MaxLinear MxL603 Tuner Selected By Top-Tier Set-Top Box Manufacturers

MaxLinear Inc. (NYSE: MXL), a leading provider of integrated radio frequency (RF) and mixed-signal integrated circuits for broadband communications applications, today announced that it has more than 40 confirmed design wins for its latest generation silicon TV tuner, the MxL603. The MxL603 meets all worldwide cable and terrestrial broadcast specifications, making it the ideal solution for a wide variety of cable and terrestrial set-top box products.

“The MxL603 has been a huge success in the marketplace,” said Brian Sprague, vice president and general manager at MaxLinear. “It’s the ultimate combination of best-in-class performance with ultra-low power, design flexibility and very competitive pricing that makes the MxL603 extremely attractive to our set-top box customer base.”

Because of its ability to support all worldwide digital cable and terrestrial broadcast standards, the MxL603 has been rapidly adopted by virtually all leading set-top box manufacturers, across a variety of market segments including DVB-T2, DVB-T, ATSC, DTMB, ISDB-T and DVB-C.

Next-generation set-top boxes based on MaxLinear’s new MxL603 silicon tuner are already under development and will enable manufacturers to achieve a level of RF performance that was previously unobtainable. In typical emerging DVB-T2 markets, field reception issues are common due to the presence of multiple RF interference signals and a crowded analog TV spectrum. The MxL603 is able to operate in this type of difficult reception environment without any external LNA or additional on-board filtering.

The MxL603 performance also provides protection against interference from future LTE/4G handset and base-station transmissions, which are known to cause severe reception issues in set-top boxes with low-performance tuners.

“Our digital CMOS technology is the key to delivering the low power consumption, high performance and small size that are major reasons we’ve had such great success in DVB-T2 set-top boxes,” Sprague said. “Our tuner technology enables consumer products to be smaller, more environmentally friendly and more robust in the very difficult reception environments typical in emerging market countries.”
