Thursday, May 10, 2007 at 9:49 AM

HD RadioSamsung said they will introduce a new low-power, low-cost chipset for HD Radio receivers. These new chipsets will be an important step in the development of portable HD Radios.

Samsung figures that samples of the chipset will be available before the end of the 2007 - and production anticipated for the first quarter of 2008.

The low-power, high-performance chip 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. 

If HD Radio is able to integrate into mobile phones and portable media players before satellite radio does, then we have no one to blame but ourselves.
