SHENZHEN, China — Siano, the world’s leading provider of mobile broadcast DTV solutions, announced today the launch of SMS4430, a new multi-standard digital TV receiver chip designed for mobile/portable consumer electronics applications. The SMS4430 presents a lower-cost, smaller-size, lower power-consumption version of Siano’s SMS4470, of which the company has already shipped millions of units.

The DVB-T2 digital TV broadcast standard extends its deployment these days in South-East Asia, Eastern and Western Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and more.

ISDB-T is deployed in Japan, South America, the Philippines, and a few more countries.

The SMS4430 is fully compliant with ETSI EN 302 755 ver. 1.3.1 (DVB-T2), including full support for DVB-T2-Lite; ETSI EN 300 744 V1.6.1 (DVB-T); NorDig unified spec ver. 2.4; and ARIB-STD-B31 (ISDB-T).

It supports channel bandwidths of 1.7, 6, 7 and 8 MHz, over different spectrum bands: VHF-III (174-240MHz), VHF-I (47-88MHz), VHF-II (88-108MHz), UHF (400-806MHz) and L1 (1.5GHz).

The SMS4430 is highly integrated (includes the RF tuner and related filters – on chip), and offered in a 7 x 7mm BGA package. In order to provide extended DTV reception capabilities for today’s spreading LTE environments, the chip includes a proprietary, innovative on-chip NoiseBuster(TM) engine. The chip consumes only 220mW of power when demodulating a high data rate DVB-T2 channel.

Samples of the SMS4430 are available to selected customers.
