To think that it about time that Digital TV becomes available from the comfort of your smartphone or tablet, is an appropriate thing. At CES 2015, Sony launched a Digital TV Tuner Module that can be incorporated with smartphone, automotive infotainment systems, navigation systems, PCs, tablets and many other mobile devices. The good news is that Sony India is introducing this DTV Tuner module at Convergence India Trade show at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi from 21st to 23rd January. Going by the model number SMT-EW100, the Sony digital TV tuner is said to be the world's smallest and yet it has a high quality reception feature. The company claims that power consumption of the module is pretty low and therefore integrating it with mobile devices is quite easy.

The DTV tuner module features support for many digital terrestrial TV broadcast systems such as DVB-T, DVB-T2, DVB-T2 Lite, ISDB-T and ISDB-Tmm. Sony India will also offer an antenna along with software and technical support within the package.

As we take a look at the tuner module's specs, we find that it's just 6.9 mm x 6.9 mm x 1.0 mm in dimensions and consumers less than 200 mW of power. As far as interfacing data is concerned, it supports TS, SPI, SDIO and for control, there's I2C, SPI, SDIO. Sony will be supplying the Digital TV Tuner module with the Android driver package.

That's all about the new module. What are your thoughts on integrating the Digital TV Tuner in your smartphone? Share with us in comments below.
