Broadcom buys switch chip manufacturer, develops terrestrial HDTV chipset.

Broadcom Corp. is introducing an end-to-end chipset for receiving and displaying terrestrial high definition television (HDTV).

The Broadcom chipset provides TV and set-top box manufacturers with a vestigial side band (VSB) receiver and 2D/3D video graphics subsystem for standard definition television (SDTV) and HDTV displays.

The system combines the new Broadcom BCM3510 HDTV cable TV receiver with Broadcom's previously-announced BCM7020 single-chip-set-top box system. The BCM3510 is an integrated VSB and QAM receiver, which supports both the North American ATSC Grand Alliance broadcast TV standard and North American cable TV standards.
