LG Electronics USA Inc. has selected Xceive Corp.'s XC5000 silicon tuner for its new lines of high-end flat panel TVs. Xceive claims that its XC5000 is the first silicon TV tuner IC accepted into mainstream TV production for worldwide markets.

XC5000 will be embedded in LG's LCD and plasma screens ranging from 22-inches to 60-inches. The addition of the XC5000's smart tuner architecture on board will help reduce engineering costs across multiple regional products and reduce return rate due to tight production tolerances, protecting customers from product variances susceptible in CAN-based TVs. Additionally, the XC5000's 7mm x 7mm size allows LG to deliver slimmer TV designs with a lower BOM.

According to the company press release, XC5000 is the only global hybrid TV tuner with an on-board DSP controller. LG's production TVs with the new tuner have been field-tested over many months under worst-case scenarios. LG will adopt the XC5000 into performance TVs for mainstream markets immediately. The initial rollout will begin in Europe, Australia and New Zealand, followed by United States, Singapore, Taiwan and Korea.
