DiBcom low-power mobile TV receivers give handset manufacturers a way to make their products stand out
DiBcom’s new DIB9090 and DIB8090 belong to a new generation of components aiming for high performance with the lowest possible power consumption in all functional modes — especially for DVB-T and Full-SEG ISDB-T — to provide cost-effective solutions for DVB-T, DVB-H, Full-SEG and 1SEG ISDB-T mobile TV reception on battery-powered devices.
The DIB9090 and DIB8090 both support very low-power mobile TV reception of DVB-T and ISDB-T 13SEG signals, respectively, as well as DVB-H and ISDB-T 1SEG.
Mobile phones using DiBcom chipsets have offered DVB-T reception in several European countries for the last four months. In Japan, where 1SEG ISDB-T has been deployed on mobile phones, more than 30 million units have already been sold, and handset manufacturers are also looking at implementing reception of Full-SEG ISDB-T, enabling HDTV on large-screen mobile phones.
