Columbia, MD - May 9, 2007 - Samsung Electro Mechanics plans to introduce a new chipset for use in portable and home HD Radio receivers. Samsung, already an Ibiquity Digital IC development partner, expects samples of the chipset will be available before the end of the 2007 with production anticipated for the first quarter of 2008.
Designed to be a low-power, high-performance chip, it will be capable of supporting all current and planned HD Radio technology features. It is being designed and manufactured using advanced technology and features a system-in-package (SIP) module and a CMOS, mixed-signal single-chip tuner. Target HD Radio applications include mobile phones, portable media players, portable navigation devices, table radios and home audio-video components.
