Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd has started sampling a multistandard channel decoder and multiband RF tuner chipset made using its 65nm process. The Korean electronics giant said the new product supports almost all mobile TV standards, including DVB-H/T, DAB-IP, ISDB-T and terrestrial DMB.

Volume production of the part is scheduled for Q4 2007.

The chipset is being offered either as two standalone ICs or as a system-in-chip package.

"Although a new market, we see high growth potential in mobile TV applications," said Yiwan Wong, marketing team VP at Samsung's System LSI Division. The part will initially be targeted at the European and Asian markets, he added.

Samsung says the multiband RF tuner, which receives the analog broadcast signal, has a simplified circuit structure by applying a low IF to complement the conventional zero IF. It is also a general-purpose tuner that supports UHF, VHF and L-band commonly used in Europe and the U.S.

The company says the chipset requires no external LNA and additional memory chips, significantly reducing the BOM cost of the total system. The chipset supports link layer processing to output fully error-corrected IP datagrams or MPEG2 transport streams.
