Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd introduces the S5H1411 chip that can enable DTVs to receive both vestigial sideband (VSB) broadcasts and QAM cable signals. With the new chip, the company claims to be the first in the world to adopt 65nm process technology to broadcast TV receiver chip circuitry.

According to Samsung, the chip offers 30 percent higher reception success rate than its previous generation S5H1409 receiver chip. The new chip offers a higher reception success rate than other devices in multipath environments where signal interference is high. Moreover, the S5H1411 operates on 20 percent less power than competing devices on the market today, making it well suited for portable products such as the USB dongle or USB box. Samsung said that the footprint on the PCB can be reduced by as much as 40 percent.

In addition to DTVs, the device can be used in digital broadcast STBs with terrestrial and cable reception, TV reception cards for PCs, USB bongles and USB boxes. S5H1411 is available in the 100-pin TQFP (14-by-14mm) or 100-ball FBGA (8-by-8mm) packages.
