MAX3543 silicon tuner

From Maxim Integrated Products comes a broadband, multi-standard silicon tuner for worldwide hybrid TVs, as well as terrestrial and cable STBs. Developed using Maxim's high-performance BiCMOS process technology, the MAX3543 offers high tuner performance using a standard IF architecture that ensures

The MAX3543 enables the highest quality signal reception in demanding environments by offering 4dB noise figure and high blocker performance. The device directly addresses key market needs by exceeding CAN tuner performance and eliminating the unwanted spurs common in other silicon tuners. Meanwhile, its innovative design architecture eliminates the need for expensive external components such as SAW filters. This integration enables a 75 percent reduction in space and 25 percent reduction in cost over competing solutions, including can tuners. Implementation complexity is significantly reduced with a low-cost, single-sided, two-layer PCB design, which requires only minimal external components.

The MAX3543 is packaged in a Pb-free, 6mm x 6mm, 40-pin TQFN package, and is fully specified over the 0C to +70C temperature range. Prices start at $6.95 (1,000-up, FOB USA). An evaluation kit is available to speed designs.
