MediaPhy today introduced the J-Solo, designed specifically to address the rapidly growing Japanese mobile TV market. The all CMOS single-die JSolo covers ISDB-T 1-3-13 segments, enabling seamless mobile TV throughout Japan. Among the most advanced features of the J-Solo device is Smart-Seg. This feature allows seamless switching between 1-seg, 3-seg and 13-seg modes, enabling best quality reception at all times in all locations. All features of Smart-Seg are user-configurable to manual or automatic modes. Featuring a proprietary architecture that enables ultra-low power consumption, ISDB-T 1-seg operates at 80 mW of power, while ISDB-T 13-seg requires only 120 mW. It is ideal for implementation in cell phones, laptops, PDAs, PMPs, as well as automotive systems throughout the Japanese market.

The chip will sample to customers this month and is expected to go into volume production in the first quarter of 2008. Based in the heart of Silicon Valley, California, MediaPhy Corporation is a fables semiconductor company developing solutions for next generation mobile audio and video entertainment applications.
