STMicroelectronics: STMicroelectronics Reveals New Chipset Family for HD HEVC Entry Set-Top Boxes

Full-featured, cost-optimized ARM®-based solutions for broadcast and connected
HD HEVC
STBs deliver future-proof performance and interfaces

Geneva, September 9, 2015 - STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM)
, a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of
electronics applications, today announced its newHD HEVC Liege3 familyof
chipsets for entry Set-Top-Box markets, composed of satellite variants
(STiH337/STiH332), cable-market products (STiH372), and IPTV set-top-box
devices (STiH307/STiH302).

More than just an upgrade of previous-generation devices, the new chipset
family combines the latest architectures used in ST's Cannes
(STiH310/STiH312/318) products with optimized IPs to deliver future-proof
SoCs with high integration. This will enable large-scale migration of entry
set-top boxes towards HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding).

ST's new set-top-box devices benefit from a scalable hardware and software
architecture enabling flexible platform configurations to reach optimized
price/user experience ratio across the different HD HEVC entry set-top-box
segments. All chipsets in the new ARM-based family are pin-to-pin compatible
to facilitate design re-use among the different broadcast technologies.
Software compatibility with ST's Cannes SoC family enables OEMs to benefit
from the comprehensive ecosystem in order to easily design innovative client
boxes on multiple middleware products.

Addressing the satellite markets, the STiH337/STiH332 SoCs implement a new
DVB-S2X demodulation scheme enabling MSOs (Multiple System Operators) to
leverage compression-efficiency improvements brought by the HEVC technology.
This results in the enhancement of S2X spectral efficiency for optimal use of
the satellite transponder capacity.

"Our new ARM-based chipset family strengthens ST's presence in all the
segments of the very dynamic HD HEVC entry set-top-box broadcast markets. It
also underlines our strong engagement and capacity to deliver innovative
solutions," said Philippe Notton, Group Vice President and General Manager of
STMicroelectronics' Consumer Product Division. "With the new Liege3 SoC
family, MSOs can maximize the lifetime of their HEVC investments with a
chipset platform that integrates enough processing power for future evolution
while today supporting all the latest key interfaces and broadcast
technologies for optimal spectrum usage."

Key features of ST's new set-top-box SoC family that ranges from entry-level
2.5 K DMIPS without GPU up to 5K DMIPS with embedded GPU include:

* ARM®CPU capable of delivering up to 5K DMIPS for advanced user interface
and complex middleware;
* Mali(TM) 400 GPU for fluid user interface and HTML5 support on connected
platforms;
* HEVC 10-bit performance proven by extensive interoperability tests
performed with all major encoder providers;
* A rich set of future-proof connectivity options including Ethernet, USB 3,
PCIe, HDMI;
* Integrated DVB-C or DVB-S2X demodulator;
* HDR support;
* Advanced security engine enabling CAS- and DRM-based secure video- content
protection;
* 28nm FD-SOI (Fully Depleted Silicon on Insulator) technology, providing
highly-efficient RF and analog integration as well as outstanding power
efficiency at all operating levels, enabling very small fan-less designs.

Reinforcing ST's commitment to serve the HD entry-level set-top-box markets,
the newLiege3 SoC familyis currently sampling to lead customers and will be
demonstrated in ST's private demo suite at IBC 2015.
