The Si2164C integrates digital demodulators for all first and second generation DVB standards (DVB-T/T2/C/C2/S/S2 and S2X) in a single advanced CMOS die. Leveraging Silicon Labs' proven digital demodulation architecture, the Si2164C achieves excellent reception performance for each media while significantly minimizing front-end design complexity, cost, and power dissipation. Connecting the Si2164C to a hybrid TV tuner or digital only tuner, such as Silicon Labs' Si217x/5x/4x devices, results in a high-performance and cost optimized TV or STB front-end solution.

Silicon Labs' internally developed DVB-C2 demodulator can accept a standard IF (36 MHz) or low-IF input (differential) and support all modes specified by the DVB-C2 standard. The main features of the DVB-C2 mode are 4096-QAM, 6 or 8 MHz bandwidth, management of notch insertion (broadband and narrowband), and support of multiple data slices and PLPs.

DVB-T2/T, DVB-C2/C and DVB-S2/S demodulators are next-generation enhanced versions of proven and broadly-used Silicon Labs’ Si2169/68/67/66/64/62/60 devices. DVB-T2-Lite (ETSI EN 302 755-V1.3.1) compatibility is also supported.

The satellite reception allows demodulating widespread DVB-S, DIRECTV™ (DSS), DVB-S2, DIRECTV™ (AMC) legacy standards, and new Part II of DVB-S2 (S2X) satellite broadcast standard. A zero-IF interface (differential) allows for a seamless connection to market proven satellite silicon tuners. Si2164C embeds DiSEqCTM 2.0 LNB interface for satellite dish control and an equalizer to compensate for echoes in long cable feeds from the antenna to the satellite tuner input.

The cable reception allows demodulating widely deployed DVB-C legacy standard (ITU-T J.83 Annex A/C) and the Americas' cable standard (ITU-T J.83 Annex B).

The Si2164C offers an on-chip blind scan algorithm for DVB-S/S2/S2X and DVB-C standards, as well as a blind lock function. The Si2164C programmable transport stream output interface provides a flexible range of output modes and is fully compatible with all MPEG decoders or conditional access modules to support any customer application.

Symmetry Electronics is an authorized Silicon Labs distributor.
