Intel® 815E Digital Set Top Box Reference Design

The Intel® 815E Digital Set Top Box Reference Design (DSTB) consists of a single board computer, which when combined with BIOS, O/S, and application software will function as an IP-VoD digital set top box delivering TV out. The board is designed in such a way as to deliver the baseline features within a tight BOM target, but offer select expandability options to meet specific customer requirements (ie. Hospitality DSTB and HDD/PVR applications).

Product Highlights
