STMicroelectronics, Texas Instruments Inc., and Nokia have announced that TI and STMicro will offer ICs based on technology developed with Nokia that will enhance standard CDMA handsets.

The chipset ICs will be jointly marketed by STMicro and TI to handset manufacturers worldwide for cdma2000 1X and 1xEV-DV (1x Evolution for Data and Voice) mobile Internet handsets. The technology has been incorporated in the Nokia-specific chipset used in its cdma2000 1X phones, and following generations of this technology will be used in Nokia-specific chipsets for future 1xEV-DV handsets.

According to TI and STMicro, they are uniting their respective technologies into a portfolio of ICs forming CDMA chipsets which target multiple market segments and present handset manufacturers with flexibility and choice through open hardware interfaces, including RF subsystems and application processors.

In addition to the CDMA chipset solutions, STMicro and TI will make available their own complementary wireless technologies including applications processors, which support the OMAPI standard, WLAN, Bluetooth, and GPS location technology. STMicro offers Flash memory products as an option to complement the chipset. Both companies offer customers semiconductor manufacturing capabilities with the demonstrated ability to support high-performance, low-power, and cost-effective silicon in high-volume production.
