November 28, 2006 -- Intrinsix releases the latest in a string of Silicon Intellectual Property (IP) that is based largely on the Intrinsix Sigma-Delta Modulator (SDM) technology. The Tri-Mode Television IF Subsystem IP (TMTVIF), which has an Intrinsix SDM Analog to Digital Converter (ADC) at it's core, is designed to support tuners for the two major television standards worldwide: Traditional, with a High Intermediate Frequency (IF); Direct Conversion, via the Zero IF mode; as well as a third option, a Low IF mode. The SDM ADC, along with an integrated mixer, converts the analog input signal into a digital output. Delivered as an IP block, this subsystem can be integrated with tuner and demodulator IP to produce a true System on Chip (SoC) solution for TV and Set Top Box developers.

More information about Sigma-Delta Data Converter Technology:
Use of a Sigma-Delta Modulation (aka SD Modulation, SDM or Delta-Sigma Modulation) scheme in the design of Digital-to-Analog Converters (DACs) and Analog-to-Digital Converters (ADCs) allows for very efficient, high performance data converters.
