    The trend towa-rds miniaturization of the video circuits in the television receivers suffers due to the presence of a large number of passive filters. Further miniaturization leading to a possible video LSI can be thought of only when these filters are made active. The frequency range of operation of these filters excludes the use of operational amrlifiers as active elements for their realization.... View full abstract»

    Digital synthesizer tuners that have electronized the tuning section of radio receivers are steadily penetrating the market, backed by advancements in LSI technology. Systems employed by digital synthesizer tuners on the market today may roughly be classified into two categories, PLL (phase locked loop) frequency synthesizers and DAC (digital to analog converter) voltage synthesizers.

    An international AM/FM radio synthesizer has been designed in a high yield standard bipolar process utilizing ECL/I2L circuitry. A novel ECL/12L interface scheme and stacked I2L is used to achieve a power dissipation of 150 milliwatts which results in generous power supply tolerances and a wide temperature range (-40 to +90°C). The synthesizer is flexibly partitioned for control by a microcontrol... View full abstract»

    An audio system in an automobile suffers from its ambient noise. If a driver, in a car on express way or gravel road, is listening to a car radio or a car stereo, the sound of them will probably be masked by the vehicle-noise. Therefore, it is frequently required to adjust the loudness of sound. It is, however, dangerous for the driver to adjust the loudness during the car in motion. Moreover, whe... View full abstract»

    In the past single chip frequency synthesizer tuning systems have been developed which are suitable for simple radio sets, but bring problems if designed into more sophisticated radios. Separation of the control and display functions from the tuning function allow the PLL circuit to be situated near the tuners and the control and display function near the front of the receiver. This minimises inte... View full abstract»

    This paper describes a monolithic integrated circuit1 which can be used with a standard Quad Op Amp to form a complete AM Stereo Decoder. The intention of the paper is to show the advantages and trade-offs involved with applying nonsynchronous technology to the unique problems encountered in AM Stereo. The integrated AM Stereo decoder' can decode four of the five systems presently under considerat... View full abstract»

    A remote controlled frequency synthesis tuning system for color TV application, controlled by a new dedicated single chip spl mu/-computer from the 8048 family is described. Because it is highly modular, the system can be used in a broad range of TV receivers, beginning at the basic portable and ending at the "Top of the Range" model. The modularity of this microcomputer controlled system is due n... View full abstract»

    Monochrome TV receivers, like portable AM radios, have remained impenetrable to the skills of the linear IC designer - mainly because of very stringent cost requirements and relatively low demands on performance. There is, however, a market demand for a more sophisticated breed of receiver for portable use which is relatively complex when built with discrete components. View full abstract»
