Netanya, Israel - Feb 26, 2014 - Siano, a manufacturer of mobile broadcast DTV components, has launched the SMS2160, a new multi-standard digital radio receiver chip designed for automotive and portable/mobile consumer electronics applications. The SMS2160 will support T-DMB/DAB/DAB+, DRM+ and FM radio, including RDS/TMC. The newly released chip is particularly aimed at the emerging markets of DAB+ in Europe, and DRM+ in Asia and around the globe.
According to Siano, the SMS2160 is the first IC that supports dual antenna diversity (MRC) for DRM+, T-DMB/DAB/DAB+. It is highly integrated, with a small footprint (5x5 mm) and multiple frequency-band support: VHF Band III (174-240MHz), VHF Band I (47-88MHz), VHF Band II (88-108MHz), and L1-Band.

Making Siano's SMS2160 receiver chip available to the national effort open to public and commercial broadcasters will open new horizons for quality mobile broadcasts all over India."
