Sunplus has released its latest DVB-T turnkey solution, which includes backend MPEG decode chip SPHE1002 and front-end DVB-T QAM demodulator chips SPDC210/230, for DVB-T STB or portable DTV solution.

Sunplus claims that its DVB-T turnkey solution is among the first dual-chip solutions to deliver digital terrestrial broadcasting reception and also to have multimedia add-on features such as MPEG1/2/4 video decode, MP3/AAC/PCM audio decode, USB and card reader functions, which are embedded in SPHE1002. The front-end DVB-T demodulator chips SPDC210/230 are said to be the most advanced chips to perform both DVB-T stationary and mobile terrestrial reception functions.

In addition to high performance MPEG1/2/4/DivX A/V decode in SPHE1002, the SPDC210/230 chips offer the world's lowest power consumption at 200mW, said Sunplus. The devices also feature quicker channel scan speed compared with existing competing devices. It also offers good echo performance in single frequency network and multiple frequency networks. For mobile applications, SPDC230 can run up to 130kph high-speed reception under 16QAM and 2/3 coding rate.

"The real value of Sunplus SPHE1002 and SPDC210/230 DVB-T turnkey solution lies in extending the powerful, rich features embedded [in applications] to provide consumers a low power, interoperable, customizable easy-to-use user interface, and enable digital entertainment experience across all range of devices and platforms," said Ho-Jung Ou, general manager, home entertainment business unit, Sunplus.

Besides having DVB-T turnkey solution for STB and portable DTV application, Sunplus also offers DVB-T built-in module for Europe TV or DVR system applications, which matches Sunplus' LCD-TV SPV7030 or DVR SPHE7300 solutions as an add-on module.
