SAMSUNG Electronics Develops Satellite DMB Chip for Mobile Phones

SAMSUNG Electronics has completed development of the world's first satellite digital multimedia broadcasting (DMB) chip for mobile phones. The satellite DMB chip for mobile phones requires ultra-high integration, and SAMSUNG Electronics has paved the way for localization of satellite DMB components. Satellite DMB is in the spotlight as the next generation in broadcasting formats. The service will be accessible anywhere to users on the move via either receivers in automobiles or handheld terminals.



SAMSUNG has applied system-on-a-chip (SOC) technologies to enable the satellite DMB chip to select the signals intended for individual users from a myriad of signals transmitted from the satellite and convert them into high quality video images. The device also bills the payment for the service and identifies the user. SAMSUNG has also designed the device to be extremely energy efficient.



A SAMSUNG spokesperson says, “We have completed development of the world's first satellite DMB chip for mobile phones. This achievement has paved the way for us to take the lead in core technology for various handheld products. We expect our work to accelerate the commercialization of satellite DMB services.”



SAMSUNG Electronics aims to launch a mobile phone with its new chip on board in time for the opening of satellite DMB service.
