Project Description

Saankhya Labs’ SL3000, Universal DTV Demodulator, powered by award-winning patented SDR architecture enables reception of LIVE TV signals on Smart Televisions, Set Top Boxes and Home Gateways.
The full featured front-end SoC performs baseband DTV demodulation and integrates FEC decoder, de-interleaver memory and Analog to Digital Converter (ADC) in a single chip. SL3000 achieves broadcast quality reception without the picture/audio break ups while reaching far & remote households or households in dense urban environments.

  • Fully programmable SDR architecture- based demodulator SoC supports existing & new DTV standards
  • High performance, high data rate, multi-standard demodulator for terrestrial broadcast, satellite and cable TV reception
  • Integrated high precision ADC & PLLs
  • Low power, high performance & small footprint device
