Sony to sell tiny digital TV tuner chip for mobile devices

October 6, 2003

Sony will ship in December samples of a mini digital broadcast tuner module that will enable portable electronic devices in Japan to act as television receivers. Smaller than a postage stamp, the tuner can be used in a range of mobile applications, including cell phones and personal digital assistants (PDAs).

Sony said the tuner module is the smallest ever built and has extremely low-power consumption, solving the bulk and battery life issues that have plagued mobile TV receiving devices in recent years.
