Multistandard RF-to-digital converter

  • 22-Feb-2010 09:45 EST

Based on advanced radio frequency (RF) and digital silicon technologies, Microtune's MT3511 RF MicroDigitizer is an RF-to-digital converter that brings software defined radio (SDR) to the global automotive industry. The MT3511 is a key front-end component in the SDR architecture. Based on Microtune’s next-generation, highly integrated RF MicroDigitizer architecture, the MT3511 is a specialized, automotive-grade RF-to-digital converter designed to work with generic high-performance digital signal processors (DSPs) and multimedia processors to enable the SDR solution. The device combines the functions of an RF tuner and an advanced analog-to-digital converter in a single miniature chip. It receives and tunes a broadcast signal from a car antenna and then converts the signal from analog to digital format for processing in software by a DSP or multimedia processor. SDR enables automotive manufacturers to flexibly deliver popular consumer features by using common hardware that is configurable, scalable, and upgradeable via software.
