Qualcomm has introduced the QSC1100 single chip solution which is designed to enable CDMA2000 handsets that break new industry price barriers for emerging markets worldwide. In addition to supporting features such as downloadable polyphonic ringtones and color displays the QSC1100 solution doubles talk time compared to currently available CDMA2000 handsets. Addressing the dramatic subscriber growth anticipated in emerging markets around the world the QSC1100 solution features multiple technologies to dramatically improve network capacity by up to 100 percent.
"The QSC1100 enables our handset manufacturing partners to further extend their offerings in emerging markets by introducing compelling, attractive devices at new price points," said Dr. Sanjay K. Jha, president of Qualcomm CDMA Technologies. "Working with all levels of the wireless ecosystem, Qualcomm is able to meet a common goal of accelerating time to market for a wide variety of new handsets with differentiated features and superior user experiences."
The QSC1100 solution's integration of baseband modem, RF transceiver, power management and system memory into a single chip reduces the number of discrete components required, reduces bill-of-materials costs and delivers board-area savings of more than 50 percent.
The QSC1100 solution is expected to sample by the second half of 2007."
