NXP launched the world’s first ultra-low power terrestrial and satellite multi-band silicon tuner today aimed at portable TV use. The tuner is able to support five global TV standards for portable devices including DVB-T, DVB-H, DVB-SH, T-DMB, ISDB-T and five prominent frequency bands VHF, UHF, L1, L2, S-band.

"NXP's new silicon tuner is a significant achievement in driving anytime, anywhere availability of TV," said Philip Sun, Executive Vice President, Afa Technologies. "Afa is taking advantage of our collaboration with NXP to deliver low-power and high-performance TV solutions for portable and handheld devices." Afa Technologies will integrate the TDA18292 silicon tuner with new AF9100 multi-standard demodulator series, building on its successful collaboration with NXP.

Key features of the tuner include support for 1.5/5/6/7/8 MHz channel bandwidths, low cost, excellent sensitivity with less than 3dB noise figure. NXP says that the tuner is ideal for inclusion in portable devices like PMPs, USB sticks, notebooks and more because they can be purchased for less than $2 each in quantities.
