The new chips DIB7090P (DVB-T) and DIB8096P (ISDB-T full-seg) to offer cost-effective solutions for portable and fixed TV applications

PARIS — DiBcom, leader in the market for components dedicated to digital fixed and mobile TV reception, unveils its 2 new tuner-demodulator System on Chip (SoC) for DVB-T and ISDB-T full-seg, offering digital TV high performance technology for portable or fixed reception. Set top boxes, TV sets or PCTV can be addressed by these components at a very low cost.

Analog switch-off is happening step by step in Europe, maintaining a constant high demand for DVB-T receivers. Also, South America and Russia have launched digital terrestrial TV in ISDB-T and DVB-T, extending this big demand to the next coming years.

These 2 DiBcom SoCs, pin-to-pin compatible, are designed to be at the heart of these booming world wide markets.

Packaged in QFN 64 pins, they got the benefit of long TV reception experience as DiBcom already deployed millions of integrated tuner-demodulator chips around the world during the last 4 years.

The DVB-T DIB7090P is not only Nordig 2.0 and DTG compliant, but is designed to achieve MBRAI (IEC62002) specifications for portable receivers.

In the same way, the ISDB-T full-seg (and 1-seg) DIB8096P outperforms ARIB and SBTVD specifications to offer outstanding performance.

The COFDM demodulation includes the patented algorithms that established DiBcoms reputation in signal processing for many years. Digital processing suppresses impulse noise, multipath, adjacent and co-channel interference, allowing the retrieval of any useful signal for an unrivalled reception quality.

Diversity or dual reception is easily obtained by daisy-chaining 2 chips.

“After having developed innovative applications to receive TV in mobile conditions, we are now proud to launch cost effective high performance solutions for the STB and Digital TV consumer electronics. It is a great time to develop this market, due to many new countries launching digital TV in Latin America, Eastern Europe and South East Asia” says Yannick Levy, DiBcom CEO.

The new DIB7090P and DIB8096P are available for sampling. Price for DIB7090P is $2 for 1 million units.
