Silicon Tuner for Large Screen Hybrid TVs
Xceive’s next generation silicon tuner, the XC5000, is optimized for large screen hybrid televisions, is an alternative to conventional CAN tuners and provides desirable sensitivity, adjacent channel, phase noise and dynamic range. For analog televisions, the tuner meets an unweighted signal-to-noise-ratio of 54 dB and a noise figure of <6 dB. For digital televisions, the XC5000 is said to exceed all worldwide television standards including A74, OpenCable, and Nordig Unified requirements providing true high definition television for both terrestrial and cable reception. By adjusting the gain of the RF front-end blocks in real time, the end user viewing experience is optimized regardless of external environmental changes on the received television signal. An integrated programmable DSP optimizes the hardware to achieve desirable tuner performance. With this DSP, the on-board filters can be configured to meet all television standard requirements.
