June 3, 2008 - Montage Technology today announced that its DVB-S tuner M88TS2000 was recommended as one of the "Hot ICs of 2008" by Electronic Engineer Times - China (EET-China).
The M88TS2000 is a single-chip DVB-S tuner. It is one of the 5 RF &
Baseband IC products recommended by the EET-China in 2008. The device,
featuring fast lock PLL and patent-pending DC offset cancellation
technologies, delivers the industry’s fastest settling time and lowest
phase noise in DVB-S direct down-conversion tuners. The device is highly
integrated to greatly reduce the use of external components. It
minimizes the number of pins by incorporating a number of modules into a
single chip, including an LNA, quadrature down-conversion mixers, a low
phase noise and fast locking frequency synthesizer, a DC offset
cancellation loop, loop filters, self-calibrated programmable baseband
channel filters, and a RF AGC loop, thus offering an easy-to-apply DVB-S
front-end solution while helping customers cut down on their BOM cost.
In addition, the device can be operated from a single power supply
ranging from 2.5 V to 3.3 V. The very low power consumption is also one
of the features that allow the device to distinguish between
About "Hot ICs" Recommendation
