Qualcomm Inc. announced it is developing the Mobile Station Modem MSM6260 chipset and system software solution for W-CDMA (UMTS)/ hsdpa" target=_blank>high speed downlink packet access (HSDPA) and GSM/GPRS/EDGE (EGPRS). Expected to be sampling by the fourth quarter of 2005, this chipset will be optimized to increase the reach of cost-effective, higher-speed wireless data solutions.

The MSM6260 multimedia platform chipset supports peak data rates of 3.6Mbps, and can support tri-band W-CDMA/HSPDA (850/1900/2100 MHz) and quad-band EGPRS (850/900/1800/1900 MHz) operation.

"To meet the increased demand for the high data rates supported by HSDPA, we've developed a mainstream solution [the MSM6260 chipset] that allows OEMs to reuse their existing MSM6275-based designs to develop a broad variety of HSDPA devices," said Dr. Sanjay K. Jha, president of Qualcomm CDMA Technologies.

The design is pin- and software-compatible with the company's other HSDPA chipsets. It supports multimedia services such as streaming video solutions, advanced audio for portable music, 2.0 megapixel digital photography and location-based services.

The MSM6260 will be available for sampling the 4th quarter of 2005.
