band motion detectors, Bluetooth, gaming controls, baby monitors and others. New devices will to be added with upcoming software releases. Broadcom's AIR-IQ technology is currently sampling and is available on Broadcom's latest Wave 2 802.11ac devices including the BCM47452, BCM43465 and BCM43525.
