The BCM7328 is the second-generation of Broadcom’s Dual Decode/
Dual TV set-top box system on a chip. The BCM7328 integrates
Broadcom’s field-proven BCM4500 8PSK/TC Demodulator
technology, as well as technology derived from Broadcom’s cable
products (such as the BCM7115 cable single-chip).
The BCM7328 memory subsystem is a unified memory architecture,
(UMA), utilizing a 150-MHz Double Data Rate (DDR) memory
interface that supports either 16-bit or 32-bit wide, depending on
required system performance.
The BCM7328 single chip can decode two transport streams, delivered
either via the external dual BCM3440 CMOS Tuners and display the
resulting decoded audio and video on two independent TV monitors,
connected to the set-top box. A channel 3-4 RF modulator is also
included on-chip. The video encoder supports NTSC, PAL & SECAM
with optional Macrovision 7.1.
The BCM7328 includes dual implementations of Broadcom’s advanced
2D graphics engine, offering true studio quality text and graphics with
extremely efficient use of memory and bandwidth
The BCM7328 also incorporates a complete MIPS64-based
microprocessor subsystem, including 16-KB Instruction cache, 16-KB
Data cache and 2-KB Read Ahead cache. The CPU runs at 250 offering
over 250-DMIPS rating.
