Mercury Computer Systems introduced Echotek Series RFM-1802RF with Synthesizer ADV-1800S Dual-Channel Wideband Microwave Tuner, DCM-V6-XMC Digital Transceiver, and DCM-V5-VXS Virtex-5 Based FPGA Digital Receiver for Electronic Warfare (EW) applications. The new Echotek Series products integrate open-standards technology across the signal processing chain to enhance EW capabilities for the warfighter.
Microtune launched the MT3141 world-standard radio frequency (RF)-to-baseband IC. The Microtune MT3141 is based on a new, highly integrated silicon architecture. The MT3141 single chip enables TV manufacturers to use a smaller, higher-performance, and more cost-effective receiver for next-generation global digital television designs. The MT3141 tuner is available now to early access customers in a 6.0 mm x 6.0 mm 40-pin QFN package. It is priced at $2.00 in high volume. Microtune also offers a MicroCeiver MT3141 evaluation board and reference design.
Fresco Microchip luanched the FM1151, which is a single-chip solution that delivers fully integrated universal analog audio/video demodulation (NTSC, PAL, SECAM) and digital IF processing for the global hybrid terrestrial (DVB-T/T2, ATSC, ISDB-T, DTMB) and cable (DVB-C/ITU J.83) television markets. The FM1151 lowers system solution costs and offers excellent television performance. The FM1151 is in production now and samples are available to qualified customers.
