NXP TDA18211HD silicon tuner for SD/HD set-top boxes

NXP, introduced a new generation of high-definition digital terrestrial silicon tuner, the TDA18211HD, which raises the performance and lowers the costs of set-top box applications.

Dedicated for the European DVB-T standard, this new Digital Terrestrial silicon tuner from NXP reduces overall system cost and design cycles, enabling faster time-to-market while meeting the industry’s demanding performance and application requirements. The TDA18211HD continues to strengthen the fourth generation of NXP silicon tuners focusing on digital terrestrial TV reception around the world.

TDA18211HD silicon tuner offers high quality digital TV reception in a single small solution, reducing bills-of-materials for OEMs. NXP’s TDA18211HD silicon tuner for set-top boxes is now sampling and is expected to be in mass production by Q2 2007.
