NXP Launches Ultra-low Power Multi-band Silicon Tuner for Portable TV

NXP Semiconductors introduced a multi-band silicon tuner (TDA18292) that supports the five global TV standards for portable devices (DVB-T, DVB-H, DVB-SH, T-DMB, ISDB-T) and five prominent frequency bands (VHF, UHF, L1, L2, S-band).

NXP said the ultra-low power, low noise, small footprint and high immunity to other cellular and connectivity standards, makes the new device an ideal TV solution for notebooks, USB sticks, Portable Multimedia Players (PMP), portable DVD players, mobile phones, portable navigation systems (GPS) and other handheld devices -- at a very low cost of less than $2, for high volume quantities.
