Mirics Semiconductor will develop mobile TV and radio solutions for smartphone applications by migrating its FlexiTV platform to the ARM Cortex-A8 and Cortex-A9 applications processors. The new solution from Mirics will enable low cost, region independent mobile TV and radio reception on media-rich phones. The initial smartphone-based solutions will address the Korean and Japanese mobile TV standards – T-DMB and ISDB-T OneSeg, respectively. Mirics expects to sample FlexiTV solutions based upon the Cortex applications processors to lead customers in the 4th quarter of 2009 with production being ready for early 2010.
