Plano, Texas Microtune announced the availability of a digital video broadcast-cable (DVB-C) reference design targeted for the Europe, Asia and China markets. Based on Microtune's MicroTuner MT2060 tuner chip and STMicroelectronics' STV0297E cable demodulator, the reference design is expected to offer a cost-effective turnkey tuner-demodulator subsystem. The DVB-C reference design offers a hardware-and-software solution that allows DVB-C products to be quickly field tested and brought to market. The Microtune/ST reference design comes with design support, including circuit schematics, printed circuit board layout, bill of materials and core software. Set-top box manufacturers can build upon the design or customize it to meet specific application requirements.
