Silicon Labs Announces the Expansion of Si468x Digital Radio Receiver IC Family

Silicon Labs announced the expansion of its popular Si468x digital radio IC family to include new options for AM and AM HD Radio. The Si468x ICs are the most cost-effective single-chip digital radio receivers available that support worldwide radio reception and are certified for the Digital Radio Tick Mark and AM/FM HD Radio. The industry's first monolithic, CMOS-based antenna-input-to-audio-output digital radio ICs, the Si468x receivers are ideal for portable and consumer electronics products supporting digital radio standards including tabletop and clock radios, boom boxes, mini/micro audio systems, home theater systems, docking stations, mobile phones, tablets and personal media layers. The Si468x family features a low-power, multi-band receiver supporting global analog and digital radio standards including AM, FM, FM RDS, AM/FM HD Radio, DAB and DAB+. The Si468x family is one of a few select receiver technologies to be approved by Digital Radio UK (DRUK) for the Digital Tick Mark. This means that consumers who buy Si468x-based DAB radios can be assured of the quality of their radios and their readiness for digital radio reception. The Si468x ICs supporting AM/FM HD Radio reception are pre-certified by iBiquity, the sole developer and licenser of HD Radio technology, enabling designers to develop and certify their HD Radio products in the shortest imeframe possible. The Si468x receiver family offers a complete, cost-effective digital radio solution integrating the RF tuner, baseband and audio processing circuitry on a single die. The Si468x receivers require a minimal bill of materials (BOM) and consume very low power, making the ICs ideal for the portable and mainstream consumer electronics markets. The family's high level of integration provides significant benefits compared to traditional radio solutions including reduced system complexity, easier validation and testing, and improved reliability and manufacturability. Si468x Digital Radio Receiver Family Highlights includes AM HD Radio support and AM capabilities added to the DAB/DAB+ line of receivers, approved for Digital Radio Tick Mark, certified by iBiquity for AM/FM HD Radio reception, pin- and API-compatible DAB and HD Radio receiver ICs enabling one single design to support both digital radio markets, worldwide AM and FM band support allowing future IBOC adoption beyond North America, Integrated VCO, PLL, synthesizer and high-fidelity stereo audio DACs for reduced board area and BOM cost, integrated high-performance DSP for audio decoding and flexible, advanced audio processing enabling improved audio performance, the best sensitivity and selectivity of any single-chip digital radio receiver in the industry, lowest power consumption of any digital radio receiver, enabling extended battery life for portable products, Si468x master-mode/slave-mode modules available to speed design-in and time to market, wafer-level chip-scale package (CSP) option enabling complete, compact radio receiver system with only 12 external components in < 100 mm2 area Pricing and Availability Samples and volume quantities of Silicon Labs' Si468x digital radio receiver ICs are available now.

Silicon Labs Introduces the Next-Generation Si4790x Tuner IC Family

Silicon Labs introduced the automotive tuner IC family designed to deliver best-in-class AM/FM and HD Radio/DAB/DMB digital radio performance for demanding car radio systems. Silicon Labs' next-generation Si4790x tuner IC family delivers a new benchmark for car radio reception performance while delivering the lowest system cost. The Si4790x family also provides exceptional flexibility and scalability for Tier 1 automotive infotainment suppliers and aftermarket car radio makers worldwide. The Si4790x family leverages Silicon Labs' patented digital low-IF architecture and RF in CMOS technology pioneered more than 12 years ago. Silicon Labs introduced its first single-chip broadcast audio IC products nearly 10 years ago, redefining how AM/FM tuner ICs were designed into analog-intensive consumer electronics products by providing a highly integrated solution that reduced component count by more than 90% and board space by more than 60%. To date, Silicon Labs has shipped more than 1.2 billion 'radio-on-a-chip' ICs, culminating with the introduction of the Si4790x family, the industry's most advanced automotive tuner IC. The superior linearity of the Si4790x tuner's integrated RF front-end, combined with comprehensive AM/FM firmware running on a high-performance on-chip radio DSP, sets a new bar for key automotive radio metrics such as sensitivity in weak signal environments, selectivity in the presence of blockers, and immunity to multipath fading and distortion. Si4790x tuner family supports all worldwide broadcast radio bands including AM/FM, longwave (LW), shortwave (SW), NOAA weather band, FM RDS decoding, and AM/FM HD Radio and DAB reception (Band-III and L-band). Leveraging the Si4790x family, Tier 1 suppliers can make the most of their R&D investment across multiple product segments, from cost-effective single-tuner designs to premium multi-tuner systems, with one modular architecture. All tuner devices in the Si4790x family share the same application programming interface (API) allowing infotainment system developers to reuse the same software across different product lines and market segments. The Si4790x tuners' high level of single-chip integration enables developers to significantly reduce board space, the external bill of materials and overall system cost. The tuners integrate active loop-through buffers for all radio bands, eliminating external active splitters. Integrated active loop-through buffers greatly simplify the front-end RF design, further reducing cost. Samples of Si4790x automotive tuner ICs are available now. To help accelerate development of Si4790x-based systems, the Si4791-3T1A-EVB evaluation kit is available for USD 1,495.

Silicon Labs Introduces the Next-Generation Si534x 'Clock-Tree-on-a-Chip' Portfolio

Silicon Labs introduced the industry's most frequency-flexible clock solutions offering jitter performance for high-speed networking, communications and data center equipment serving as the foundation of Internet infrastructure. Silicon Labs' next-generation Si534x 'clock-tree-on-a-chip' portfolio includes high-performance clock generators and highly integrated multi-PLL jitter attenuators. These single-chip, ultra-low-jitter timing devices combine clock synthesis and jitter attenuation functionality to reduce the cost and complexity of optical networking, wireless infrastructure, broadband access/aggregation, Carrier Ethernet, test and measurement, and enterprise/data center equipment including edge routers, switches, storage and servers. Skyrocketing demands for bandwidth and the growing complexity of Internet infrastructure and data center systems are driving the need for a wide variety of clocks at different frequencies, signaling formats and voltage levels. Jitter performance requirements to support the higher data rates for 10/40/100G networks are also very demanding. Given the limited flexibility and integration of traditional clock solutions, hardware designers are often forced to use a costly and complicated combination of clock generators, jitter attenuators, oscillators and buffers to complete their clock trees. To address this industry need, Silicon Labs' new Si534x jitter attenuators and clock generators leverage frequency flexibility and clock-tree-on-a-chip integration to deliver an efficient, cost-effective solution that combines all discrete timing functions into a single-chip clock IC solution. With Silicon Labs' Si534x family and new ClockBuilder Pro software, high-performance clock configuration has never been simpler or faster. ClockBuilder Pro is designed to help system designers quickly and easily create custom Si534x clocks for their applications. This easy-to-use software integrates the equivalent of more than 150 engineer-years of Silicon Labs' DSPLL(R) timing technology and applications expertise to simplify clock tree design and speed time to market. Using the intuitive ClockBuilder Pro GUI, designers can quickly generate sophisticated device configurations in less than five minutes, minimizing software development overhead.
