The demodulator exploits the quadrature relationship between the two I and Q channels, sufficiently containing all the information available when both channels are sampled at one-half the bandwidth of the full RF bandwidth from which they came.
The single-channel Si218x and dual-channel Si218x2 families enable TV and STB manufacturers to simplify complex video front-end designs and to address combinations of multiple broadcast standards with a single field-proven, low-power and cost-effective demodulator solution.
The CapaNCDT 6200 can be expanded by simply adding a DL6220 demodulator, which provides an Ethernet interface, supporting fast and easy configuration through a web browser.
It inherits all the functionality of the STV0279D -- which has become the de facto industry-standard demodulator with 30 million units shipped to date -- and embeds new features such as four I2C addresses for PVR applications, and TSMF (Transport Stream Multiplexing Frame) capability to support the Japanese market.
The signal is then converted into data by the demodulator and the flight test engineers evaluate the output.
The NXT6000 COFDM (code orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing) Demodulator and FEC (forward error correction) IC is a highly integrated solution for digital terrestrial receiver applications.
primeD is based on design work undertaken by a team of US DTV experts, who came to Micronas as part of its May, 2004 acquisition of LINX Electronics, a leader in 8VSB demodulator design," according to Hans-Juergen Desor, vice president Consumer Products at Micronas.
To provide a receiver design with the demodulator performance, or to set the required demodulator specifications based on the required receiver performance, the specifications need to be made and a measurement method should be proposed.
The new Si2169 device is the first demodulator to integrate the emerging DVB-T2 standard, advanced DVB-S2 standard, and existing DVB-T, DVB-S and DVB-C standards into a single CMOS chip supporting terrestrial, satellite and cable TV broadcast.
The I/Q demodulator comprises two double-balanced MD-145 mixers.
The release of the ATBM8869 further strengthens our technological leadership in the DTV space, and time again makes us the clear choice of demodulator supplier for global TV, STB and module makers.
