CARLSBAD, Calif. -- MaxLinear Inc. (NYSE: MXL), a leading provider of integrated radio frequency (RF) and mixed-signal integrated circuits for broadband communications applications, today announced it has sold more than 10 million DVB-T2 tuners globally.
MaxLinear’s DVB-T2 tuners have been popular in set-top box (STB) designs developed for global analog to digital broadcast transitions because they deliver the industry’s best sensitivity performance and rejection of out-of-band interference including 4G/LTE, WiFi and FM signals. The robust automatic gain control (AGC) system design further ensures reliable field performance.
The MxL608 exceeds by a large margin the latest Nordig Unified Specification 2.5.1 as well as all of the specific performance requirements of DVB-T2 operators and STB OEMs.
MaxLinear has seen strong sales from all markets that use the DVB-T2 standard, including countries in western and eastern Europe, Russia and emerging markets including Southeast Asia (Thailand, Indonesia) and Africa (more than 10 countries).
“The performance of the MxL608 has really driven MaxLinear’s leading DVB-T2 market acceptance because STB OEMs know they can develop a best-in-class product that delivers a crisp and clear viewing experience even in markets where broadcast signal and field conditions are unpredictable,” said Brian Sprague, MaxLinear’s Vice President and General Manager for Broadband and Consumer Products. “The MxL608 also delivers low cost, small size and low power draw that are important design factors for analog-digital transition applications.”
