Atmel Corp. and Taiwan-based SENAO Int. Co. Ltd, a wireless communications systems manufacturer, have announced a new family of Wi-Fi phone products based on Atmel's AT76C901 and AT76C902 wireless VoIP chips.

SENAO's Wi-Fi product portfolio, incorporating Atmel's chips, includes monochrome and color-display wireless VOIP phones and Access Points. These products are targeted at IP telephony service providers (ITSP) and carriers demanding customizable services.

SENAO invested heavily in VoIP R&D. It recently launched their new line of Wi-Fi VoIP handsets, the SI-680H, 681H and 682H at Computex in Taipei, May 30, 2005. The introduction highlighted the SI-682H handset using Atmel's next-generation SoC chipset design. The handset features a large, 26mm color LCD display. When supported by an ITSP, users may also send and receive PSTN calls. Its advanced voice compression provides high quality voice and penetration of most firewall environments for wireless PC connection delivering a cost-effective VoIP solution.

Peter Chou, SENAO's CEO, said, "Atmel's cost effective, high quality, and stable performance chipset helped SENAO's Wi-Fi phone to achieve approval by many worldwide ITSP and carriers. And also based on Atmel's chipset, SENAO is the first and only phone maker in the world to have obtained Wi-Fi certification. We believe next generation 802.11a/b/g version with ATMEL '902 series chipset will get more positive feedback from the market."

"VoIP is opening new opportunities in telecommunications and SENAO's new Wi-Fi phones are a fine example," said TC Wu, Atmel's co-founder and executive VP.
