Silicon Labs Introduces The World’s Most Advanced DVB Demodulators For TVs And Set-Top Boxes

Silicon Labs (NASDAQ: SLAB), a leader in high-performance, analog-intensive, mixed-signal ICs, today introduced a new family of universal digital video broadcast (DVB) demodulators that support the latest worldwide DVB standards for cable, terrestrial and satellite reception. Designed to simplify the design of complex, high-performance video front-ends for integrated digital TVs (iDTVs) and set-top boxes (STBs), Silicon Labs’ new Si216x/6x2 family includes the industry’s first dual-channel DVB demodulators targeting multi-receiver iDTV and STB applications.

Silicon Labs’ Si216x/6x2 demodulator family supports all first and second-generation DVB broadcast standards for cable (DVB-C2/C, ITU J.83 Annex A/B/C), terrestrial (DVB-T2/T) and satellite (DVB-S2/S, DSS). Leveraging Silicon Labs’ industry-leading digital demodulation architecture, the single-channel Si216x and dual-channel Si216x2 demodulators enable excellent reception performance for each DVB standard while minimizing front-end design complexity, footprint size, system cost and power dissipation. For TV and STB makers looking to add additional features like personal video recorder (PVR) and picture-in-picture, multiple demodulators are essential components. Silicon Labs’ dual demodulators enable TV/STB makers to simplify and reduce the cost of these multi-receiver designs.

The Si216x/6x2 family includes single and dual demodulators that comply with the recent DVB-C2 specification for cable reception, enabling highly efficient use of existing cable networks for delivery of innovative new services such as video-on-demand (VOD) and high-definition television (HDTV). The rapidly emerging DVB-C2 standard is increasingly important in the German TV market and is also becoming a “must-have” feature for the broader European market. High-end TVs designed for European consumers have begun supporting DVB-C2, and this trend will continue to accelerate. Many of Western Europe’s leading cable operators, representing more than 22 million households, have chosen to adopt the new DVB-C2 standard.

The Si216x/6x2 family supports the latest DVB-T2 specification (ETSI EN 302 755-V1.3.1), also known as DVB-T2-Lite. New markets that are migrating to digital terrestrial TV broadcasting are switching directly from analog to DVB-T2-Lite. DVB-T2 adoption continues to expand to various African countries, as well as Singapore, Russia, India, Malaysia and Colombia. To date, 35 countries have adopted DVB-T2, 19 have deployed and nine are running trials. Silicon Labs currently has the highest market share for DVB-T2 demodulators among all Tier 1 TV manufacturers. The field experience gained as a result of this leading market position is integrated into Silicon Labs’ latest generation of DVB-T2 demodulators.
