Set Top Box/OTT Media Player

With growing offering of broadcast and on-demand entertainment services, consumers are adopting key platforms such as IPTV Set Top Box (STB) and OTT Media Player to enjoy these services. Both these platforms require a network connection for accessing and delivery of entertainment services. An OTT Player is a compact platform and accesses Internet content using its network connection enabled by an Ethernet PHY device. An IPTV STB provides enhanced functionality and uses an Ethernet switch device to support multiple network connections for delivery of interactive and broadcast services. In both platforms, an Ethernet network connection is essential for delivery of high quality and high definition media content.


Microchip offers an industry leading broad portfolio of 10/100Mbps and 10/100/1000Mbps Ethernet PHY and switch solutions that are high performance, application feature optimized, have small footprints, and utilize the innovative EtherGREEN™ platform, providing flexible options to minimize power consumption for emerging STB and OTT Player applications.
