STMicroelectronics Expands Strong Lineup of Broadcast Set-Top Box Products Built on a Unified Platform for Cost-Effective, Fast Time-to-Market

New Products Deliver Unique Balance of CPU Power, Video Quality, Full Security, and Reduced Bill-of-Materials for Feature-Rich, Popular-Priced Broadcast Equipment

GENEVA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/08/13 -- STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM), a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of electronics applications and a top player in ICs for digital TVs and set-top boxes, has added new devices to its latest range of set-top box system-on-chip ICs for high-definition terrestrial, cable, IP, Over-The-Top and satellite equipment.

Expanding ST's offering of interactive digital video recorder (DVR) -capable solutions, the new STiH253 full-featured digital video broadcast device integrates a single DVB-T2 demodulator for highly integrated terrestrial set-top box.

Another addition in the Company's set-top box portfolio, the STiH271EL, is perfectly suited for price-sensitive markets requiring basic zapper functionality without compromise in video performance.

The center of ST's expanded family of set-top box (STB) system-on-chip (SoC) ICs is an enhanced processing engine with integrated on-chip features for more efficient end-product design. This robust processing engine enables operators to use lower-cost memory while meeting the latest low-power objectives. These STB SoCs support the full range of HD broadcast and multimedia codecs, hybrid and IP standards, as well as the latest security and content-protection standards with integrated critical middleware stacks from the leading providers.

ST's chip family expands access to HD zappers, PVRs, Internet Protocol (IP) clients and dual-HD boxes supporting connected-TV services (Internet Protocol TV), information channels and Over-The-Top (OTT) video, gaming, catch-up TV and social networking. The new devices enrich ST's existing line-up of SoCs for generic IP (STiH207), HD cable/terrestrial (STiH273), and HD satellite (STiH237, STiH239) set-top box applications. Pin and software compatibility throughout the family enables OEMs to optimize their design effort across multiple customer/operator cases.

"Across-the-board compatibility of ST's family of set-top box SoCs is a key advantage for Jiuzhou," said Huang Wei, Sales Director for Jiuzhou, a leading Chinese set-top box maker. "This uniform model design shortened our development cycle allowing us to address simultaneously the hybrid satellite, cable and terrestrial markets."

"Replicating the success of previous joint projects, ST's super-integrated, secure and optimized HD cable chipset with robust security delivers seamless support for our popular Inspur middleware, allowing great user experience in entry-level set-top boxes," said Wei Cui, General Manager of Digital Media Division at Inspur, a leading set-top box manufacturer in China.

The new additions in ST's set-top box SoC portfolio -- STiH253 and STiH271EL -- are sampling now to lead customers, in 27 x 27mm and 23 x 23mm BGA packages.
