Silicon Labs’ multi-standard demodulator can accept a standard IF (36 MHz) or low-IF input for terrestrial and cable standards. The DVB-T2 demodulator supports all modes specified by current DVB-T2-V1.3.1 standard. The main features of the DVB-T2 and T2-Lite modes are 256 QAM with rotated constellations, SISO and MISO support, FEF management, fully autonomous signal acquisition including automatic L1 signaling parsing, scrambling of L1 postsignaling, 600 kHz acquisition range, support for all pilot patterns and DVB-T2/T auto-detection.
The Si2168-C offers an on-chip blind scanning algorithm for DVB-C standard, as well as a blind lock subset mode. The DVB-T and DVB-C, including ITU-T J.83 AnnexB, demodulators leverage field-proven technology of Silicon Labs' Si2164/67/69 family of digital television demodulators.
The Si2168-C programmable transport stream interface provides a flexible range of output modes and is fully compatible with all MPEG decoders or conditional access modules to support any customer application.
