The E4005 and E4002 consume 1/3 the power of the competition and therefore allow set top box and TV companies to design eco friendly solutions.

David Srodzinski, Elonics’ Chief Executive Officer, said: “These new products are a significant step forward in the art of silicon tuner design.  Using our unique software configurable RF CMOS technology, we are able to offer set top box and television manufactures a single tuner solution that covers all of the major digital TV broadcast standards.  We are able to support many different standards such as DVB-T, DVB-T2, ISDB-T and many more by re-configuring the tuner in software, with unparalleled performance.”

The E4005 IF output tuner has many advantages; they are much easier to route on a PCB compared to traditional high IF output tuner cans due to the lower frequencies involved; the single IF output reduces the PCB footprint; and they are intrinsically much lower power.

The E4005’s programmable multi-band RF filter reduces impact of high level far out-of-band interferers, especially high level VHF Band II signals interfering in the UHF band.  The E4005 utilises Elonics  patent pending ‘DigitalTune IP,  allowing the product to be configured in software to support digital TV standards across the globe.


The E4002 is a zero IF output only pin and software compatible version of the E4005.  Both products are available in a 32-lead 5*5mm QFN, Pb free, RoHs compliant package.  Production volumes of the E4005 and E4002 are shipping now.  Customer evaluation boards and application software are available to help with system integration.
