Samsung Announces Multi-band Mobile TV Chipset

Samsung Electronics has begun sampling the industry's first 65 nanometer (nm) multi-standard channel decoder (S3C4F31) and multi-band radio frequency (RF) tuner (S5M8602) chipset supporting multi digital mobile TV standards, including DVB-H/T, DAB-IP, ISDB-T, and terrestrial DMB.



Samsung's multi-standard channel decoder, which transforms the analog signal into digital signal in order to restore the image and audio source, is fully compliant to DVB-H/T, T-DMB, DAB, DAB-IP, and ISDB-T segment standards.



The multi-band RF tuner, which receives the analog broadcast signal, has a simplified circuit structure by applying a low IF to compliment the conventional zero IF. It is also a general purpose tuner that supports UHF, VHF and L-band commonly used in Europe and the United States. The wide use of the RF tuner compliments the advanced performance of the multi-standard channel decoder.



This new chipset is offered either as two standalone ICs or as a system-in-chip package (SiP) which places together the RF tuner and the channel chip on a single module package.



"Although a new market, we see high growth potential in mobile TV applications," said Yiwan Wong, vice president, System LSI Division, Semiconductor Business, Samsung Electronics. "With initial product launch targets for the Europe and Asia markets, we are introducing our high performance mobile TV chipset technology with added feature support to serve the needs of the entire mobile TV industry."http://www.samsung.com
