At 8.1 x 5.25 x 1.85 inches, the NV20 Pro receives digital 1080p HD television signals directly off-air, and features an integrated state-of-the-art LNA (low-noise amplifier) based on NXP’s industry-leading silicon-germanium low-noise transistor, the BFU760F , enhancing the quality and reliability of the signals received.      

The BFU760F is a member of NXP’s family of bipolar SiGe and SiGe:C LNA devices, which claim to offer exceptional RF noise figure versus gain performance, while drawing low current. The performance allows for better signal reception at low power and enables RF receivers to operate more robustly in noisy environments. They also have the advantage of superior ESD robustness over competing GaAs LNA solutions.     

NorthVu incorporated NXP’s low-noise transistor technology into the NV20 Pro to increase its signal range to up to 35 miles and improve overall picture reception. Optimized to receive VHF, UHF and digital FM signals, consumers can receive a wide selection of digital broadcast TV channels on a device that is compact and discrete compared to competing products.
