Module Aids in TV Tuner Architecture Conversion
Exceeding ATSC, OpenCable, DVBT/C/H, DMB-TH, and ISDB-T standards, Xceive Corporation’s SN5000A SiliconNOW tuner module helps bridge the gap between CAN tuner architecture and silicon-based TV tuner architecture. The component offers plug-and-play physical compatibility with specific CAN tuners, Xceive’s XC5000 silicon tuner, and integrated programmable DSP to optimize hardware. The 50 mm × 27 mm module exhibits a two-in-one CAN-replacement supporting onboard demodulation of NTSC, PAL and SECAM TV standards. The unit comes with Xceive’s QuickTune technology for a complete channel scan of more than 100 channels in less than five seconds. Another available offering includes ChannelVista, Xceive’s advanced picture-in-picture (PIP) television technology, allowing the viewer to watch up to 12 video channels simultaneously with a single tuner. The module presents RF input, CVBS output, and SIF output impedances of 75 O, and VSWR of 2:1 in frequencies from 42 MHz to 864 MHz while operating from a 5 V power supply.
