A new active RF splitter delivers low noise and distortion in the smallest footprint for simultaneous TV viewing, recording, Internet access and picture-in-picture.

Analog Devices has developed an active RF splitter IC that uses innovative four-way signal-splitting technology to resolve design challenges in multituner cable set-top boxes (STBs) and advanced televisions that need to simultaneously deliver video or data content to multiple applications, enabling features such as picture-in-picture capability and personal video recording By dividing an input into four outputs without degrading the signal quality, the device enables the lowest noise and distortion, while reducing design work and overall system cost

The lower noise and distortion levels allow systems to be sensitive to smaller signals, resulting in fewer signal interruptions and clearer pictures.

Unlike some existing solutions that re
