Shanghai, China, Sept. 2, 2016 - Montage Technology Group Limited ("Montage"), a global fabless provider of analog and mixed-signal semiconductor solutions for the cloud computing, Internet of Things (IoT) and home entertainment markets, today announced the mass production of the industry’s most integrated Hybrid Silicon Tuner M88TC6800 for cable and terrestrial TV receptions.
The M88TC6800 is Montage’s third-generation hybrid silicon tuner, which is fully compliant with DVB-C/T2/T and DTMB standards for digital TV and PAL-D/K/I standards for analog TV. The chip integrates the complete tuner functions into a single compact QFN24 package, including an RF signal processor, a frequency synthesizer, an RF tracking filter, a channel filter, a digital signal processor, a digital-to-analog convertor, power management, as well as all digital and analog interfaces required by the external demodulator and application processor devices. As the industry’s most integrated hybrid silicon tuner, the M88TC6800 eliminates the need for external SAW filter and Balun, and requires only one crystal and the least external number of components to minimize the BOM cost.
Furthermore, the M88TC6800 has excellent performance in rejection of adjacent channel interference and high frequency interference from Wi-Fi or cell phone signals. It also has significantly improved receiving sensitivity of RF signals, thus is able to quickly and accurately capture and amplify the weak RF signals transmitted over the cable or from the TV Tower.
The M88TC6800 makes a perfect match with the HD/SD Decoder SoC from Montage or other mainstream vendors to enable various optimal set-top box solutions for cable and terrestrial TV markets worldwide.
