Samsung develops 65nm DVB-T receiver chip
Samsung today announced the development of a digital TV receiver chip in 65nm process technology. The new chip, called S5H1432, enables the reception of digital television programs with terrestrial antennas ( DVB-T ).
According to Samsung, the chip is primarily designed for use in digital TVs, set-top boxes, TV receiver cards for PCs, plug - & - play dongles or boxes with USB interfaces and DVD recorders . Europe as well as Southeast Asia and Australia are to be covered. The new S5H1432 is manufactured using Samsung's advanced 65nm process technology on 300mm wafers. In addition to the signal strength, it should also set itself apart from the competition in terms of consumption: Compared to conventional solutions that are currently on the market and consume an average of 250mW, the S5H1432 only needs 80mW and thus significantly less power.
