High Definition STB SoC with 3D Graphics Processor
The PNX8483 is Entropic’s full featured high performance system-on-a-chip (SoC) for high definition (HD) digital video recorder (DVR) set-top box (STB) applications in worldwide cable broadcast networks.
An ARM Cortex-A9 superscalar 1500 DMIPS CPU delivers advanced performance with low power to execute heavyweight applications and middleware stacks on home networked STBs. It also features an innovative power-management system, with an integrated microcontroller, to ensure complete power control for all parts of the system. The system ensures compliance with worldwide regulations for energy efficiency and enhances system reliability.
What separates the PNX8483 from the rest of the PNX848x family is it has an integrated SGX531 core from Imagination Technologies, which implements a complete, fully programmable, OpenGL ES2.0-compliant 3D GPU to render next-generation UIs, games, and a wide range of other 3D content.
