Broadcom Unveils Multi-Channel DVB-S2X Satellite STB Chip

Broadcom Corporation has announced a satellite set-top box, or STB, solution that reportedly offers support for the new DVB-S2X broadcast standard. The new BCM45308 system-on-a-chip (SoC) device integrates Full Band Capture (FBC) technology to provide satellite operators with more efficient video and IP service distribution to subscribers' connected devices throughout the home. The Broadcom BCM453xx Series dramatically simplifies system design and cost by integrating dual FBC Analog Digital Converters (ADCs) and up to eight demodulators in a single chip. The inclusion of FBC technology and DVB-S2X demodulators allows operators to digitize the entire 250-2350 MHz spectrum and provide flexible bandwidth deployment and tuning function in the digital domain, which enables a drastic reduction of tuner area and power. Remote diagnostics capabilities provided by FBC technology saves operators costly on-site customer visits and pairs with FastRTV technology to provide quick channel change regardless of frequency. The new DVB-S2X satellite standard offers improved operating range and performance in direct-to-home (DTH) satellite markets to cover additional subscriber deployments and business applications. The BCM453xx Series supports all new DVB-S2X coding rates, modulation schemes, channel bonding and sharper roll off factors to improve efficiency on transponder bandwidth. The BCM453xx Series of devices are ball compatible to Broadcom's BCM452xx DVB-S2 Series of devices to provide a very quick and easy upgrade path to support the S2X standard.

Broadcom Corporation Unveils the DOCSIS 3.1 Cable Set-Top Box

Broadcom Corporation has unveiled the DOCSIS 3.1 cable set-top box, or STB, design. Broadcom's BCM93390VMS52 provides global cable system operators and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) with a powerful all-in-one cable subscriber experience that combines data delivery at speeds of up to five Gigabits per second (Gbps), support for 4K/Ultra HD video decoding and multi-Gigabit Wi-Fi home networking. Engineered to support the new era in Gigabit data and improve the spectral efficiencies of current networks, the DOCSIS 3.1 specification enables higher-order modulations in existing hybrid fiber-coaxial (HFC) networks without changes to the existing cable plant. By combining low-density parity check-based Forward Error Correction (FEC) and Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) technology, DOCSIS 3.1 allows operators to more efficiently pack more data into the existing spectrum. Details of the BCM93390VMS52 demonstration include the world's first cable STB reference design to combine dramatically increased multi-Gigabit broadband data speeds, Ultra HD video decoding and dual concurrent 4x4 Wi-Fi in a single, efficient design; a five Gigabit downstream and two Gigabit upstream broadband speeds to a consumer's home and a 10-Bit HEVC-enabled Ultra HD video decoding with Broadcom's BCM7252S. It supports up to 16 concurrent DVB-C video channels. Details of the BCM93390VMS52 demonstration also include 1Gbps MoCA 2.0-bonded Coax home networking. Integrated DOCSIS 3.1 cable modem and router with Broadcom's BCM4366 5G Wi-Fi for both 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi.
