MaxLinear Inc., the Carlsbad-based electronics manufacturer, said recently that Samsung will start using its hybrid silicon tuners in its televisions.

Production shipments have started to the South Korean company, MaxLinear said earlier this week.

The tuners consume little power and occupy a very small space: 4 by 4 millimeters.

Shares of MaxLinear trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol MXL.
