Konka Selects MaxLinear’s MxL661 Global Hybrid Tuner ICs For New Chinese TV Models

MaxLinear Inc. (NYSE: MXL), a leading provider of integrated radio frequency (RF) and mixed-signal integrated circuits for broadband communication applications, announced today that Konka Group Co. Ltd., one of China’s leading TV manufacturers, has started mass production shipments to Chinese consumers of its latest-generation of LED/LCD televisions incorporating the MxL661, MaxLinear’s latest global hybrid TV tuner IC.

MaxLinear’s MxL661 delivers industry-leading performance for all global analog and digital cable, and terrestrial television reception standards. The MxL661 is built in 65-nm pure digital CMOS process and is based on MaxLinear’s proprietary advanced broadband radio architecture that has been successfully incorporated in the tens of millions of hybrid TV tuner ICs shipped since launch of volume production in 2011.

Konka is one of China’s top 100 electronics manufacturers and produces color televisions, mobile phones, display technology, LED lighting, auto electronics and home appliances.

Konka selected the MxL661 because television broadcast signal quality can vary significantly across many of China’s vast regions, causing reception issues and picture impairments for normal tuners. The MxL661 is ideally suited for this market because of its software configurability, industry best sensitivity and linearity performance and its high level of RF integration that eliminates the need for expensive RF components such as external balun and inductors.

Importantly, the MxL661 is the only CMOS hybrid TV tuner solution that implements on-chip programmable RF-to-IF delay, a function that is necessary for TV content access protection in legacy analog Chinese cable TV systems. This feature, in particular, enables Konka to configure its television sets for non-standard cable TV signal conditions prevalent in China.

“The selection of the MxL661 for the Chinese TV market is a stamp of approval by a prestigious Chinese TV maker and a continuation of the partnership between our companies,” said Brian Sprague, Vice President and General Manager for Broadband and Consumer Products. “We are pleased that our MxL661 ‘Super Radio’ technology is continuing to enable Konka’s design innovation and market growth.”
