The MAX2170/MAX2171 direct-conversion to low-IF tuners are designed for Digital Audio Broadcast (DAB) and Terrestrial Digital Multimedia Broadcast (T-DMB)
applications, covering an input frequency range of 168MHz to 240MHz (VHF-III), 1452MHz to 1492MHz (L-Band), and also 87MHz to 108MHz (FM). The MAX2170/MAX2171 achieve a high level of component integration, allowing low-power, tuner-on-board designs. The direct-conversion to low-IF architecture eliminates the need for an IF-SAW filter while providing a balanced 2.048MHz center frequency baseband output to the demodulator.
The MAX2170 provides a buffered reference clock at the crystal frequency, while the MAX2171 outputs a reference at 1/3rd of the crystal frequency. A sigma-delta fractional-N synthesizer is incorporated to optimize both close-in and wideband phase noise performances for OFDM applications where sensitivity
to both 1kHz phase noise and wideband phase noise related to strong adjacents can be a problem.
The MAX2170/MAX2171 are available in a 40-pin thin QFN package (6mm x 6mm) with an exposed paddle. Electrical performance is guaranteed over the extended -40°C to +85°C temperature range.
