It's intended to simplify the design of HD multi-tuner cable set-top boxes, enabling up to six channels with high performance on each stream. It's also designed to eliminate tuner-to-tuner interference as well as the need to add low-noise amplifiers, splitters, SAW filters and incremental crystal oscillators. It will also allow handling of multiple streams of HD 3DTV.

The TDA18260 dual silicon tuner IC for cable is specifically designed for gateways and set-tops, and can easily handle applications needing up to six individual streams. It features an integrated splitter and directly interfaces to a SoC that includes cable demodulators. Where a set-top box design calls for external demodulators, NXP provides a system solution in a companion dual demodulator, the TDA10025.
