LONDON -- Entropic (Nasdaq:ENTR), a world leader in semiconductor solutions for the connected home, today announced its System-on-a-Chip (SoC) solution is powering the world's first hybrid PowerPlug set-top box (STB), the DCP5205 from EKT (Eagle Kingdom Technologies), a leading supplier of advanced STB solutions. The new DCP5205 leverages Entropic's low power design SoC and plugs directly into the main power socket eliminating the need for a separate power adapter commonly required in today's hybrid STBs.

Many global operators are looking for smaller form factor STB solutions that are virtually "invisible" in connecting the cable. With the DCP5205, EKT has designed the full functionality of a STB into a plug socket. The new device is small enough to fit behind a flat panel TV set, and offers an optimal user experience that boasts built in Wi-Fi, RF4CE remote reception and retains support for broadcast quality conditional access security (CAS).

"We believe our new DCP5205 Hybrid PowerPlug STB is a game changing solution that will enable operators to deliver all the functionality and interactive TV experiences subscribers expect from their STB today, but in an exciting new form factor," said Richard Smith, CEO of EKT.

"In working with Entropic, we collectively sought to develop a STB solution that focused on low power, high performance and operator-class security."

The DCP5205 is a high performance hybrid STB solution and uses Entropic's ARM(R) Cortex(TM)-A9 CPU-based SoC with IP-STB features, integrated multi-tuner cable reception, advanced security and DRM protection for operators' premium content and application services.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
