Si2156

Worldwide High-Performance TV Tuner IC for Analog and Digital Standards

Description Features
The Si2156 integrates a complete hybrid TV tuner - Worldwide hybrid TV tuner
supporting all worldwide terrestrial and cable TV - Analog TV: NTSC, PAL/SECAM
standards. Leveraging Silicon Labs’ field proven - Digital TV: ATSC/QAM, DVB-T/T2/C, ISDB-T/C,
digital low-IF architecture, the Si2156 maintains the DTMB
unmatched performance and design simplicity of the - 42-1002 MHz frequency range
Si2153 while further reducing footprint size and bill of - Compliance to A/74, NorDig, D-Book, C-Book,
materials cost. No external LNAs, tracking filters, ARIB, EN55020, OpenCable™ specifications
wirewound inductors, or SAW filters are used. - Best-in-class real-world reception
- Exceeds discrete MOPLL-based tuners
Compared with competing silicon tuners and discrete
- Highly integrated, lowest BOM
MOPLL-based tuners, the Si2156 delivers superior
- No SAW filters or wirewound inductors required
picture quality and a higher number of received
- Integrated LNAs and complete tracking filters
stations in crowded and near/far real-world reception
- No alignment, tuning or calibration required
conditions. The high linearity and low noise RF
- Digital low-IF architecture
front-end delivers superior blocking performance and
- Integrated channel select filters
higher sensitivity in the presence of strong undesired
- Flexible output interface
channels and interference.
- ALIF to analog TV demodulator or SoC
The Si2156 integrates the complete signal path from - DLIF to digital TV demodulator or SoC
antenna input to IF outputs for both analog and digital - 3.3 and 1.8 V power supplies
transmission standards. Compared to traditional - Standard CMOS process technology
discrete MOPLL-based tuners, the Si2156 eliminates - 5 x 5 mm, 32-pin QFN package
hundreds of external components including external - RoHS compliant
LNAs, tracking filter varactors and inductors (unlike
competing silicon tuners), and SAW filters, resulting in Applications
the simplest, lowest-cost BOM for a hybrid TV tuner. - Hybrid ½-NIM
Interfacing the Si2156 seamlessly with the Si2165 - iDTV (Integrated Digital TV)
DVB-T/C demodulator creates a complete terrestrial - Digital terrestrial and cable STB
and cable DVB-T/C receiver plus PAL/SECAM tuner. - Hybrid PVR and DVD recorder
