BCM3420

Low-Power Direct-Conversion Cable Tuner

Currently Viewing:

The BCM3420 is a highly integrated, advanced direct-conversion, single-chip silicon tuner.
 
The BCM3420 is specifically designed for use with Broadcom's single-chip cable modem and set-top box devices. With a low BOM cost and a proven reference design, the BCM3420 provides a better alternative to traditional can tuners. Its low-power operation is suited well for applications that require battery backup capability, such as VoIP cable modems. With an RF splitter, the BCM3420 pass-through mode is ideal for use in multituner applications.
