Sony debuted today an interesting module for mobile devices, a digital TV tuner known as SMT-EW100. Showcased in India during a show this week, the product is meant to reach the partners in May, for a yet unspecified price.
We’re dealing here with the world’s smallest size module with superior reception and ultra low power usage. This one is Sony’s very first module specialized for mobile usage and it comes with a variety of terrestrial TV broadcast systems supported, like DVB-T and DVB-T2 for ASEAN, Middle East, Europe and Africa as well as DVB-T2 Lite and ISDB-T for South America.
It measures 6.9 mm x 6.9 mm x 1 mm and offers a low power usage of just under 200 mW. It also offers a packaged solution, with a module, antenna, software and technical support included. Finally, they’re all offered with the Android driver package and the module is very easy to incorporate into tablets, phones, infotainment car systems and more.
