Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) announced the WiLink 5.0 solution that integrates mobile WLAN (mWLAN), Bluetooth and FM stereo audio in a platform for cellphones. The solution caters to applications such as rapid data access, mobile entertainment and connectivity between the WLAN and cellular networks.

The WiLink 5.0 platform integrates TI's BlueLink 6.0 solution, which combines Bluetooth with high fidelity FM stereo and mono performance on a single chip. Manufactured in TI's DRP technology at the 90nm node, the device is said to reduce solution size and power consumption by up to 20 percent over competitive solutions. The platform uses the second generation of TI's Bluetooth/WLAN hardware and software coexistence package.

TI is currently sampling WiLink 5.0 solutions to select customers. TI will provide multiple package options, including on-board and module solutions. Wide sample availability of WiLink 5.0 solutions are expected to be available in late 2006. Handsets using the WiLink 5.0 platform are expected to be on the market in early 2007.
