Microtune Inc. said Thursday that it has shipped single-chip tuner No. 5 million.

The vendor began selling its tuners for cable modems, digital interactive set-top boxes and other TV appliances four years ago.

“Silicon tuners are still a very young technology, and shipping our 5 millionth single-chip tuner marks a significant milestone for Microtune,” CEO James A. Fontaine said in a prepared statement.

“The industry transition to silicon tuners, we believe, is accelerating as our customers realize the benefits of a miniature RF footprint in their innovative products,” he added. “We share this achievement with them and our dedicated employees.”
