Re: Trident? What about BRCM?

Does anyone know whether or not these SOCs have the necessary CAS support HW that STB ODMs need? This appears to be a crucial question for Linaro going forward.

Linaro could really make a splash in the digital home market. ARM has already leveraged Linaro pretty well in order to establish its IP process technology as the dominant force in the mobile market. This is the next logical step.

Hi, iPhony. I mentioned Trident because at one point, after NXP gave up on DTV SoC, Trident was a contender. Broadcom tried to get into the DTV SoC market but gave up. That said, Broadcom has always been a strong player in the STB market.

Both Broadcom and ST are members of Linaro. Whether Broadcom wiill become a founding member of the Linaro Digital Home Group remains to be seen.

You raise a good question as to whether these mobile SoCs have all the necessary CAS support HW that STB ODMs demand. I need to check that.

That, however, might be a question best directed to Linaro -- whose mission is to develop open source software for ARM SoCs.

Hi Junko - You mentioned Trident. I think you meant Entropic. Also no mention of BRCM which has market leadership in STBs today. Also no mention of ST, which appears to be making a comeback. Will these mobile SoCs have all the necessary CAS support HW that STB ODMs demand or is SW-based DRM becoming the new norm? Certainly on the power side, the mobile SoC contingent has a strong lead.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
