Sharp Corp. and Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) have agreed to collaborate and combine their expertise in developing a reference design for GSM/GPRS camera phones.

This reference design will combine Sharp's 1 Mega Pixel CCD camera module, flash memory and LCD, together with TI's TCS2100 chipset for GSM/GPRS cellphones and TI's OMAP-DM270 multimedia processor. The reference design also supports high level video including Nancy Technology from Office NOA and MPEG-4 standards. In addition, the two companies will work together on the development of related software and technical support.

With this reference design, handset manufacturers can offer GSM/GPRS cellphones with camera and video mail functions. The two companies plan to offer the reference design by the end of 2003 to handset manufacturers worldwide.
