STMicroelectronics has reached DOCSIS 3.0 certification for their SoC products addressing the cable-data gateway and interactive set-top box markets. DOCSIS 3.0 is a cable modem specification that provides the framework for home and mobile entertainment to evolve from legacy MPEG to IP video distribution. The company provides a complete certified DOCSIS 3.0 solution including full-band tuner front-end, gateway SoC, and software integrated in an optimized reference design, which combines high performance and low power consumption. Channels bounding up to 16 downstream and 4 upstream enables data speeds of up to 800 Mbps downstream and 108 Mbps upstream. A 4000 Dhrystone MIPS processor, together with hardware accelerators, execute high-performance gateway functions including line-rate data switching/routing, PacketCable telephony, LAN/WLAN networking management and home automation. STMicroelectronics’ DOCSIS 3.0 devices include the STiD128 for 16*4 data gateway, the STiD127 for 16-channel interactive set-top box, and the STiD125 for 12-channel applications. All three devices are available for sampling and volume production.
