Microtune ships 50 million TV tuner chips
Microtune announced last week that it has shipped more than 50 million MicroTuner single-chip silicon TV tuners.
Microtune marked the milestone by honoring Scientific-Atlanta, a Cisco company and Microtune's largest customer, with a commemorative award. Scientific-Atlanta includes up to four Microtune tuners in its set-top box architectural designs and has pioneered cable set-tops that feature HD digital video, personal video recording functions and home networking services.
Microtune invented the single-chip silicon TV tuner, and today holds 68 patents on RF integrated-circuit technology and other inventions.
