Conexant Systems announced Friday that Motorola chose its multimedia and networking processors for use in one of its next-generation set-top platforms.
Motorola will incorporate the Conexant chips as part of "a forthcoming next-generation set-top product," the companies said in a statement.
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The set-top, which wasn't identified in the announcement, is "intended to offer consumers a more flexible and compelling entertainment experience" and provide home-networking capabilities, according to the press release.
Motorola is not releasing details of the set-top. "We probably won't even be talking about this for another year," said Paul Alfieri, senior manager of communications for Motorola's Connected Home Solutions business.
In a statement, Marc Kauffman, vice president of engineering for Motorola's Connected Home Solutions business, said: "By incorporating Conexant processing technologies into our next-generation design, Motorola will be able to offer consumers the next level of seamless entertainment, information and communications, in and out of the home."
