Broadcom powers Humax's first 40nm HD satellite STBs

IRVINE, USA: Broadcom Corp. announced that Humax, a premier set-top box manufacturer, is now deploying HD satellite set-top boxes, based on Broadcom technology, to emerging countries, proliferating low cost and interactive HDTV throughout the world.

The Broadcom BCM7358 HD satellite STB SoC reduces design complexity, size and overall system cost to accelerate deployment of HD satellite STBs throughout emerging markets.
Broadcom's 40nm design combines a high performance CPU, advanced security functionality and connectivity support including DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance).

Sam Rosen, senior analyst, ABI Research, said: "Lower cost HD set-top boxes will help Asian satellite operators to proliferate HD video and other advanced services to consumers that previously could not afford them. Emerging markets require cost-optimized solutions supporting only a single television, options for integrated or external security, robust 2D user interfaces, and HD video."
