NXP Semiconductors and ARM Showcase NXP 847x/8x/9x , the World’s First Fully Integrated 45nm Set-Top Box(STB) SoC Platform at CES 2010


The NXP PNX847x/8x/9x represents the world’s first fully integrated 45nm Set-Top Box(STB) SoC platform incorporating multi-channel broadcast receivers. The NXP PNX847x/8x/9x utilizes the ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore™ and ARM Cortex-M3 processors, to enable a high performance, energy-efficient solution in a low-cost form factor. The NXP PNX847x/8x/9x platform provides an optimized system that significantly reduces the manufacturer bill-of-materials costs and power consumption enabling an improved home entertainment experience. The ARM Cortex-M3 processor coordinates the power management for the entire system, enabling the NXP PNX847x/8x/9x family to deliver flexible power optimization with an ultra-low power stand-by operation, enabling STB OEMs to comply with the latest EnergyStar and Voluntary Agreement. The NXP PNX847x/8x/9x delivers advanced system level performance for secure, multi-room DVR video streaming on home networks and for fast execution of Java-based STB middleware engines. Combined with NXPs rich set of hardware and DSP-based content decoding technologies, the ARM Cortex-A9 processors, with its comprehensive internet software ecosystem, delivers industry-leading performance for user interface environments, based on Adobe Flash and web browser technologies. By adopting the ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore processor for the STB market, NXP also benefits from the comprehensive and expanding ARM ecosystem…
