NXP digital satellite tuner IC CX24113A Highly integrated, worldwide satellite silicon tuner The CX24113A is NXP’s third generation direct down-conversion satellite tuner RF IC intended for operator-based digital satellite networks and free-to-air systems. Key features Ñ Single-chip RF-to-baseband satellite receiver Ñ Zero-IF architecture eliminates the need for image reject filtering Ñ Variable baseband filters for optimal interference rejection Ñ Auto-tuning machine eliminates the need for software calibration Ñ Very low power consumption Ñ Small (6 mm x 6 mm) footprint Ñ Lead-free package Applications Ñ DSS/DVB set-top boxes Ñ Digital VCR (DVR) Ñ Commercial digital video, audio, and data receivers The CX24113A is a highly integrated satellite tuner solution that incorporates an advanced Fractional-N synthesizer, I2C serial interface, a fully integrated local oscillator, and variable baseband filters. The device has an improved power supply rejection ratio (PSRR), requires a single +3.3V supply, and features very low power consumption. The CX24113A has a built-in auto-tuning machine that eliminates the need for software calibration and accelerates the calibration time. The on-chip fractional synthesizer enables fine frequency step size without adversely affecting lock time. The CX24113 does not require a balun, thus reducing external bill of materials (BOM) cost. Its highly integrated design saves valuable board space and simplifies RF layout. CX24113A features Ñ RF input: 925–2175 MHz Ñ Input power range: -20 to -90 dBm Ñ Symbol rate: 1–45 MSps Ñ Noise figure: 10 dB, typical Ñ Input IP3 at minimum gain: 10 dBm, typical Ñ Baseband filter bandwidth: 3–40 MHz Ñ Output voltage: 0.5 Vp-p @ RL > 1 k_ Ñ Operating temperature: 0–85º C Ñ Package type: 36-pin, Pb-free, QFN The company’s broad portfolio of semiconductor products also includes client-side xDSL and cable modem solutions, home network processors, broadcast video encoders and decoders, digital set-top box components and systems solutions, and dial-up modems. In addition to its IEEE 802.11a/b/g-compliant WLAN chipsets, software and reference designs, NXP offers a suite of networking components that includes solutions for applications based on HomePlug® and HomePNA™. Additional products include a complete line of asymmetric and symmetric DSL central office solutions, which are used by service providers worldwide to deliver broadband data, voice, and video over copper telephone lines.
