Lytton STB

The ‘Norton’ set top box incorporates a Texas Instrument ADSL2 chipset which is based around the AR7STB design which combines the DSL chipset with a custom TI media processor. This processor incorporates a custom DSP (TMS320DM642) which is responsible for the video decoding and supports WMV9, AC-3, AVC, H264 and MPEG2. The main CPU core is a MIPS 4KEc embedded inside the AR7.
