Specialised semiconductor company Telechips has released a set of systems-on-a-chip (SoC) for 4K set-top boxes (STBs).

4K 10 jan 2018The latest STBs powered by the TCC899X SoC series, showcased at the Consumer Electronics Show, decodes 4K video at 60 frames per second, while handling Dolby Vision and security from Nagravision, Cisco, Verimatrix and other conditional access systems.

The SoC uses an ARM processor with a quad core Cortex-A53, and leverages the 14-nanometer process power consumption advantages for graphics performance and application processing speeds. This allows OEMs 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 the 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.”

The TCC899X family of products is available for sampling in April of 2018 with volume production slated for the second half of 2018.
