Dual DVB-S2 Advanced Modulation Satellite Receiver

Currently Viewing:

Broadcom’s BCM4501 is a fully integrated dual satellite receiver single-chip solution targeted at multituner advanced modulation satellite receiver systems.
The BCM4501 integrates dual CMOS tuners and dual advanced modulation decoders supporting DVB-S2 Broadcast and DVB-S applications. The highly integrated tuner sections are based on existing volume production technologies in Broadcom and on a direct conversion technology to reduce external components and increase performance. The product is suited for PVR-satellite receivers and integrated multifunction home media centers.


  • Direct conversion architecture in standard CMOS process that supports QPSK and 8PSK demodulation
  • Dual advanced demodulation decoders are DVB-S2 Broadcast and DVB-S compliant 
  • Highly integrated, cost-effective front-end solution for advanced modulation satellite systems in a single package 
  • Ideal for next-generation PVR satellite systems and home media centers, supporting DVB-S2 Broadcast, while maintaining backward-compatible support for DVB-S Not Recommended for New Design transmissions
