Pruthvi-3 –3rd Gen Broadcast IC’s, Universal TV Demodulator (SL3000),

Saankhya Labs’ SL300x is designed to be the most technologically advanced DTV Demodulator System on Chip (SOC) in the industry. The full featured front-end SOC performs baseband DTV demodulator, FEC decoder, de-interleaver memory and Analog to Digital Converter (ADC) in a single chip.

SL300x will be the industry’s first Software Defined Radio (SDR) based DTV Demodulator that supports all the leading Broadcast terrestrial, cable and satellite TV standards including the ATSC 3.0. The SOC is designed to deliver high performance and high throughput in static and multipath environments.

Powered by Saankhya Labs’ award-winning, patented SDR architecture, SL300x is a power efficient, small foot print device targeted for use in a variety of DTV receiver applications that includes Digital Televisions, Set top boxes, Home theatres and Automotive entertainment systems.

Additionally, the SOC also supports Advanced Emergency Alert to aid and assist in deployment of Advanced Warning and Response network infrastructure across the world.
