MaxLinear introduces hybrid digital/analog TV tuner

October 19, 2009

In early September, MaxLinear launched the MxL1xxSF terrestrial TV tuner/demodulator system-on-a-chip. That was followed a few weeks later by the ultra-tiny MxL703RM mobile TV tuner chip. Now, the company is introducing the MxL301RF digital/analog silicon tuner that can be used for big- and small-screen, terrestrial and mobile TV applications.

At 5mm x 5mm in a 32-pin QFN package, the MxL301RF features a small footprint and low power consumption: 400mW. The MxL301RF integrates SAW filter function, LNAs, tracking and loop filters.

These include: ATSC, DVB-T, DVB-H, ISDB-T 13-segment, DMB-T (H), NTSC, PAL and SECAM. In addition, the MxL301RF also supports digital cable standards including ITU-T J.83 Annexes A and C [DVB-C] for Europe, China and India and Annex B [North American Cable], DOCSIS and EURODOCSIS. Standards support is software configurable, allowing OEMs to unify front-end design for all global markets. The MxL301 is sampling now and will be available to key customers in Q4/2009.
