Samsung Announces Advanced Multi-standard, Multi-band Mobile TV Chipset
Samsung announced the industry’s first 65 nanometer (nm) multi-standard channel decoder (S3C4F31) and multi-band radio frequency (RF) tuner (S5M8602) chipset which supports multi digital mobile TV standards including DVB-H/T, DAB-IP, ISDB-T, and terrestrial DMB for the multiple standards in the different countries around the world. Samsung’s new multi-standard, multi-band mobile TV chipset integrates a broad range of segment standards. As countries worldwide introduce their mobile TV service standards, this chipset allows end users to choose which broadcasting services they want to use without changing their mobile application.
This new chipset is offered either as two standalone ICs or as a system-in-chip package which places together the RF tuner and the channel chip on a single module package. Samsung’s new multi-standard channel decoder (S3C4F31) and multi-band RF tuner (S5M8602) chipset is now sampling with mass production slated for the fourth quarter of 2007.
