Via Telecom Inc., a developer of CDMA chipsets, has licensed the infrared software development kit (SDK) of Extended Systems, a provider of mobile application solutions for the enterprise, for use in next-generation CDMA chipsets. This license is expected to enable mobile handset manufacturer customers to add infrared communications capabilities using the Infrared Data Association (IrDA) specification to their product line-up.

As part of the agreement, Via Telecom also licensed Extended Systems' OBEX (Object Exchange) transport protocol, providing the ability to beam files over infrared. OBEX is the underlying protocol that enables both IrFM (Infrared Financial Messaging) and SyncML. This is expected to provide Via Telecom customers with a clear development path to implementing IrFM or SyncML capabilities into their handsets as those applications become more widely used.
