Microtune®, Inc. (NASDAQ: TUNE) announced that Delphi, one of the world’s largest OEM automotive electronics systems suppliers, is deploying Microtune’s new MT2067 tuner in the TV receiver system of its factory-installed front and rear seat entertainment systems targeted for Europe and Japan.

“We are pleased to be working with Delphi as it advances the in-vehicle market for premier digital TV entertainment,” said James A. Fontaine, Microtune President and CEO. “We have enjoyed a long-term relationship with the company as an RF component supplier. Delphi adopted our new automotive TV tuner based not only on our past successful collaboration, but also because of our recognized position as the industry leader in TV tuner-chip electronics.”

Last December Microtune introduced the MicroTuner[tm] MT2067, a first-of-its-kind analog/digital tuner chip developed specifically for in-car digital TV. Based on the Company’s patented radio frequency (RF) silicon technology, the MT2067 is a world-standard, automotive-grade tuner engineered to provide superior, stable broadcast reception in fast-moving vehicles.
