Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) introduced an enhanced, cost-efficient GSM/GPRS/EDGE solution for handset manufacturers to bring advanced multimedia features to mainstream mobile phones. Built on the company's omap processor architecture, the omapv1030 solution is the first product in TI's new OMAP-Vox wireless platform, which will offer handset manufacturers a natural and affordable roadmap from GSM/GPRS/EDGE to UMTS, said the press release.

Delivering advanced capabilities to mid-range wireless handsets, the OMAPV1030 solution adds inherent EDGE support and serves as the foundation for UMTS OMAP-Vox processors, enabling seamless software migration from EDGE to UMTS. Alain Mutricy, VP, cellular systems for TI, added, "TI's OMAPV1030 solution gives customers an ideal migration path for delivering advanced multimedia to a broader user base and expands their personal entertainment and communication options."

The OMAPV1030 chipset includes an integrated analog device to further reduce overall BoM by combining power management, audio codecs and drivers onto one chip. The OMAPV1030 certified reference design provides a full BoM, including the RF and power amplifier, on a form factor board. And to further reduce development resources, the OMAPV1030 also includes complete field-tested GSM/GPRS/EDGE protocol stack software, as well as integrated multimedia codecs and functions, and range of development tools.

Samples of the OMAPV1030 solution are already available with volume production expected in 3Q 2005. Additional information can be found online.
