Saa7162 devices are collectively those PCIe devices that are based upon either a [[NXP SAA716x|SAA7160, SAA7161 or SAA7162]] chip, and which will be supported under Linux by the [[NXP SAA716x#Driver Development|SAA716x kernel driver module]].
  
In March 2005, Philips Semiconductors announced "the industry's first integrated PCI Express dual global video and stereo decoder for digital home PC desktops and notebooks" ([http://www.electronicstalk.com/news/phi/phi309.html press release]). The new analog decoder chip, the saa7162, uses the increased bandwidth of the PCI Express bus to capture to two simultaneous analog channels of live tv or baseband video (cf. [http://www-us.semiconductors.philips.com/acrobat/literature/9397/75015389.pdf product flyer]) or up to four independent simultaneous digital TV streams (cf. [http://www.nxp.com/acrobat_download/literature/9397/75015302.pdf Philips/NXP SAA7162 data sheet]).
 
  
As at Oct 2006, NXP just put a page up with the specifications, including an 18 page data sheet:
