MaxLinear Inc. (NYSE: MXL), a leading provider of integrated radio frequency (RF) and mixed-signal integrated circuits for broadband communications applications, announced today that its customer CVT Electronics Group, one of the world’s largest TV solutions providers, will debut several new MaxLinear tuner-based solutions for European countries. MaxLinear has commenced volume production shipments of the MxL601 hybrid TV tuner to CVT to support these ramps. MaxLinear’s proprietary digital CMOS technology helps CVT compete in a cost-sensitive market with tuners that offer high performance, high integration and low cost. MaxLinear’s ‘super radio’ sets a new benchmark for overall reception performance, silicon integration and power consumption. It provides market-leading low power consumption of 300 milliwatts (mW) - 400mW. The combination of the MxL601’s ultra-low power consumption and extremely small 4 mm x 4 mm footprint enables CVT to further innovate its TV board designs for next-generation flat-panel televisions. “CVT’s new product launch is great news for MaxLinear, and it’s made much easier through the use of our global tuner which allows the company to customize boards for different European markets with a minimum of design changes,” said Brian Sprague, MaxLinear’s Vice President and General Manager for Broadband and Consumer Products. “We’re glad to team with a company that is driven to innovate in TV features while maintaining leading edge reception quality, low power consumption and competitive price points.” The MxL601 device is software configurable, allowing 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), DOCSIS and EURODOCSIS. About MaxLinear, Inc.
