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 product brief]).

'''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 Oct 2006, NXP created a saa7162 product page that includes, amongst other information, an 18 page "preliminary short data sheet" for download:

There are currently no supported cards. (Check here for current status of [[NXP SAA716x#Driver Development|driver development]]).
  
The PCI-SIG lists SAA7162 (dual A/V decoder) and SAA7160/SAA7161 (multimedia A/V bridge) as PCIe devices.

According to [http://www.nxp.com/applications/pc_pda/pc_tv/dual_analog_pc_tv_receiver/index.html Philips' reference design], Philips themselves have produced a Linux driver. In May 2007, after months of persistence, Richard Dale finally succeeded in obtaining the v1.0 driver set. The good news is that the code is under the GPL license; the bad news is that it's not yet in decent shape. Check up on [http://www.interlink.com.au/rad/quattros Richard's site] for updates.
