Set-top box maker Pace has introduced an ultra-fast, high performance IP client set-top box with MoCA 2.0 and Wi-Fi connectivity. The product was developed in partnership with Broadcom, provider of semiconductor services for wired and wireless communications, using the Xi3 product specification and Reference Design Kit (RDK) software developed by Comcast.
The new Pace client device has graphics, memory and processing power enabled by Broadcom’s BCM7428 IP set-top box SoC client service. The device leverages DLNA and MoCA 2.0 home networking technologies to deliver content and services to any television in the home, and aligns with Comcast’s gateway and client reference architecture. This client device will run multiple software stacks including the RDK from Comcast. The hardware design and functionality also has optional wireless connectivity.
Target deployments are planned for 2013. The new IP Client with MoCA 2.0 will be available for select demonstration by appointment with Pace and Broadcom.
