Integrated circuits and reference designs help you create a smaller, smarter and more efficient set-top box (STB) and digital video recorder (DVR) system that receives and converts digital TV signals from terrestrial, cable, or satellite sources for output/playback to HD and UHD TVs.
Modern STB and DVRs often require:
More efficient power management with ultra-low standby.
Smaller, robust systems for reliable long-term usage.
Scalability to adapt to new high-bandwidth technology while maintaining backwards compatibility with older TVs.
Additional functionality to play a larger role in the new “smart” home entertainment and automation ecosystem.
