TransDimension, a provider of USB connectivity solutions for embedded applications, announced that NEC Electronics Corp. has licensed its USB On-The-Go (OTG) technology to integrate into their next-generation LSI chip for 3G mobile phones. The announcement with NEC Electronics marks TransDimension's entry into the Japanese cellular phone market.

NEC Electronics will leverage the readily available USB standard to obtain direct connectivity for its 3G phones with other mobile devices and computer peripherals. USB OTG will greatly enhance the connectivity feature set of 3G phones by providing access to other smart devices, like digital cameras, PDA's and computer peripherals to exchange data without the aid of a PC.

"The next-generation of mobile phones will be required to offer a rich multimedia experience to the end-user. A necessary part of that experience will be the ability to share data with other users through direct connectivity to other smart devices," said Rick Goerner, TransDimension president and CEO.
