New Qualcomm chip supports 3 mobile TV standards
They have announced that they have developed the world’s first chip which supports multiple mobile TV standards.The new chip is known as the Universal Broadcast Modem, or UBM, but it isn’t quite universal, since it just supports three formats. It obviously will support FLO, or forward link only, since Qualcomm was instrumental in its’ development. It will also work with DVB-H and ISDB-T. Those format choices clearly signal Qualcomm’s intent to make a statement in Japan. The UBM will work with CDMA2000 and WCDMA 3G technology.
