[Samsung to use the Philips quad-band Nexperia 6110 EDGE chipset in new handsets. The Nexperia solution makes it possible to stream 3GPP or MPEG4 files at 15 frames per second and transfer data at downlink speeds of 220 kbps.]
Royal Philips Electronics announced the mass production of the world's first EDGE cellular system solution. Philips' Nexperia(tm) Cellular System Solution 6100 family will be available in mobile handsets from Samsung. The Nexperia Cellular System Solution allows manufacturers to deliver integrated, cost-effective handsets to market quickly while optimizing multimedia performance.
Validated for EDGE class 10, the 6110 solution supports data transfers with fast downlink speeds of up to 220 kbps. The inclusion of an ARM9 baseband and the LifeVibes(TM) Multimedia suite makes it possible to stream 3GPP or MPEG4 files in 15 frames per second in quarter common image format (QCIF), making it ideal for TV on mobile. The solution also enables high-quality QCIF video recording at 15 frames per second without the need for an external coprocessor. The playback of MP3 and AAC audio files, as well as the generation of stereo polyphonic sounds, makes use of the fully integrated stereo capabilities. Built-in mono interference cancellation (MIC), a version of single-antenna interference cancellation (SAIC), improves voice quality, decreases the number of dropped calls and increases data transmission speeds.
The integrated LifeVibes software suite further supports certified, JTWI compliant Java with JSR 135 Mobile Multimedia API (MMAPI), OMA DRM 1, revolutionary full-duplex speakerphone functionality including noise cancellation, and voice clarity features for the enhancement of speech intelligibility.
The Philips Nexperia Cellular System Solution 6100 is comprised of a quad band class 12-capable EDGE chipset, including Philips Nexperia Cellular Baseband (PCF5213), RF SiP (UAA3587), power amplifier (BGY284E), power management unit (PCF50603), integrated discretes and software. The bill of materials (BOM) is highly competitive due to component integration. Hardware extensions include the Nexperia Mobile Image Processor (PNX4000), FM radio (TEA5761UK) and Bluetooth 1.2 module (BGB204).
The solution is available now.
