Cyfrowy Polsat's new set-top box leverages the STiH237's integrated features to minimize both cost and overall box dimensions. The enhanced performance of ST's chipset ensures smooth end-user experiences and supports the new and advanced services Cyfrowy Polsat is now adding to its portfolio, such as online entertainment. The STiH237 also has low power consumption including a 0.5W standby mode to meet ecodesign requirements, and it supports advanced security features through integrated NAGRA-On-Chip Security and NAGRA CLK smart-card based conditional-access technology.
"We are delighted at the success of this design-in for the STiH237 with Cyfrowy Polsat, one of the most important pay-TV service providers in
"We are pleased to be among the first operators in the world to use ST's latest chipset in our next generation of set-top boxes, securing our position at the forefront in our marketplace," said Dariusz Dzialkowski, CTO at Cyfrowy Polsat.

As part of ST's set-top box SoC family, the STiH237 enables a new generation of ultra-accessible set-top boxes capable of both attracting new subscribers and enabling operators to reach more screens per household through multiple low-cost boxes connected as clients to the central home gateway. High feature integration enables designers to minimize the electronic Bill Of Materials (eBOM), simplify pc-board design, and use low-cost DDR3 memory components. Full software compatibility throughout the product range and with legacy decoder ICs such as the STi7111 helps save development costs and time to market.
By sharing a common ball-out, the complete family of devices comprising the STiH207, STiH237, STiH239, STiH273 and STiH223 enables operators to establish a common hardware platform to target multiple markets such as terrestrial, cable or satellite and offer differentiated products such as PVR (personal video recorder) boxes economically. Offering best-in-class performance, with at least 30% more processing capability than competing solutions and on-chip L2 cache for enhanced support of interactive services, ST's STiH2xx family gives operators the flexibility to deliver new and more advanced services in the future.
