Samsung uses Skyworks Components in Europe’s first mobile TV slider phone

Samsung is using Skyworks Components’ ultra-compact and highly efficient front-end modules (FEMs) and power amplifiers (PAs) for WCDMA and HSDPA across more than 10 universal mobile telecommunications system (UMTS) handsets —including Samsung's first European mobile TV slider phone, the Samsung P960.

A slim 16.7mm, the P960 supports both European mobile TV technology standards: digital video broadcast handheld (DVB-H) and the new open mobile alliance mobile broadcast service enabler suite (OMA BCAST). The handset features a 2.6in QVGA TFT screen and Bang & Olufsen ICEPower audio technology. The device also offers a 3-megapixel camera, music player and FM radio.

The SKY77519 FEM incorporated by Samsung is the industry’s smallest solution for open-polar EDGE architectures, potentially increasing talk time by 10 percent, reducing power requirements by 30 percent and expanding battery capacity by 10 percent. As a result, the P960 promises battery life of up to five hours of TV watching time.

In addition, the SKY77170 PA packs full 1920MHz-1980MHz bandwidth coverage into a single compact package. The module integrates the directional coupler, eliminating the need for any external coupler. The single gallium arsenide (GaAs) monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) contains all active circuitry in the module.
