The SAB6456 description
The SAB6456 is a prescaler for UHF/VHF tuners. The circuit has an input
frequency range of 70 MHz to 1 GHz, has high input sensitivity and good
harmonic suppression. With lower sensitivity it's usable down to 3 MHz.
The circuit comprises an input amplifier, a divider stage and an output stage.
The divider stage may oscillate during no-signal conditions but this oscillation is suppressed when input signals are
received. The voltage-edges of the output signals are slowed internally to reduce harmonics in the television
intermediate frequency band.
Printed circuit board
There are two pin connection versions of the SAB6456. In the schematic diagram there is drawn a standard pin
connection as provided by Philips datasheet. The PCB is proposed for both versions.
PCB - standard pin connection of SAB6456
PCB - different pin connection of SAB6456
The display is placed vertically on the PCB.
