Chip Hunting


Ajit Narayanan

Hi everyone,
I'm a rookie engineer, and I want to know what's the best way of
finding ICs that have the same (or similar) functionality as a known
IC. For example, I'm looking for a 256-QAM demodulator receiver, and I
know that Broadcom makes a chip (BCM3116) that does what I want; is
there an easy way of finding chips by other manufacturers that do the
same thing?
