Newport Media Inc. has begun sampling a mobile TV receiver IC that integrates RF tuner, demodulator and all the required memory. The company claimed its NMI310 "Sundance H" mobile digital TV receiver, is said to be the industry's most highly integrated mobile TV chip.

The chip demodulates DVB-H, DVB-T, T-DMB, ISDB-T and MediaFlo, among other standards.

The NMI310 combines a quad-band, direct-conversion radio, a DVB-H demodulator and all necessary memory. The device receives up to eight channels simultaneously and achieved a power consumption of 20mW. Several features optimise the user viewing experience, including 55dB of adjacent channel rejection.

The Sundance H NMI310 chip is available in sample quantities and is priced at Rs.326.49 ($8) each in OEM quantities of 10,000 units. The device is manufactured using 0.13µm CMOS process technology and packaged in conventional FBGA as well as chip-scale packaging. Volume production is scheduled to commence in the third calendar quarter of 2007.

"We have been developing digital mobile TV system and semiconductor technology since the company's inception and have now introduced the industry's most highly integrated and commercially mature DVB-H/DVB-T solution," said Mohy Abdelgany, president and CEO of Newport Media. "Single-chip integration has been the last major obstacle in our DVB-H development, and reaching this significant milestone allows us to provide our customers with a superior performing solution combined with a structural cost advantage."
