DVB-H/T chip solutions from Infineon

Infineon Technologies has announced two highly integrated, power-efficient DVB-H/T chip solutionsthe OmniViaT TUS9090 and OmniTuneT TUA9000.

OmniViaT TUS9090 is a fully integrated SoC that includes the RF Tuner, DVB-H/T demodulator and integrated memory. OmniTuneT TUA9000 is a direct-conversion multiband silicon tuner (VHF, UHF and the L-Bands for Europe and North America) for the reception of both DVB-H and the DVB-T DTV transmission signals.

These products target mobile digital TV applications such as mobile phones, PDAs, mobile media players and laptops. Enabling miniaturization of electronics system design, the company said these new solutions will drive towards lower system costs, reduced power consumption and eventually an increased adoption rate of mobile TV technology and applications.

OmniViaT TUS9090 is for the multiband worldwide reception of DVB-H/T signals, integrating the RF silicon tuner, DVB-H/T demodulator as well as on-chip memory with support for multiple service reception. In time-slicing mode with 10 percent duty cycle, the chip operates at less than 50mW, making this device highly power efficient.

Manufactured using the Infineon's 130nm CMOS RF technology, the OmniViaT TUS9090 is available in an 8-by-8-by-0.8mm package. Optionally, it can also be provided as bare die (bumped flip chip) that enables handheld device manufacturers to integrate it directly into modules, thus achieving a profile of less than 1mm.

The OmniViaT TUS9090 is currently sampling with key customers. General samples will be available by the Q4 2007, with mass production scheduled for early 2008.
