The ST Cannes/Monaco SoC design is based on dual-core ARM processors, superior 2D/3D graphics performance with a Mali™ GPU, integrated hardware Faroudja ® multimedia subsystem with HEVC video decoder, high-performance video encoder and high-quality video pre- and post-processing.Technical Highlights – MxL5x2 The MxL5x2 family includes two devices with XL-Band support, MxL582 and MxL542. The MxL582 includes two XL-Band inputs and eight demodulators. The MxL542 includes two XL-Band inputs and four demodulators. Both devices are pin-compatible and integrate an RF splitter, which enables flexible designs that can support from four to 16 demodulators with common hardware and software. MxL5x2 devices are currently in volume production and available in a very low cost 10mm x 10mm QFN package. The MxL5x2 devices integrate all active front-end components, including the low-noise amplifiers (LNA). Due to the high levels of system integration, the bill of material (BOM) in end applications is reduced to a minimal number of low-cost passive components. The low-power and power-control flexibility of the MxL5x2 devices enable compliance with the requirements of Energy Star and the European Code of Conduct for Digital TV Services and Broadband Equipment, in both standby and full operating modes. Technical Highlights - STiH412 The ‘Monaco’ SoC family provides an economical, yet full-featured solution for media server applications. It delivers high computing capabilities based on ARM multi-core processors, superior 2D/3D graphics performance, integrated hardware video encoders with pre-processing and Faroudja ®-enhanced video processing. The devices also feature a comprehensive security toolbox for premium content delivery. The ST Faroudja Transcode Engine provides best-in-class transcoding capabilities for multi-screen experiences across consumer and handheld devices. This allows operators to reduce their network bandwidth while offering an excellent quality of service throughout the home. The ‘Monaco’ family includes the ‘Ultra HD’ STiH412 (4Kp30, VP8), and cost-optimized derivatives (STiH410 and STiH407) for full HD (1080p) markets. About MaxLinear, Inc.
