MaxLinear MxL603 Selected By Nuvyyo For Innovative Tablo HDTV ATSC Broadcast DVR

MaxLinear Inc. (NYSE: MXL), a leading provider of integrated radio frequency (RF) and mixed-signal integrated circuits for broadband communications applications, today announced that Nuvyyo Inc. has selected the MxL603 global hybrid tuner for its Tablo HDTV broadcast DVR system.

Nuvyyo’s Tablo is the first broadcast TV system that combines the functionality of a whole-home DVR and the convenience and mobility of a tablet computer app. Tablo plugs into any HD antenna to capture free broadcast network programming. Customers can view their Tablo’s content on any screen at home, or on the road anywhere they have wireless broadband Internet access via a Tablo app. In some early urban test markets, Nuvyyo has found that Tablo can tune to nearly 100 HD channels.

Nuvyyo engineers chose the MxL603 after an extensive evaluation that demonstrated the tuner’s best-in-class performance, low power consumption and compatibility with Tablo’s demodulator and processor. The MxL603 makes use of MaxLinear’s “super radio” technology to provide superior rejection of out-of-band interference from 4G/LTE, Wi-Fi, MoCA and EoC signals, without the need for expensive external filters associated with competing solutions.

The small 4mm x 4mm size of the MxL603 and its low power draw of 350 milliwatts meant that Nuvyyo could develop dual-tuner and quad-tuner models of Tablo and still stay within its form factor and power budget.

“While performing the component evaluation for the ATSC tuner, it was critical for us to select high performance, low power, low cost and compatibility with a demodulator partner,” said Grant Hall, Nuvyyo Chief Executive Officer. “Other ATSC tuners were considered and although they may have excelled in one particular criterion they fell short in others. In the end, the MaxLinear MxL603 was the clear leader for our product.”

“Tablo is pioneering a new market niche and it has to deliver the best possible picture to be competitive, so tuner performance is a big differentiator,” said Brian Sprague, MaxLinear Vice President and General Manager. “The MxL603 is an ideal solution for this application, considering the low power draw, interference immunity and small size that this form factor demands. The fact that Nuvyyo picked our part after such an intensive and comprehensive evaluation makes this design win a great accomplishment.”
