Analog Devices Inc. (ADI) and Legend Silicon Corp. announced the opening of a joint design laboratory to develop reference designs for China's emerging mobile TV market.

According to the press release, the design lab located in Shanghai, will provide complete front-end solutions, from the antenna through the tuner to the demodulator to the MPEG2 TS interface, to allow OEMs and ODMs to quickly equip their mobile terminal productsincluding portable media players, PDAs, laptop PCs, automotive displays and smart phonesto receive terrestrial digital TV broadcasts.

The collaboration combines Legend's demodulator technology with ADI's low-power RF tuners. Legend's demodulators fully support the GB2006 terrestrial digital TV standard in China. The standard covers both fixed and mobile applications, and the demodulators have the capability to receive this terrestrial digital broadcast in mobile terminal products. The lab also will support complete system designs developed in collaboration with customers.

"The opening of this joint lab with Legend Silicon is an important next step to helping our customers in the region prepare for the rapid and substantial deployment of mobile TV services, which we believe are on the cusp of becoming a mass-market opportunity," said Howard Cheng, vice president for greater China operations, ADI.

"Legend Silicon's collaborative efforts with Analog Devices yielded the first silicon tuner receiver solution to meet China's mobile and fixed digital broadcast requirements," said Dr. Lin Yang, chairman and chief technology officer, Legend.
