Entropic’s TSC130/131 combines a unique array of world-class, highperformance technologies for mainstream high-definition (HD) IP set-top box (STB) applications. An innovative power management system is supervised by an integrated microcontroller. It enables complete power control for all parts of the system and provides the flexibility to implement use case-based power optimizations as well as ultra low-power standby operation. The system ensures compliance with worldwide regulations for energy efficiency and enhances system reliability.
An ARM Cortex-A9 CPU with up to 1700 DMIPS delivers advanced performance with low power to execute heavyweight applications and middleware stacks on home-networked STBs.
A complete, fully programmable, OpenGL ES2.0-compliant 3D GPU renders next-generation UIs, games, and a wide range of other 3D content.
The multi-format/multi-stream HD decoder engine supports a wide variety of Internet content formats used for online video sources - including Google’s VP8 - in addition to all the popular broadcast content formats.
A rich set of image enhancement tools, along with an advanced 1080P60 video post-processing display pipeline, enables high-quality, artifact-free picture output.
For a complete system hardware design, only memory components are required.
This high level of integration enables a very low system bill of materials.
A fully engineered STB reference hardware system and software development kit is provided for product evaluation and system integration. The STB development platform hardware is designed with flexible architecture to support a variety of STB configurations.
Entropic’s software development environment provides complete set of STB low-level drivers, a Linux 2.6 kernel, a configurable board-support package, and a build environment. The STB low-level drivers are mature and hardened by leveraging core driver libraries developed over multiple generations of production STB SoCs. The software development kit includes tools for flash image management and low-cost debug. Several third-party middleware products are supported.
