Low Power 4K Set Top Box Chipset released at CES 2018
Las Vegas, Jan 9, 2018 – Telechips Inc., a leader in semiconductor solutions, today announced their first ever 14nm finFET, system-on-a-chip (SoC) for 4K Set Top Boxes (STBs) to meet the demand of broadcast, IPTV and Over-the-top (OTT) video for operators around the world.
The latest STBs powered by the TCC899X SoC series decodes 4K video at 60 frames per second with a responsive 4K UI while handling other stringent requirements including: Dolby Vision, the advanced security capabilities of Nagravision, Cisco and Verimatrix, and other conditional access systems. Utilizing an ARM® processor with a quad core Cortex-A53, and leveraging the 14 nanometer (14 nm) process power consumption advantages, Telechips delivers state-of-the-art graphics performance and application processing speeds. This will allow customers to produce industrial designs that are smaller and cooler, and enable solutions to be directly powered from a 4K TV’s HDMI2.0 port and provide Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity.
'Telechips has listened to market leading operators and selected 14nm over existing choices, including 28nm, to pack core technologies into a design that addresses the premium video needs of our target customers' said BM Lee, VP of Telechips’ Consumer Electronics Division. 'The product family unleashes creativity in STB form-factor design, enjoys low power consumption without compromise and reduces cost for video delivery.'
This chipset aims to leapfrog the competition in Wi-Fi driven IPTV or OTT and drive the complete solution for mass volume deployment.
The TCC899X family of products is available for sampling in April of 2018 with volume production slated for the second half of 2018.
