Bangalore, May 23 : Broadcom Corporation (Nasdaq: BRCM), a global innovation leader in semiconductors for wired and wireless communications, on Monday announced its next-generation 40nm high definition (HD) satellite set-top box (STB) system-on-a-chip (SoC) solution.





Broadcom’s new technology enables low cost HDTV and interactive services to emerging markets such as BRICA (Brazil, Russia, India, China, Africa).

Nicholas Dunn, Vice President of Marketing, Broadcom’s DBS Set-Top Box line of business, said: “Broadcom’s new set-top box technology delivers the ability to upgrade subscribers from SD to HD at minimal cost, transforming the satellite pay TV market in emerging countries.”

The new Broadcom BCM7358 HD satellite STB SoC reduces design complexity, size and overall system cost to accelerate deployment of HD satellite STBs throughout the BRICA markets.
