PLANO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 24, 2005-- Based on the MT2060 Low-Power Tuner Chip, the Reference Design Offers Manufacturers a Complete Turnkey Front-End Solution for DVB-T Applications Microtune(R), Inc. (Nasdaq:TUNE), reinforcing its support for digital TV applications across worldwide standards, today announced the availability of a Digital Video Broadcast-Terrestrial (DVB-T) Reference Design
Built on Microtune's MicroTuner MT2060 low-power silicon tuner and an STV0361 demodulator from STMicroelectronics, the Reference Design is a ready-to-deploy tuner/demodulator subsystem that provides RF in to transport stream out, including loop through.
It offers manufacturers a high-performance, power- and cost-efficient turnkey front-end that can simplify development of digital TVs, PC/DTV cards, set-top boxes or other consumer appliances based on the DVB-T standards
DVB-T is a standard for digital television and data services that has been adopted throughout Europe and other worldwide markets
Microtune's DVB-T Reference Design complies with the most stringent RF requirements of the Nordig 1.0.1.version of the standard
"We believe we are the only supplier of a silicon tuner meeting all the Nordig requirements," said Albert Taddiken, Microtune's Chief Operating Officer.
"As a result, we offer a DVB-T Reference Design that is engineered to offer top-notch performance in a small form factor and with low power consumption."
The Reference Design facilitates manufacturer's evaluation and development of a DVB-T front end
Reference Design Leverages the Benefits of MT2060 RF Technology The radio frequency (RF) core of the Reference Design is Microtune's MT2060 miniature dual-conversion tuner-amplifier, which is engineered to deliver the lowest power of any high-performance silicon tuner available today
Optimized for excellent sensitivity and phase noise and with superior adjacent channel suppression, the MT2060 Reference Design offers the robust performance demanded by the DVB-T and Nordig standards.
It is engineered to provide superior video and audio reception performance and dependable high-speed, high-density data delivery.
From a consumer perspective, it delivers clear, sharp pictures and clean sound and data with minimal noise and interference
The tuner offers extremely flat overall and in-channel frequency response with a programmable take-over point, providing for maximum design flexibility while minimizing external circuitry.
It also offers very fast lock time enabling fast channel changes
