Silicon transceiver manufacturer Xceive Corp. and Conexant Systems announced today the availability of four jointly developed applications that allow consumers to watch broadcast television on their PCs.

The new applications, which are called PCTV reference designs, feature Conexant’s broadcast audio/video (A/V) decoders and Xceive’s integrated silicon tuner.

The new applications are offered with either a universal serial bus (USB) or PCI Express (PCI-e) interface, and each is offered in two versions. These include a configuration with support for analog terrestrial, advanced television systems committee (ATSC) and Clear QAM industry broadcast standards, as well as a version that supports analog terrestrial and digital video broadcast terrestrial (DVB-T) broadcast standards.

“Our jointly developed, highly integrated PCTV solutions allow manufacturers to drive down system design and bill-of-material costs and accelerate product time-to-market,” said Rene Hartner, vice president of marketing for Conexant’s Imaging and PC Media business. “In addition, the combination of Conexant’s and Xceive’s advanced semiconductor solutions deliver the performance required for high-quality PCTV applications on notebook PCs.”
