DM-154 Datasheet
The Videotek DM-154 demodulator is a high performance television tuner/demodulator which, in addition to being at home in basic broadcast, cable and closed circuit monitoring applications, can also be used for FCC compliance testing. It contains features beyond standard tuners, including forced mono mode, a Zero Carrier Pulse (chopper), 4.5 MHz aural carrier output, external IF loop and remote control via an RS-232 port. The DM-154 may be used in testing applications and in locations where computer control is required.
