November 10, 2008 – Montage Technology today announced that its GB20600-2006 demodulator M88DD2000 won 2008 EDN China Innovation Award in the Analog / Mixed Signal IC category.
The M88DD2000 is a single-chip digital terrestrial television demodulator that is fully complaint with GB20600-2006 specification and supports multi-carrier and single-carrier modes. The device provides a variety of highlighted features including Dual AGC that can flexibly control both RF and IF gains, digital frequency sweeping technology that enlarges the frequency offset range and thus poses fewer constraints on the design of the front end, and automatic loop lock function that ensures quick loop recovery in case of undesired errors or exceptions. In addition to these features, the low power consumption and high integration are also the outstanding advantages of the M88DD2000. The device integrates ADC, PLL, voltage regulator and other functional modules into one chip. This simplifies the PCB design, saves the BOM cost and speeds the time-to-market of end products.
With all these features and benefits, the M88DD2000 can deliver good reception even under demanding conditions, and is suitable for various portal or mobile digital terrestrial solutions. The device demonstrates best performance in its class, and certainly deserves recognition from EDN and customers.
