Microtune Inc (NASDAQ:TUNE), a provider of silicon radio frequency (RF) technology to the automotive industry, has announced that its new antenna amplifier, the MT1119, is now automotive-qualified and ready for production.

The company said its latest 4x4mm amplifier chip has been designed for single-antenna configurations or multiple-antenna diversity systems with new-car model in-glass, roof and bumper antennas in mind. It allows superior multi-standard car radio reception with an extended frequency range which covers all AM bands, FM, HD-Radio, DRM and weather-band reception, supporting automotive radio systems around the world.

The amplifier chip has improved sensitivity under demanding signal conditions and temperature compensation to support extended ambient temperatures ranging from -40 degrees to 115 degrees Celsius along with a fully integrated RF level detector and PIN-diode driver for easy implementation of the AGC function for FM.

The MT1119 has been developed to meet the performance, qualification and manufacturing requirements of car makers and Tier-1 suppliers, whilst complying with the requirements of the Automotive Electronics Council (AEC) Q100, the automotive industry's quality standards for integrated-circuit electronics.
