NXP Semiconductors and ARM, will showcase the recently announced NXP 847x/8x/9x SoC family, which is based on multiple ARM Cortex processors, at CES 2010. The NXP PNX847x/8x/9x (Worst Product name ever!) represents the world's first fully integrated 45nm Set-Top Box (STB) SoC platform incorporating multi-channel broadcast receivers.
The NXP PNX847x/8x/9x utilizes the ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore and ARM Cortex-M3 processors.

Based on the high-performance, power-efficient ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore processor architecture, the NXP PNX847x/8x/9x delivers advanced system level performance for secure, multi-room DVR video streaming on home networks and for fast execution of Java-based STB middleware engines. Combined with NXPs rich set of hardware and DSP-based content decoding technologies, the ARM Cortex-A9 processor, with its comprehensive internet software ecosystem, delivers industry-leading performance for user interface environments based on Adobe Flash and web browser technologies. By adopting the ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore processor for the STB market, NXP also benefits from the comprehensive and expanding ARM ecosystem.

Dedicated hardware for flexible content format decoding, alongside the ARM architecture optimizations for Javascript and Flash Player 10 components, ensures that the NXP PNX847x/8x/9x can deliver the most responsive and robust user experience for online VOD and other content delivered via the internet. In addition to the superb power efficiency, the PNX 847x/8x/9x family also features a 3D graphics processing unit to render advanced programming navigation user interfaces, games and other 3D content.

The new NXP PNX847x/8x/9x is currently available in sample quantities.
