RTX Telecom has selected the i.250 Innovative Convergence platform from Motorola Inc.'s Semiconductor Products Sector (Motorola SPS) for use in 2.5G GSM/GPRS cellular handset designs. As part of the agreement between the two companies, the i.250 platform will combine an integrated chipset with GPRS protocol software and type certification to create a complete range of voice-centric, voice-data, and data-centric products.

Motorola claims the i.250 platform offers 50 percent reduction in component count, which enables customers to reduce development time by up to a year and reduces system costs.

Pete Shinyeda, corporate VP and general manager for Motorola's Wireless and Broadband Systems Group, said, "The combination of RTX's expertise in turnkey solutions together with Motorola's comprehensive silicon-to-software GSM/GPRS platform will enable customers to bring to market wireless handsets more quickly and cost-effectively."
