Orca Systems Announces DVB-T2 Front-End Reference Design for TVs With Panasonic 
Demodulator LSI 
POWAY, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/04/13 --  Orca Systems, Inc.
(www.orcasystems.com), a fabless RF semiconductor company based in
Poway, Calif., today announced a complete DVB-T2/T/C and analog TV
front-end reference design for televisions with Orca's ORC5310 hybrid
TV tuner and Panasonic Corporation's MN88472 demodulator. 
The ORC5310 is a single-chip, CMOS-based, hybrid TV tuner with analog
demodulator that can receive both analog and digital signals from
either terrestrial or cable networks, worldwide. Panasonic's MN88472
DVB-T2/T/C demodulator IC is a second-generation, low-power device
optimized to meet the stringent DVB-T2 D-Book specification. The
reference design achieves high sensitivity, good interference
rejection and stable reception in multipath environments. The silicon
tuner and demodulator can work with two standard voltage supplies,
thus simplifying the system design and reducing cost.  
"DVB-T2 is rapidly being deployed in many countries throughout
Europe, Africa and Asia," said Guruswami Sridharan, CEO and founder
of Orca Systems. "The turnkey reference design with Panasonic enables
our customers to adopt a pre-qualified DVB-T2/analog front-end
solution with minimal engineering investment and reduced time to
A complete set of design materials -- including schematics, layout
gerbers, BoM list, and GUI evaluation software with integrated tuner
and demodulator drivers -- is now available. The design was tested
with the latest DVB-T2 specifications, including NORDIG and D-Book
standards. For more information please contact sales@orcasystems.com.
