Broadcom starts sampling next-gen set-top box SoC

Posted on Thursday, December 16 2010 @ 06:00:27 CET by

Broadcom started sampling the BCM7422 chip, the company's next-gen set-top box SoC that it claims delivers twice the performance of its current products. The new product is made on a 40nm process and offers a multithreaded MIPS core as well as support for the latest MPEG standards.
The BCM7422 combines a 1.3 GHz multi-threaded MIPS processor with an H.264 codec supporting MPEG Scalable Video Coding and Multiview Video Coding for high definition 3-D TV. It supports OpenGL ES 2.0 graphics, the MoCA 1.1 coax networking standard and DLNA 1.5.

Broadcom claims the SoC's applications processor delivers 3,000 Dhrystone Mips along with an additional 3,000 Mips of performance in additional media cores. It demonstrated the chip at its annual analyst day event.
