DVB Chipset

Conax evaluates all chipsets used for pairing the Client device with our smart cards. We have carefully chosen a selected group of chipset manufacturers that have a license with Conax. The chipset manufacturers must prove that their chipsets will be conform with our requirements, and can pass our tests. Having done so the chipset will build a solid basis for designing a secure Client device or Set Top Box. With more than 200 evaluated chipset, there is one out there for practically any use within the broadcast industry. All chipsets are given a maximum security level by Conax which reflects how secure the chipset is in terms of being hacked.

To become a chipset partner: Conax is currently not seeking new chipset partners
