LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
CES – MaxLinear Inc. (NYSE: MXL), a leading
provider of integrated radio frequency (RF) and mixed-signal integrated
circuits for broadband communications applications, announced today
it will demonstrate its breakthrough terrestrial Full-Spectrum Capture
(FSC™) frontend technology at CES with live multi-channel reception of
over the air (OTA) digital terrestrial television signals.
The introduction of FSC technology for terrestrial applications enables
television and set-top box (STB) manufacturers to offer a truly novel
end-user experience with near-instantaneous channel change, time-shifted
viewing and multi-screen display without the cost, power and size
penalty of discrete solutions.
The CES demonstration will showcase simultaneous reception of four
separate RF channels from over the air (OTA) digital terrestrial
broadcast stations in the Las Vegas area with simultaneous display on a
TV, PC, tablet and mobile phone.
MaxLinear’s FSC technology enables digitization of the entire
terrestrial broadcast or cable frequency spectrum rather than filtering
out individual channels. This technology allows simultaneous tuning to
any number of channels available within the broadcast spectrum by
devices within a household.
MaxLinear’s FSC technology provides TV manufacturers, pay TV operators,
installers and end-users with a spectrum analyzer function that can be
utilized to identify potential interferers like LTE and FM broadcast
signals for active avoidance. It also enables the implementation of
ultra-fast smart-channel scan solutions by identifying active and vacant
“MaxLinear is leading the industry with Full-Spectrum Capture front end
solutions for cable and satellite applications,” said Brian Sprague,
Vice President and General Manager, Broadband and Consumer Products at
MaxLinear. “Applying this technology to our terrestrial front ends is a
quantum leap forward for the industry, which will enable multi-channel
user experience on terrestrial TV systems.”
MaxLinear’s terrestrial FSC™ technology is standard independent and
supports all global terrestrial and cable digital TV standards.
Mass production of the frontend tuner IC used in the demonstration is
planned for 2015.
