AUSTIN, Texas -- Silicon Laboratories Inc. (NASDAQ: SLAB), a leader in high-performance, analog-intensive, mixed-signal ICs, today announced the Si2161 and Si2165 digital video demodulators, the smallest, lowest power and highest performance demodulator solutions to support DVB-T, DVB-C and fixed reception DVB-H in a single chip. This represents the first in a new family of mixed-signal demodulators, tuners and receivers Silicon Laboratories is developing for digital and hybrid analog/digital fixed television equipment worldwide. The new Si2161/2165 demodulators are ideal for equipment receiving digital terrestrial and/or cable services including integrated digital televisions (iDTV), Free-to-Air (FtA) or pay-TV set-top box receivers, PC-TV add-on cards and DVD/HDD personal video recorders.

Historically, equipment makers have had to provide multiple front ends for hybrid equipment that supports DVB-T as well as DVB-C. The new Silicon Laboratories demodulators support DVB-T, DVB-C and DVB-H for fixed reception in a single device, enabling equipment makers to simplify their design and reduce their cost by pairing their tuner solution with Silicon Labs’ single-chip, multi-standard demodulators. Both the Si2161 and Si2165 products operate natively in DVB-T mode, the most widely deployed terrestrial broadcast standard in the world including Europe, Taiwan and Australia. The Si2165 adds the DVB-C demodulator mode used for unscrambled and pay-TV cable services.

The Si2161/2165 demodulators are the first in a new family of video broadcast products Silicon Labs is developing as part of a road map to deliver front end receivers that integrate all circuitry from RF input to demodulated output for both digital and hybrid analog/digital modulation standards. Given the range of standards adopted in various geographies, the optimal system partitioning allows customers to use one host processor across platforms while optimizing the receiver for specific regional standards or unique feature requirements, reducing solution footprint and eliminating redundant circuit blocks.

“Silicon Labs has a track record of delivering high-performance RF, mixed-signal products to the market. The Si2161 and Si2165 demodulators represent our entry into video broadcast with the first of a series of highly integrated products that will deliver significant benefits to customers,” said Tyson Tuttle, vice president of Silicon Laboratories. “The Si2161/2165 and our road map to fully integrated receivers will give customers a level of performance, cost savings and flexibility not offered by competing solutions.”

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
