San Diego, C.A. QUALCOMM Inc. announced it is developing the Mobile Station Modem MSM6260 chipset and system software solution for WCDMA (UMTS)/ High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) and GSM/GPRS/EDGE (EGPRS). Expected to be sampling by the fourth quarter of 2005, the chipset will be optimized to increase the reach of cost-effective, higher-speed wireless data solutions.
The MSM6260 multimedia platform chipset supports peak data rates of 3.6 Mbits/s. It can support tri-band WCDMA/HSPDA (850/1900/2100 MHz) and quad-band EGPRS (850/900/1800/1900 MHz) operation.
"To meet the increased demand for the high data rates supported by HSDPA, we've developed a mainstream solution, the MSM6260 chipset, that allows OEMs to reuse their existing MSM6275-based designs to develop a broad variety of HSDPA devices," said Dr. Sanjay K. Jha, president of QUALCOMM CDMA Technologies.
The design is pin- and software-compatible with the company's other HSDPA chipsets. It supports multimedia services such as streaming video solutions, advanced audio for portable music, 2.0 megapixel digital photography, and location-based services.
The MSM6260 will be available for sampling the 4th quarter of 2005. Qualcomm,
