Fabless IC company DiBcom and antenna-maker SkyCross will provide an integrated solution that provides device manufacturers with an alternative to the current designs that employ a separate external antenna.
The solutions will be compliant with the current worldwide Digital Video Broadcast standards, DVB-T and DVB-H. They also optimize reception quality based on the expertise and system design knowledge of both companies.
While some products that combine technologies from DiBcom and SkyCross already exist on the market, such as the SGH-P930 handset for DVB-H from Samsung, the two companies plan to offer their expertise for mobile TV integration and system optimization.
This solution can be applied to mobile handsets, portable multimedia players (PMPs), portable TV decoders (set-top boxes, integrated LCD TV), PC cards, notebook computers, and ultra-mobile personal computers (UMPCs), which are small tablet PCs for data on the go.
The bundled solution from DiBcom and SkyCross accommodates the position of other components in these various devices. The offering provides high-performance, low-power consumption, and the ability to integrate advanced features.
