Royal Philips Electronics has commenced mass production of its first EDGE cellular system solution. Philips' Nexperia cellular system solution 6100 family will be available in mobile handsets from Samsung.

"Handset makers need to continuously deliver updated, feature-rich models to drive consumer sales," said Gert-Jan Kaat, SVP of the mobile communications business unit of Philips Semiconductors. "The Philips Nexperia Cellular System Solution, featuring EDGE capabilities, provides a flexible, upgradable solution that enables quick and easy access to information anywhere and at any time," Kaat added.

Validated for EDGE class 10, the 6110 solution supports data transfers with fast downlink speeds of up to 220kbps. The inclusion of an ARM9 baseband and the LifeVibes multimedia suite makes it possible to stream 3GPP or MPEG4 files in 15 frames per second in quarter common image format (QCIF), making it suitable for TV on mobile.

The Philips Nexperia cellular system solution 6100 is comprised of a quad band class 12-capable EDGE chipset, including Philips Nexperia cellular baseband (PCF5213), RF SiP (UAA3587), power amplifier (BGY284E), power management unit (PCF50603), integrated discretes and software.
