Cidana, Siano team up on mobile TV USB stick for China market

Mobile TV software company Cidana and integrated mobile TV chipmaker Siano have joined forces to deliver a mobile TV USB stick for China’s CMMB digital TV standard. The device integrates Cidana's mobile TV platform and Siano's SMS 1180 CMMB receiver chip.

Cidana’s platform includes a player, conditional access management, codecs, full tuner control, network protocol stack, error resilience and concealment, esg/epg, datacasting, DRM/CA and time shifting/recording. The player can be bundled with laptop PCs or MIDs running Windows XP, Vista or Linux.

Siano's integrated SMS 1180 CMMB mobile TV receiver chip offers high performance and ultra-low power consumption in a small — 6.6mm x 6.9mm x 0.9mm — footprint. Receiving and displaying multiple TV channels in parallel, the SMS1180 includes two complete, distinct UHF and S-band paths, a baseband processor and common consumer-market interfaces, including USB, SDIO, SPI, memory mapped, transport stream and I2C.
