Broadcom Corporation Introduces First GPS-Enabled Device for Satellite Outdoor Units

Broadcom Corporation announced the first GPS-enabled satellite outdoor unit (ODU) device. The solution combines Broadcom's BCM4551 satellite TV device with its BCM4771 GPS receiver, enabling operators to better track the location of subscriber equipment and pinpoint subscriber's service issues in the home. Broadcom will demonstrate the new solution at the International CES show, January 6-9, 2015. Broadcom's new satellite solution resides in the low-noise block (LNB) of a subscribers' satellite dish, enabling operators to better position dish installations and reduce metering equipment costs and truck rolls. Combining GPS-enabled ODU technology with a set-top box (STB), operators can quickly locate and validate a subscriber's home location. GPS technology within the LNB also allows operators to geo-lock content to subscribers. Content geo-locking uses a subscriber's location to deliver video content specific to the subscriber's service address. This ensures the delivery of personalized services and prevents costly theft of service for operators. Previously, content geo-locking was only available through a costly external device attached to subscriber's set-top box. Key features of the BCM4551: Highly-integrated 28 nanometer (nm) process with low power consumption; Allows 24 DVB-S2 channels to be stacked on a single coaxial cable to service any STB to reduce satellite operator installation costs; 8 RF inputs and 1RF output covering the 250 to 2,350 MHz frequency range; 24 user-band output channels; 24 output channels selectable from any LNB input; and frequency shift keying (FSK) and digital satellite equipment control (DiSEqC) Key features of the BCM4771: Highly integrated radio frequency (RF), baseband processor and CPU with smallest complete PCB footprint; Faster signal searches, accurate real-time navigation and improved tracking sensitivity; and increased satellite availability: supports GPS, and GLONASS satellites at L1 frequency band. Availability: The BCM4551 and BCM4771 are in volume production.

Broadcom Corp. Announces New High-Performance Multi-Rate Gigabit PHYs

Broadcom Corporation announced a new series of physical layer transceivers (PHYs) supporting 2.5G and 5G Ethernet speeds. The next-generation devices provide a 2.5X to 5X increase in data rate over Gigabit Ethernet with no disruption to existing cabling infrastructure. The new devices also offer the lowest bill-of-materials, cost and power consumption. The BCM8486X Series provides network managers with additional data rate options that go beyond 1G and 10G, while improving performance over currently deployed Cat5e and Cat6 cabling. The new PHYs also unleash the full benefits of next-generation 802.11ac wireless technology, including Wave 1 and Wave 2 MIMO and ensures a seamless wired connection between the access point and switch. Designed in 28 nanometer (nm) process technology, the BCM8486X Series is the industry's first 2.5/5G PHY based on the open and royalty-free specification adopted by the MGBASE-T Alliance. Available in single-port and quad-port packages, the new PHYs address both the switching and access point markets. Based on the industry proven 10GBASE-T architecture, the BCM8486X Series offers the coding strength of 10G at 2.5G and 5G speeds, resulting in improved alien noise rejection and a cable reach of more than 100m over existing Cat5e and Cat6 cables. Integrated coding and constellation schemes provide best-in-class wideband noise rejection, allowing system vendors to implement low cost 2.5G capable platforms using magnetics similar in cost to 1000-BASE-T-based platforms. Key Features: Single-chip integrated single Ethernet transceiver-MAC to magnetics: 10GBASE-T IEEE 802.3an. 5GBASE-T (MGBASE-T Specification). 2.5GBASE-T (MGBASE-T Specification). 1000BASE-T IEEE 802.3ab 100BASE-TX IEEE 802.3u. IEEE 1588-2008 version 2-compliant. IEEE fast retrain and link monitoring. EEE in 10G, 5G, 2.5G, 1000 and 100 BASE-T modes. BCM84860 and BCM84861 (single-port) packaged in 11mm x 11mm FBGA. BCM84864 and BCM84868 (quad-port) packaged in 23mm x 23mm FBGA. The BCM8486X Series consists of four devices including the BCM84860, BCM84861, BCM84864 and BCM84868. All device options are now sampling.
