Philips Bluetooth and Nexperia announcements may improve market for mobile
Posted on 12-Jun-2003 07:49. | Tags Filed under: News.



Giat Dutch electronics Philips Philips announced it'll make Bluetooth 1.2 chips based on Ericsson design available for home appliances, and will make the Nexperia processor (already used in the Sony Ericsson P800) available to the general market.

Royal Philips Electronics is to step up its competition with chipmakers such as Intel and Texas Instruments next year with a new mobile processor. The surprise is that many users will have already been using Philips' Nexperia Mobile Multimedia Processor, since it powers Sony Ericsson's P800 smartphone, as Philips revealed this week. The Nexperia system-on-a-chip (SoC) includes an ARM9 core from UK-based ARM, a digital signal processor core and hardware accelerators for such multimedia codecs as MPEG-4 and JPEG. It supports colour touch screens, built-in cameras, organiser functions, Bluetooth and Internet access, among other features.

On the Bluetooth side of the news, under the agreement announced this week, Philips will license Ericsson's new Bluetooth baseband core, which implements the complete range of mandatory Bluetooth 1.2 features. A first pre-release has already been delivered.

Under its strategy to make the connected home environment a reality on a mass scale, Philips will use Ericsson’s Core Bluetooth Baseband Platform Q-E1 to manufacture Bluetooth 1.2 chips for its clients, primarily for use in home appliances.

Compared to the Bluetooth 1.1 specification, Bluetooth 1.2 is claimed to provide better voice and audio quality and improved coexistence with other wireless technologies, according to Ericsson material. Features include adaptive frequency hopping, QoS improvements and a 65% improvement in connection time.
