NXP Raises the Bar for High-Performance Silicon TV Tuners with TDA18275
NXP Semiconductors today announced the TDA18275 – its latest high-performance silicon tuner for worldwide terrestrial and cable TV reception. The TDA18275 features a fully integrated RF tracking filter as well as an integrated FM filter, and is available in a small 5-mm x 5-mm 32-pin HVQFN package, significantly reducing bill of materials costs.With an ultra-low noise figure of 3.5 dB and excellent return loss, the TDA18275 provides high sensitivity combined with enhanced immunity to analog and digital ACI (adjacent channel interference), as well as stronger immunity to LTE and Wi-Fi interference. Further, the TDA18275 hybrid silicon tuner operates from a single 3.3V power supply while consuming only 750 mW. Now sampling with qualified customers, the TDA18275 is scheduled for volume production in July 2013.
“For TV set manufacturers replacing older can tuners with silicon tuners, NXP offers the most cost-effective high-performance silicon tuner solutions, optimized for direct on-board integration. With the TDA18275 hybrid silicon tuner, we continue to raise the bar in power efficiency and robustness, while reducing overall application size and BOM costs,” said Fabrice Punch, international product marketing manager, NXP Semiconductors. “NXP’s expertise in RF and analog and digital TV standards, combined with our strong manufacturing supply chain, positions us as a highly reliable partner – now supplying silicon tuners to 13 of the top 15 TV brands in the world.”
