QUALCOMM CDMA TECHNOLOGIES' WCDMA MOBILE STATION MODEM SELECTED BY SANYO ELECTRIC CO. LTD.
"The highly integrated feature set of the MSM5200 integrated circuit and system software will allow us to easily develop a full-featured WCDMA handset, just as QCT's other solutions enable us to offer our customers full-featured cdmaOne and cdma2000 handsets," said Eiji Kotobuki, vice president, Multimedia Company general manager, Personal Telecommunication Division of SANYO. "In addition to broadening our existing CDMA product line to include WCDMA, we will be able to incorporate many of the existing applications from our other CDMA handsets into our new WCDMA handsets. QCT and SANYO have been working closely to further enhance those applications."
"We are very excited to be working with SANYO, who once again has selected QCT's proven CDMA technology to meet the rapidly changing needs of the wireless marketplace," said Don Schrock, president of QUALCOMM CDMA Technologies. "QCT's MSM5200 solution will enable SANYO to develop feature-rich handsets that will offer their customers the most advanced 3G technologies and capabilities available, and do so in a manner that is both timely and efficient."
The MSM5200 solution supports data rates of 384 kbps and is based on QCT's system expertise and proven commercially available products. The MSM5200 solution offers the integrated features of QCT's Wireless Internet Launchpad suite of advanced technologies and software, including SnapTrack position-location technology, Bluetooth connectivity capabilities, UMTS Subscriber Identity Module (SIM), and multimedia features such as Qtunes Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG-1) Layer-3 (MP3) player software support and Compact Media Extension (CMX) Musical Instrument Digital Interface (MIDI)-based multimedia software. The MSM5200 solution is also capable of interfacing to QCT's Mobile Station Processor (MSP) microprocessor family which is designed to perform the functions associated with personal digital assistant (PDA) applications, including support for streaming video using PacketVideo's PVPlayer MPEG-4 streaming media decoder.
The combination of features offered by the MSM5200 solution will allow manufacturers to develop a wide range of feature-rich products for wireless multimedia applications -- from standard voice-and-data handsets to smart phones that include voice, data, multimedia and organizer capabilities -- quickly, securely and cost efficiently.
