Qualcomm announces single-chip solution

Comments

It\'s alive!Qualcomm, one of the world’s leading mobile hardware manufacturers (and whose chips can be found in the BlackBerry 8707 — as you’ve reminded us), has just announced a new chip for CDMA devices that will double talk-time and network capacity.

A single-chip solution for CDMA2000 handsets, the QSC1100 integrates a baseband modem, RF transceiver, power management and system memory into a single chip, reducing the number of discrete components required and therefore delivering board-area savings of more than 50 percent. We should start seeing the chip in devices by the second half of 2007.

    Double talk time and standby time? I think that means I won’t have to charge my phone everynight then.
