SAMSUNG Electronics Develops Digital TV Channel Device on One Chip

SEOUL, Korea - July 9, 2000 - Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. has greatly enhanced the competitiveness of its digital TVs by merging core technology for receiving digital broadcasts on a single chip.

In May of 1998, the company began developing the second-generation channel chip, which receives digital broadcast signals from the TV station and enables viewers to see the broadcast on their TV.

The channel chip, specially processed to eliminate external interference, is essential for receiving digital signals from the tuner and then restoring them as high-quality sound and high-definition images.

The second-generation channel chip developed by Samsung Electronics performs the most important function in a digital TV: receiving the signal coming from the tuner and processing it to the same quality as it was when it left the broadcasting station.

Samsung`s channel chip is a single device consisting of what previously could only be made in two separate chipsets.Moreover, an analog-to-digital converter is built in, greatly improving performance.

In addition to receiving and restoring digital signals, Samsung`s new device eliminates dynamic multi-path impairment, which has the greatest influence on a digital TV`s reception performance.

Since digital TV and analog TV are now used side by side, analog signals can easily interfere with digital ones.

The key advantage of Samsung`s new channel chip is that it eliminates analog signal interference and corrects any errors in the digital signal that occur during transmission.
The channel chip can be used with all digital TV products, including actual digital TV sets, digital set-top boxes and digital cards for PCs.

It has a minimalnumber of parts, maximizing productivity and greatly reducing price.

The new Samsung chip is expected to sell at over US$30-40 a piece.
