Intel® CE 5037
DVB-S PayTV* Tuner
Overview Technical Documents

Intel® CE 5037 The Intel® CE 5037 DVB-S2 and DVB-S PayTV* satellite tuner is a fully integrated L band zero intermediate frequency (ZIF) tuner that meets the performance requirements of the European Broadcast Union ETS 300-421 and ETS 301-790 (8PSK mode). The Intel CE 5037 PayTV satellite tuner features a programmable RF loop-through, independent RF and IF automatic gain control (AGC), and fully integrated "power and forget" voltage controlled oscillators (VCOs) and baseband filters that require no calibration, alignment or temperature/aging compensation.

The baseband channel filters have continuously programmable bandwidth for 1 to 45 Msps operation. The Intel CE 5037 PayTV satellite tuner is optimized for high-intermodulation performance at low power consumption and includes software/hardware power-down modes for Energy Star* requirements.
Product information
Satellite receiver application
Intel supports the Intel® CE 5037 PayTV satellite tuner with a reference design for the DVB-S PayTV market segment. This reference design uses the Intel® CE 6313 QPSK DSS/DVB-S Demodulator and enables you to quickly evaluate and implement the DSS/ DVB-S standard for your application.

The solution includes complete documentation and test results, with software supported directly by Intel. It offers excellent signal-handling performance at very low power consumption and is optimized for the specific field requirements of the PayTV market segment.
