Samsung Electro-Mechanics Co. Ltd. has deployed Microtune Inc.'s “MicroTuner MT2111” analog/digital single-chip tuner in four different Samsung tuner modules targeted for the European, Korean, Japanese and U.S. set-top markets.

Some of Samsung’s modules also contain Microtune's “MicroStreamer” upstream amplifier.
