Intel® 854 Chipset and Development Platform
Overview Technical Documents Tools & Software Solutions

The Intel® 854 Development Platform showcases the capability of the Intel® 854 chipset while enabling manufacturers to overcome many of the traditional design constraints which can impact the development of consumer electronic devices.
Product Information
The Intel® 854 chipset is a building block for consumer electronics platforms including IP-Digital Set Top Boxes (IP-DSTB), digital media recorders (DMR) and other consumer electronics devices. This chipset adds support for up to 2 GB of DDR 333 MHz system memory, a 400 MHz system bus to support the Intel® architecture processors and an integrated graphics engine that can be used for sophisticated graphical user interfaces.

The Intel® 854 Development Platform helps you bring new products to market fast. By choosing Intel® architecture to design IP-DSTBs, DMRs and other media-centric products you can adapt your products to the rapidly changing needs of service providers who must provide new services to their customers.
