Spansion LLC, the flash memory subsidiary of Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) and Fujitsu Ltd, has verified the compatibility of its flash memory solutions with the Philips Nexperia cellular system solution 5100, a multimedia-enabled GSM/GPRS cellular phone reference design. By verifying that their products work together &quote;off-the-shelf, &quote; Spansion and Philips now offer a development platform that can drive down the cost and complexity of cellular handset design, while helping to enable increasingly feature-rich products at more accessible price points.

"Our goal is to not only provide optimized memory solutions, but to support those solutions with the value-added memory services needed by our customers," said Amir Mashkoori, senior vice president and general manager of Spansion's wireless business unit. "This collaboration will raise the bar for what cell phone designers require out of their development platform -- streamlined memory testing that reduces design complexity and enables them to focus on bringing greater innovation to their designs," Mashkoori added.

"Spansion has worked closely with Philips at the semiconductor systems level to provide technology, testing, resources and software support, which allows Philips to sell a flexible and customized system solution to a variety of manufacturers," said Mario Rivas, EVP, communications business, Philips Semiconductors.
