We are excited to have been chosen by Sharp as the demodulator
supplier for its most advanced TV tuners," said Dr.
The company intends to use the Hyberium architecture as a basis for its future demodulator
products for the global DTV market.
The new tuner family includes the ORC5310, which integrates a digital and analog TV tuner with an analog TV demodulator
to reduce the design complexity of TVs, set-top-boxes (STBs) and PC TV accessories.
The ADC also offers the on-chip digital demodulator
for reducing processor or FPGA costs, as well as a low-voltage differential signaling (LVDS) or JESD204B serial interface for faster data rates.
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
The demand for single chip hybrid demodulator
continues to grow as people are always looking for better viewing experiences," said Paul O'Donovan, Principal Analyst for Gartner's Technology and Service Provider Research group.
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.
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.
Iberium's products include DTV demodulator
cores for the global fixed- and mobile-DTV market (ATSC, DTMB, DVB, ISDB).
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.
Company's products include DTV demodulator
cores for the global DTV market (ATSC, ATSC-M/H, DTMB, DVB, ISDB).
