Microtune releases mobile MicroTuner for TV on handheld devices
Microtune, Inc. is introducing a family of high-performance, ultra low-power, multi-band tuners targeted for mobile handhelds, including cell phones, PDAs and other multimedia convergence devices. When integrated into portable handheld devices, the MT2260 tuner the permits users to watch multi-channel broadcast TV with full-motion digital pictures and CD-quality sound.

Currently sampling with major handset manufacturers, the new MT2260 is the first single-chip tuner that enables handheld devices to operate across the networks allocated for mobile broadcast TV services in both Europe and in the U.S.

The MT2260 tuner is also fully compliant with the Digital Video Broadcast-Handheld (DVB-H) standard, an industry specification that enables the simultaneous transmission of multiple television, radio and video channels to mobile handheld devices.

Measuring only 6 x 6-square millimeters, the MT2260 is offered in a 40-pin QFN package, supporting reduced footprint designs of mobile phone and handheld device manufacturers. The MT2260 operates from a 2.7V power supply and consumes as little as 20 milliWatts in 'viewing' mode, depending on the severity of the reception environment. It features 9-milliWatt power-down and 250-microWatt sleep modes to further conserve battery power. This low-power consumption enables mobile phone manufacturers to give viewers up to 10 hours of TV viewing time on 2-inch or 4-inch displays using 800mAh or 1300mAh batteries, respectively, for their DVB-H handsets.

The MT2260 will be priced at US$5.00/unit in quantities of 10,000.
