Siano PR, 3/1/10
Israeli mobile TV chip maker Siano Mobile Silicon has announced the launch of the newest product in its CMMB TV receiver chip family - the SMS1184. The SMS1184 is targeted for the "Jingcai" brand of CMMB service provided by the China Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), China's national opperator of CMMB mobile TV, and is aimed at portable and handheld applications such as navigation devices, DVD players, MP4 players, notebooks and notebook accessories. The efficient and low cost design of the SMS1184 allows consumer electronic device makers dramatically lower the cost of adding CMMB to their feature lists.
In addition to mobile TV, the Siano chip also supports CBC's data services that are broadcasted over the CMMB network, such as its navigation and financial value-added services.
The SMS1184 supports CBC's conditional access system via secured on-chip implementation of Nagravision's device software communicating directly with Nagravision's secured CA chip.
The SMS1184 is available now in mass volumes. It has already been adopted by a number of Chinese and foreign device makers, who will ship their products later in 2010.
