TDA18273 supports worldwide analog and digital TV standards

EINDHOVEN, Netherlands — NXP Semiconductors N.V. (Nasdaq: NXPI) today announced the TDA18273 – a unique silicon tuner integrating immunity to wireless network interference from wireless LAN and mobile phones. This is particularly important as a growing number of TVs today introduce WLAN IP TV or Google TV capability. The TDA18273 hybrid silicon tuner supports worldwide TV standards – both analog and digital – and functions as a single universal tuner platform for terrestrial and cable TV reception. With an extremely low noise figure of 4dB, the TDA18273 silicon tuner offers significant performance improvements over traditional can tuners, and can be used on board or in a tuner can. By using the TDA18273, system designers can also achieve a small tuner size that streamlines the physical design of LED-backlit LCD TVs. The TDA18273 will be demonstrated upon request at 2011 International CES, in the NXP demo suite at the Wynn Hotel and Casino, and is available immediately.
