Royal Philips Electronics unveiled its first Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) enabled baseband chips for cordless phones, which will allow consumers to use a cordless phone rather than a computer or wired phone to make cheaper international and domestic calls over the Internet.

These new baseband chips belong to Philips' PCD8072x family of cordless phone baseband chips, and offer phone manufacturers a simple, yet feature-rich VoIP solution.

According to the company, the new baseband ICs contain high-end ARM7 and DSP technology, and consequently deliver high performance. The VoIP protocol stack is part of the firmware and is transparent to phone manufacturers, making it easy to construct a complete VoIP system, said Philips. Depending on the wireless standard used, the VoIP task can be accomplished in the handset or in the base station. The PCD8072x also delivers very low power consumption, allowing extended talk and standby time.

The PCD8072x family is currently shipping in volume to top cordless phone manufacturers worldwide. These chips are available as part of the Nexperia System Solution 820 or as a standalone product.
