ATI Technologies Inc. is introducing a single chip, DVB-H compliant, Mobile TV Receiver solution for mobile phones and other handheld devices. ATI's Imageon TV solutions are designed to offer handset manufacturers with system-level flexibility, high integration, low power and optimal BOM cost.
The WTV100-M is a single chip front-end that integrates a dual-band RF tuner (UHF for Europe and L-Band for US) with a highly integrated DVB-T/DVB-H OFDM demodulator and all necessary discretes in a SiP (System-in-Package). The WTV100-M component interfaces seamlessly to ATI's Imageon media processors, as the audio and video decoders, for a complete and state-of-the-art end-to-end DVB-H solution.
The WTV100 demodulator supports most worldwide operation modes, can handle simultaneous processing of multiple services, multiple DRM solutions and integrates in hardware a decoder for Multi-Protocol-Encapsulator Forward-Error-Correction (MPE-FEC) and its memory. It also offers flexible and versatile interfaces and allows ATI to work with the industry's best-in-class silicon RF tuners to provide an extremely compact, proven and reliable front-end component (WTV100-M).
ATI's Imageon TV is a system-on-chip (SoC) solution that is host, OS and DRM agnostic. It off-loads the host CPU for better operation and seamless integration in any environment. The result is a quick time-to-market development of Mobile TV enabled handsets. Imageon TV solutions come complete with a DVB-CBMS Phase 1 compliant software stack, which includes the User Interface (UI), Electronic Service Guide (ESG), middleware, APIs to most applicable DRM solutions, and a full SDK.
The WTV100-M will be shipping to customers in mid 2006 with samples and design kits available now.
