Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) announced that LG Electronics (LGE) has chosen TI's OMAP-Vox platform for its new series of EDGE handsets. Built on TI's OMAP platform, the OMAP-Vox platform is a family of application and communication processors designed to enable manufacturers to deliver multimedia applications to the mass market.

The EDGE handsets will incorporate TI's OMAPV1030 chipset to provide multimedia capabilities coupled with EDGE functionality. The OMAPV1030 solution delivers advanced capabilities such as advanced video capture, playback and streaming; digital still camera features; color LCD; and interactive 2D/3D gaming. This processor is based on the OMAP1710 architecture and runs both GSM/GPRS/EDGE modem and applications processing on a single OMAP core.

"LGE is pleased to continue extending its long-standing relationship with TI to include the growing EDGE market," said Dr. Skott Ahn, executive vice president, head of LGE mobile handset R&D center. "Because of its deep experience with its proven OMAP platform, TI understands how delivering compelling multimedia applications to handsets is essential in driving growth. Providing affordable feature-rich handsets is essential to LGE as we address consumer demand in the mass market."

The LGE handsets also incorporate TI's BRF6150 single-chip Bluetooth solution, which enables Bluetooth headset functionality and wireless synchronization and downloads of multimedia files.
