“These LNB developments are consistent with our vision of being the best RF provider for leading satellite operators in Europe and Latin America,” said Guil Mediouni, CEO of GT-SAT Int. “Working with MaxLinear has meant we’ve been able to develop LNBs with the performance, power and features that operators in these markets require.”Technical Details The MxL862 has two FSC wideband RF inputs with a single L-band IF output. The MxL862 supports a total RF capture bandwidth of 4.1 GHz. The MxL862 supports FSK, DiSEqC / EN50607 and GT-SAT’s dHello operation on the IF ports. The device comes with a software environment that includes a real-time operating system running on an embedded 32-bit CPU with a complete set of APIs to control the channel stacking engine and the chip interfaces. The ultra small part is packaged in a 10mm x 10mm QFN. The highly integrated device also features all major supporting analog functions, such as broadband input and output filters, RF gain blocks, PLLs and automatic gain control (AGC) functionality. Due to the high levels of system integration, the bill of material (BOM) in end applications is reduced to a minimal number of low-cost, passive components, which enables ultra-compact, low-cost system solutions when compared to existing analog implementations. It is part of the MxL86x product family, which includes the MxL868 and MxL865.
