Saankhya Labs has introduced its latest universal TV demodulator IC. The SL1001 supports various TV standards such as DVB-T/C, ATSC, Clear QAM, ISDB-T/C, DTMB and analog NTSC, PAL and SECAM, the fabless semiconductor company added.

The adoption of the SL1001 will help reduce the number of ICs used in TV sets, lowering component costs for TV makers and also shortening time to market, noted Vishwa Kayargadde, president of the India-based IC design house.

Saankhya has delivered the SL1001 solutions to Japan-based TV makers including Sony and Panasonic for verification, Kayargadde revealed, adding that the company is also eyeing to push the solutions to the STB and Android-based tablet segments.

The company plans to begin volume production of the new TV demodulator ICs in 3Q12 using a 40nm process at Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), Kayargadde indicated.
