ALPS Electric Co Ltd. has developed a series of tuner units for digital terrestrial broadcasting that are suitable for use in digital TVs, STBs, videotape recorders, and PCs.

The TDH series represents a 30 percent reduction in size over previous ALPS digital broadcasting tuners. This was achieved by integrating the PLL circuit, mixer, and oscillator circuit boards into a single custom IC through the use of the company's high-density mounting technology.

The external dimensions of all ALPS digital broadcast tuner units are identical, whether for digital terrestrial broadcasts, digital satellite broadcasts, or digital cable TV.

The three models - Japanese, U.S., and European - have reception modes of OFDM 8K, 8-VSB and QAM, and OFDM 2K and 8K, respectively.

They are priced at ?25,000 ($213.61 at $1:?117.036).
