September 13, 2004 by Jeff Shepard

STMicroelectronics Inc. (ST, Geneva, Switzerland) announced its highly integrated, single-chip solution for high-definition set-top boxes (STBs), the STi7710, which combines the functions of ST’s STi7020 high-definition television (HDTV) decoder IC, and the STi5517 Omega decoder. The new IC is easy and cheap to design in, and provides sophisticated features for consumers and greater security for content providers.

Samples of the STi7710 are available now, and volume production is planned for the first quarter of 2005 at an anticipated high-volume price of $18.
