MaxLinear’s Four-Channel Receivers Bring Multi-Channel TV To Mid-Tier Satellite Markets

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 the MxL540 product family – MxL541, MxL542 and MxL544 – of four-channel tuner-demodulators for DVB-S/S2 satellite systems.

These new 40nm digital CMOS products, which reduce overall system costs, are aimed at manufacturers of single and dual-channel satellite systems to upgrade to four-channels and allow customers to watch these channels from their televisions, tablet computers, personal computers or smartphones.

MxL540 products feature MaxLinear’s Full-Spectrum Capture™ (FSC™) technology, which digitizes the entire 950-2150 MHz satellite spectrum and replaces up to four discrete tuners and demodulators with a single chip. MxL540 products have one to four inputs and can output up to four channels.

MxL540 products are the latest addition to MaxLinear’s MxL500 family of satellite FSC TV receivers. This family is designed to exceed the signal reception performance and low power needs of tomorrow’s satellite systems that deliver multi-screen viewing, personal video recorder (PVR) functionality, emerging “catch-up television” features and fast channel change capability.

“Mid-tier satellite markets are on the cusp of migrating from single or dual channels to multi-channels, driven largely by multiple TVs in homes, catch-up TV, PVR, and multi-screen viewing,” said Brian Sprague, MaxLinear Vice President and General Manager, Broadband and Consumer Products. “Leveraging FSC technology, the MxL540 product family is ideally positioned to enable this progression for operators and OEMs allowing them to deliver systems with industry leading power and performance at compelling price points.”

Technical Highlights

MxL541 and MxL544 can receive L-Band (950-2350 MHz) spectrum and they have one and four RF inputs respectively. The MxL542 has two RF inputs that can receive Extended L-Band (300-2350 MHz) spectrum on each of its inputs. All these devices are available in very small form factor, pin-compatible 10mm x 10mm QFN packages ideally suited for minimizing system-manufacturing costs.
