A Universal silicon TV Tuner with a compact synthesizer in 0.18μm CMOS
2013 Edition, November 1, 2013 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

A 45MHz to 1002MHz direct conversion Universal TV Tuner (UTV) supports world-wide TV broadcast standards, such as ATV (NTSC, PAL, SECAM), DTV (ISDB-T, DVB-T, DVB-T2, ATSC, DTMB, DVB-C/C2), EN55020 etc. The tuner exhibits less than 5.5dB noise figure (NF),...

A scalable architecture for fully integrated multi-TV tuners
2017 Edition, April 1, 2017 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Silicon TV tuners have recently achieved and surpassed bulky CAN tuners in terms of circuit performance, providing TV manufacturers lower-cost, smaller foot-print, and more reliable solutions. Silicon TV tuners also made packing...

RF test accuracy and capacity enhancement on ATE for silicon TV tuners
2016 Edition, November 1, 2016 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Silicon TV tuners have dominated the tuner market, but it remains challenging to accurately test their RF parameters, especially Noise Figure (NF) in a production environment. Variations in testers, test boards and physical environment can contribute...

A 6.5-μW 70-dB 0.18-μm CMOS Potentiostatic Delta-Sigma for Electrochemical Sensors
2018 Edition, July 1, 2018 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

This paper presents the design of a low-power potentiostatic second-order continuous-time (CT) delta-sigma modulator $( \Delta \Sigma \mathrm {M})$ for the amperometric read-out and A/D conversion of electrochemical sensors. The proposed architecture reuses the sensor itself as...

This work presents the design and characterization of Explorer-0, a Monolithic Active Pixel Sensor (MAPS) developed in the framework of the R&D activity for the upgrade of the Inner Tracking System (ITS) of the ALICE experiment at CERN. The Explorer-0 chip has been...

A Multiband Mobile Analog TV Tuner SoC With 78-dB Harmonic Rejection and GSM Blocker Detection in 65-nm CMOS
2013 Edition, Volume 48, May 1, 2013 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

A 48-885-MHz ultralow-cost high-performance mobile analog TV (MATV) tuner with an improved harmonic rejection design algorithm achieves 5.5 dB/4.5 dB noise figure at VHF and UHF bands, respectively, and adjacent channel interference (ACI) ${\rm N}+1/{\rm N}+2$...

Color TV: How One Man's Obsession Produced a Technology Revolution
January 7, 2016 - IEEE GlobalSpec

With the move to digital broadcast TV over the past decade, it's easy to forget the color TV standard that served viewers well for more than five decades. It's a story of engineering and production innovation across many dimension; of extremely clever, all-analog signal...

The lure of decentralization
2017 Edition, Volume 54, November 1, 2017 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

IN THE MOST RECENT SEASON of the TV comedy "Silicon Valley," lead character Richard Hendricks is obsessed with trying to create his dream vision of a decentralized Internet. This theme did not go unnoticed in the print media, as a number of...

A 40MHz-to-1GHz fully integrated multistandard silicon tuner in 80nm CMOS
2012 Edition, February 1, 2012 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

To address a worldwide market, silicon tuners have to support a wide range of frequencies and standards, motivating the use of architectures inspired by the software-defined-radio paradigm. DVB-T, DVB-C, ATSC-A/74 as well as cable modems (DOCSIS) and analog...

SiP Tuner With Integrated LC Tracking Filter for Both Cable and Terrestrial TV Reception
2007 Edition, Volume 42, December 1, 2007 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

A silicon tuner has been designed for the reception of analog or digital TV signals from a cable or a terrestrial network. It exhibits 5 dB NF over the 42-870 MHz frequency range and integrates a self-calibrated LC tracking filter. This allows 55 dB...
