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 the MxL500 family of Full Spectrum Capture (FSC™) tuner-demodulators for DVB-S/S2 satellite television systems.

The six SoCs in the MxL500 family are the first single-chip Full-Spectrum Capture™ satellite front-end devices on the market, supporting between one and four RF inputs and up to eight DVB-S/S2 demodulator outputs.

The performance feature set of the MxL500 family of products is targeted at next-generation satellite gateways and set-top boxes that support multi-screen viewing, personal video recorder (PVR) functionality, emerging “catch-up television” features, and fast channel change capability. With their ability to support up to four RF inputs, the MxL500 receivers also support the needs of next-generation digital satellite antenna Low Noise Block (LNB) applications.
