MaxLinear Commences Hybrid TV Tuner Shipments To Samsung

Stocks in this article: MXL

MaxLinear Inc. (NYSE: MXL), a leading provider of integrated radio frequency (RF) and mixed-signal integrated circuits for broadband communications applications, today announced it has begun production shipments of its MxL6xx family of software-programmable, low power, global hybrid television tuners in Samsung TVs.

The MxL6xx family of tuners is based on MaxLinear’s “Super Radio” technology that offers exceptional reception performance, silicon integration and power consumption.

“We are excited about Samsung’s selection of our global hybrid silicon tuners for its television products,” said Brian Sprague, Vice President and General Manager, Broadband and Consumer Products at MaxLinear. “Our more than eight years of experience designing and shipping tuners based on pure digital CMOS technology allows us to provide uncompromised performance at the lowest power at highly competitive prices.”

Technical Highlights

The MxL6xx family of tuners, which includes the MxL601, MxL602, MxL603, MxL605, MxL608 and MxL661, delivers exceptional performance for all global analog and digital television reception standards in cable and terrestrial reception environments. They offer market-leading low power consumption of 350mW or less in typical applications. The very low power consumption and compact 4 x 4 mm footprint in a standard 24pin QFN package make it possible for customers to design ultra-small form factors and to support multi-tuner applications.

The software-configurable MxL6xx devices allow manufacturers to design a common front-end for all global broadcast standards. Supported standards include: PAL, SECAM, NTSC, DVB-T/T2, ISDB-T, ISDB-Tmm, ATSC, ATSC M/H, DTMB, ITU-T J.83 Annex A (DVB-C) / B (US Cable) / C (Japan).

Availability

MaxLinear's fifth-generation CMOS tuner, MxL601, has been shipping in million unit quantities since 2011. MaxLinear’s sixth-generation CMOS tuner IC, MxL661, is now sampling with mass production scheduled to start in the third quarter of 2013.
