MaxLinear brings out latest mobile TV tuner platform
MaxLinear last week announced the availability of the MXL7001, one of the world’s smallest silicon tuners and the company’s next-generation TV tuner platform.
The MxL7001 is a 1.9mm by 1.9mm single-die, digital CMOS IC tuner that is the foundation for a family of products that can support mobile TV standards worldwide. Featuring digital CMOS process technology, it consumes only 50mW, reducing battery draw and system heat levels. It supports both ISDB-T Segment-1 (UHF) and Segment-3 (VHF) bands without the need for a balun, SAW filter and IF amplifier, allowing a system designer to eliminate these components and reduce both board footprint and BOM costs.
