MAX2136 TV tuner

From Maxim Integrated Products comes the MAX2136 digital terrestrial TV tuner for ISDB-T and DVB-T applications.

Combining low power consumption with excellent performance, the device achieves a low noise figure of 3.8dB while only consuming 210mW. Additionally, the tuner supports the reception of signals as large as 10dBm while maintaining an excellent sensitivity of -99dBm.
