ST cable-modem ICs. The chips feature multiple high-speed DOCSIS 3.0 up to 16x4 data and up to eight video channels.

DOCSIS 3.0 provides the framework for home and mobile entertainment to evolve from legacy MPEG to IP video distribution. The extremely high data rates enable set-top boxes and home gateways to deliver video and internet data converged services over a single network and support simultaneous use of multiple connected devices, such as smart TVs, digital video recorders, tablets, smartphones and game consoles in the home.

ST's DOCSIS 3.0 technology is associated with a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor to control routing, switching and telephony functions. The STiD125/127/128 feature multiple high-speed DOCSIS 3.0 up to 16x4 data and up to eight video channels, full spectrum tuner interface, up to three Ethernet ports, up to 2 PCI-e (WiFi DBC) ports and 200Mb/s digital video transport stream output bus. The devices also boast enhanced Internet telephony with PacketCable 1.5 and 2.0 support, and low-power, high-performance multi-core ARM processor, detailed ST.
