Conexant debuts chips for terrestrial STBs
Conexant Systems  announced a new digital video broadcasting-terrestrial (DVB-T) demodulator and worldwide terrestrial and cable tuner, which together form a complete front-end solution for DVB-T set-top boxes (STBs), PC video capture cards, and integrated digital televisions (iDTVs).
The CX24230 DVB-T demodulator integrates an internal microcontroller and memory. The CX24210 tuner supports multiple digital and analog terrestrial standards including DVB-T, ATSC, PAL, NTSC and SECAM. The tuner also complies with global cable specifications including DOCSIS 2.0, EuroDOCSIS, and DVB-cable (DVB-C).
The high level of integration also allows product developers to replace traditional "can" tuners with a much smaller form-factor solution, providing them with greater design flexibility.
