TAIPEI -- Siano Mobile Silicon, a fabless semiconductor product company developing mobile digital television (MDTV) receiver solutions, announced today that it will make the Asian debut of the world's only multi-band, multi-standard receiver chipset for mobile digital television (MDTV) in Siano's suite (Grand Hyatt Hotel, Room # 1120) at Computex 2006, taking place June 6-10 in Taipei.

The SMS1000 is the industry's first low-cost, ultra-low-power, quad-band multi-standard receiver. A combination of RF tuner and demodulator, the SMS1000 constitutes a complete solution for integrating digital TV function into handheld and portable devices such as mobile phones, PDAs, lap-top computers and portable media players. The highlight of Siano's exhibit showcases the SMS1000 chipset, already design-in by a number of Taiwanese makers, and supported by multiple software vendors, of which many have a local presence in the Taiwan region.

The SMS1000, now in mass production stage, supports DVB-H, DVB-T, DAB, Enhanced Packet Mode DAB (IP-DAB) and T-DMB mobile digital standards, in various spectrum ranges. With enhanced mobility performance and minimum overhead on the host CPU, the SMS1000 is the best option for designing multiple products for different applications supporting MDTV. It has been designed into a number of handheld devices that will be launched to market soon.

Visitors to Computex will see Siano's SMS1000 demonstrated at Grand Hyatt Hotel, Room # 1120, with the following partners:

Inventec Appliances Corporation (IAC), a Taiwanese handheld device maker is developing multiple products using Siano's SMS1000 MDTV receiver. "IAC views MDTV as a strategic technology and market, and we aim at integrating it into many of our future products, addressing different regions and different MDTV standards," said Michael Chen, senior vice president of IAC. "After careful analysis of the MDTV IC supplier landscape, we have selected Siano as our strategic partner, due to their superior product offering, and the great synergy between the companies."
