Sony Develops Stamp-Sized Tuners for PDA's
Posted: 01-Nov-2002 [Source: AsiaBizTech]

[Sony develops chip for receiving tv broadcast signals specifically for PCs and PDAs.]

Tokyo -- "Portable PCs and personal digital assistants (PDAs) have smaller screens than TV sets, so if those small devices maintain a high standard of picture quality, power consumption can be saved, said an official from Sony Corp., which developed postage stamp-sized TV tuner modules.

Sony's new tuner modules, the "BTF-ZJ401" and "BTF-ZJ411," are designed to receive conventional Japanese terrestrial TV broadcast signals. The BTF-ZJ40 measures 25.0mm x 20.0mm x 3.0mm -- about the same as a standard 80-yen postage stamp. The BTF-ZJ411, which also is capable of handling stereo and multi-channel audio broadcasts, is slightly larger -- measuring 40.0mm x 22.5mm x 2.8mm. Sample shipments are set to begin in February 2003. The main application for the tuners will be in portable devices like PCs and PDAs, some of which lately are mounted with functions to enjoy TV images."
