Geneva, SwitzerlandAbilis Systems has started to ship what it says is the first device to integrate a multi-band RF tuner, advanced demodulator, memory and USB 2.0 interface on a 90-nm CMOS single die.
Designated the AS-102, this single-die DVB-T mobile digital TV receiver exceeds the MBRAI and Nordig2 specifications. It consumes power of less than 350mW, providing quality mobile reception with long viewing times for battery operated portable applications. The AS-102 does not require active RF components and enables the rapid design of extremely small and low cost mobile digital TV products for PCs, personal navigation devices (PNDs), personal multimedia players (PMPs) and set-top boxes.
The AS-102 is based on Abilis Systems' proprietary low power Software-Defined-Radio (LP-SDR(TM)) technology that provides receive performance under harsh conditions through its patented use of adaptive receive algorithms. LP-SDR technology supports new and emerging TV standards such as ISDB-T, T-DMB, DAB, MediaFLO or the Chinese CMMB and DMB-TH.
