Newport Media has released a single-chip mobile TV receiver for DVB-H and high-mobility DVB-T market segments. Touting its new product as the world's lowest-power single-chip mobile TV receiver, the company said the NMI300 Sundance H increases viewing time while cutting handset size and cost, and sets key performance records in critical areas that drive digital mobile TV reception and picture quality.

The NMI300 solution can receive up to eight simultaneous channels while maintaining 3dB noise figure to extend coverage area with superior quality. The single-chip offering includes a quad-band, direct-conversion radio, a DVB-H demodulator, plus all necessary memory in a 7-by-7mm footprint. No other external memory, baluns or loop filters are required to create a complete solution, the company said, and the device is manufactured using low-cost, 0.13?m CMOS process technology.

The NMI300 solution promises superior performance in key areas including sensitivity, channel switching time and interference immunity. To ensure the highest-quality user viewing experience, Newport Media said it has included a number of features including 55dB of adjacent channel rejections along with 110Hz Doppler frequency performance in 8k mode.

Initially focusing on the industry's fastest-growing market segment, DVB-H, the company's Sundance series will also support other popular air interface standards including Terrestrial-Digital Multimedia Broadcasting (T-DMB), Integrated Services Digital Broadcasting-Terrestrial (ISDB-T) and MediaFLO.

The Sundance H system solution is available in sample quantities and is priced at $8 per unit in OEM quantities of 10,000. The solution will enter volume production Q1 2007. A comprehensive reference design is also available including all necessary control driver software, diagnostic test bench software, a digital video player interface, user's manual, test data and other documentation.
