Single-chip CMOS-based RF Tuner
Athena Semiconductors introduces an ultra low-power, dual-band, RF tuner chip, built using the CMOS process, to enable cost-effective mobile TV applications in cellular phones and other devices such as PDAs and automobile entertainment systems. The ATS7000 is fully compliant with the Digital Video Broadcast-Handheld (DVB-H) standard that enables the reception of multi-channel broadcast TV and audio channels on mobile consumer devices. ATS7000 supports mobile broadcast TV services in both Europe and the US by operating in UHF and L-band, thus providing interoperability across networks and simplifying the design of mobile consumer devices capable of TV reception. It offers desirable levels of performance and integration by using Athena’s OptimRFTM direct-conversion, zero-IF CMOS radio technology.
