An IC signal-processing circuit that can be applied in both black-and-white and color receivers is described. The integrated circuit combines the following functions: video preamplifier; keyed AGC detector, operating on top sync level; AGC amplifier for IF and tuner control; noise canceling circuits for AGC and sync circuits; sync separator; automatic horizontal sync; and vertical sync pulse separator. Due to the noise-canceling circuit a stable synchronization is obtained when impulse noise is received. Since the values of the capacitors in the AGC circuit can be rather low without difficulties with instabilities, the performance during fast input signal fluctuations (airplane flutter) is very good.
