Extreme Tech Comment The card itself features a Philips HDTV tuner box but ATI’s NXT2004 receiver chip does much of the heavy lifting. The NXT2004 VSB (vestigial sideband modulation)/QAM (quadrature amplitude modulation) Receiver is designed for off-air and cable digital television receivers, set-top boxes, PCDTV, and datacast applications where cost, low power and industry-leading performance are a must. The NXT2004 Multimode VSB/QAM demodulator can work in either the ATSC compliant 8 VSB mode for terrestrial broadcasting, or DICSIS-compliant 64 QAM or 256 QAM modes for Digital TV-Cable Connect and Digital TV Cable Interactive reception. However, in the HDTV Wonder product, the NXT2004 is set up only as a 70-channel off-the-air HDTV receiver
BASIC Stamp 5V Regulator Regulates voltage to 5V with a supply of 5.5VDC to 15VDC Resonator Sets the speed at which instructions are processed. EEPROM Stores the tokenized PBASIC program. Interpreter Chip Reads the BASIC program from the EEPROM and executes the instructions. Serial Signal Conditioning Conditions voltage signals between PC serial connection (+/- 12V) and BASIC Stamp (5V) for Programming.
BASIC Stamp Pin 1: S OUT Transmits serial data during programming and using the DEBUG instruction Pin 2: S IN Receives serial data during programming Pin 3: ATN Uses the serial DTR line to gain the Stamps attention for programming.
