MaxLinear's New Low-Cost USB Dongle Reference Design Brings Broadcast HDTV to Latin American Consumers
Aug 14 14
MaxLinear Inc. announced that its MxL683 ISDB-T tuner-demodulator is at the new, low-cost USB dongle reference design that brings digital broadcast high-definition (HD) TV to consumers throughout Latin America. The dongle can be used as an add-on for pay TV satellite and IPTV operators, or over-the-top (OTT) Internet video service providers, helping these companies deliver popular broadcast content while keeping set-top box (STB) costs low. The new dongle design also enables free-to-air HD broadcast channels to be delivered to PCs, tablet computers or Netbooks that have a USB port. In addition, the reference design is cost effective for use as a PCI Express (PCIe) module for Netbooks in educational applications, which have recently been funded by several governments in the region. The MaxLinear turnkey reference design consists of an ultra-compact form-factor USB dongle integrating the MxL683 ISDB-T receiver with a USB2.0 interface. The design package includes schematics, PCB layout files, a complete bill of materials (BOM), software drivers and test reports. The MxL683 integrates MaxLinear's super radio tuner core with ISDB-T demodulator. The MxL683 provides excellent rejection of out-of-band interference from 4G/LTE, Wi-Fi, satellite and MoCA signals. The superior forward error correction (FEC) technology enables ultimate AWGN C/N performance. MxL683 also delivers robust system performance under severe field conditions in Latin American countries where strong multi-path echo and co-channel interference are constantly present. The MxL683's performance has been validated by both Anatel, Brazil's National Telecommunication Agency, and by the Mackenzie University Digital TV Laboratory. The MxL683 is a monolithic tuner-demodulator system-on-chip that includes an embedded CPU for adaptive performance control, fast channel acquisition and advanced power management. It also integrates voltage regulation and RF loop-through output. The MxL683 is fully compliant with Brazilian SBTVD-T (ABNT NBR 15604) terrestrial TV receiver specifications. The sensitivity and adjacent and co-channel interferer immunity provide assurance that receivers are reliable and robust in a crowded TV spectrum. The MxL683's power consumption is approximately 470 milliwatts (mW) in active mode. The low power consumption and ultra-small 7 mm x 7 mm 48-QFN footprint make the device an ideal solution for low cost, small form-factor designs as well as multi-tuner applications with personal video recorder (PVR) capabilities.
