Silicon Labs Launches Low-Power Digital Set-Top Box Tuner Family

Silicon Labs introduced a new family of high-performance digital set-top box (STB) tuner ICs designed to reduce the cost, complexity and power consumption of cable, terrestrial, hybrid terrestrial/satellite and IP-based STB products. The company's new Si2144 and Si2124 digital tuner ICs help STB designers reduce board space and bill of materials (BOM) cost through a combination of single-chip integration and the smallest package size. The Si2144/24 tuner family’s integrated loop-through technology also helps reduce system-level cost and power consumption. The company's Si2144/24 family offers a digital tuner solution for the global cable, terrestrial and hybrid terrestrial set-top box market, which is forecast to exceed 100 million units this year. The company's Si2144/24 digital tuners are supported by China’s terrestrial and cable STB system-on-chip (SoC) suppliers. Based on company's six generations of video tuner technology and digital low-IF architecture deployed globally in more than 400 million TVs, the Si2144/24 family is optimized for the performance, cost, footprint and green energy requirements of STB applications. The Si2144/24 family supports all worldwide cable and terrestrial STB standards (ATSC/QAM, DVB-T2/C2/T/C, ISDB-T/C and DTMB). Loop-through (LT) technology – routing the RF input signal to an RF output and making it available to other video devices such as a legacy analog TV – is a key feature required by many STB designs. The Si2144/24 ICs are the smallest, most power-efficient STB tuners available with integrated LT technology, consuming less than 500 mW, which minimizes total STB power consumption and reduces power supply and thermal requirements as well as system cost for multi-tuner designs. In addition to integrating active LT technology (available when the STB is powered on), the Si2144/24 tuners feature “off-through” passive LT technology, which delivers LT capability when the STB is powered off or even unplugged. Passive LT minimizes the STB’s standby power consumption, enabling STB makers to promote their products as “eco-friendly” by helping consumers save energy. All competing CMOS STB tuners require costly external components to implement this “off-through” feature. Available in a tiny 3 mm x 3 mm QFN package, the Si2144/24 ICs are the smallest STB tuners available currently. This ultra-compact package, combined with minimal BOM count, enables the smallest footprint of any STB tuner solution in the market: 0.86 cm2. The Si2144/24 tuners deliver the lowest BOM cost of any STB tuner in mass production. Unlike competing STB tuners, the Si2144/24 devices require no balun at the RF input, and they integrate all tracking filter inductors, dramatically reducing system cost and complexity. Delivering unsurpassed linearity, sensitivity and robust reception over real-world scenarios, the Si2144/24 tuners offer improvements in noise figure across the band and greater immunity to undesired signals such as LTE transmissions without external filtering. The STB tuners deliver 13 dB margin to the industry’s D-Book specification for superior LTE interference immunity, enabling pristine picture clarity proven in more than 400 million TVs worldwide without a single product return due to LTE interference.

Silicon Labs and ARM Collaborate to Drive the Future of Low-Power ARM mbed IoT Device Platforms

Silicon Labs announced a collaboration with ARM to define and deliver the first power management application programming interfaces (API) for ARM® mbed platforms. Adding power management APIs to mbed will bring energy efficiency to standards-based solutions optimized for ultra-low-power, battery-operated connected devices. The new APIs will enable the mbed community of more than 100,000 registered developers to optimize their mbed-enabled ARM Cortex®-M architecture-based designs for the utmost energy efficiency and longer battery life. In addition to enabling developers to manage processor and peripheral states, the mbed power management APIs are designed with real-world, low-energy application scenarios in mind. A new feature exposed by the APIs on Silicon Labs EFM32® Gecko microcontrollers (MCUs) automatically determines and enables the optimal sleep mode based on the MCU peripherals in use, which can dramatically reduce system-level energy consumption. Low-energy optimization is achieved by enabling I/O operations to be executed in the background and by allowing those operations to continue even while the MCU core is in sleep mode or during other processing tasks. The automatic selection of the optimal sleep mode, combined with low-energy, autonomous MCU peripherals, enables developers to significantly reduce the energy consumption of their IoT applications with minimal effort. For example, energy profiles of an application updating a clock display every second on a memory LCD 'a common use case for IoT devices' have shown a current consumption reduction from 1.03 mA to 0.100 mA. Availability: Silicon Labs plans to provide mbed-enabled EFM32 Gecko starter kits in April 2015. Silicon Labs initial platforms supporting mbed will include the Wonder Gecko, Leopard Gecko, Giant Gecko and Zero Gecko starter kits.

Silicon Labs Prevails in ITC Patent Infringement Hearing

Silicon Labs announced that the Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) overseeing the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) Investigation No. 337-TA-910 has issued a Notice of Initial Determination in Silicon Labs’ favor. The ALJ found that all patent claims asserted against Silicon Labs’ products are either invalid or not infringed. The Investigation was instituted in February 2014, based on a complaint filed by Cresta Technology (Cresta) alleging that Silicon Labs and several of its customers infringed three patents related to television tuners. One of the patents was later withdrawn by Cresta. After a full evidentiary hearing, the ALJ found that there was no violation committed by Silicon Labs or its customers and that all patent claims asserted by Cresta were either invalid, not infringed or both. In addition, the ALJ found that Cresta failed to satisfy the ITC’s domestic industry requirement for each patent, resulting in a separate and independent basis for the finding of no violation in the Investigation. The ITC has established a date of June 29, 2015, to issue a final determination.
