Agere Systems announces chipset and software framework for smartphones
In a move similar to rival Texas Instruments, Agere Systems announced a mobile handset architecture that enables phone manufacturers to more rapidly deliver a broad portfolio of products aimed at addressing growing demand for multimedia-capable wireless phones that can support such applications as real-time audio and video streaming, digital photo imaging and interactive gaming.

Agere's new Vision mobile handset architecture combines a digital baseband chip set, software and state-of-the-art tools to provide a low-power, highly integrated framework for a broad range of multimedia mobile devices using the same platform. The design covers network technologies including 2.5G/GPRS, EDGE, 3G/WCDMA and beyond. According to Agere, the Vision architecture's unique modular hardware and software platform can shorten the time it takes to bring a handset to market by up to six months.

The software provided as part of the Vision architecture includes Agere's protocol stack, which has been built to support multiple handset segments and evolving mobile standards. Besides assuring compatibility with earlier generations of Agere chip sets and providing an increased return on previous software investments, the protocol stack eliminates much of the time required for testing. It includes all of the key requirements for Field Type Approval (FTA), Global Certification Forum (GCF) testing and PCS Type Certification Review Board (PTCRB), as well as field and interoperability testing.

The company says this design will be capable of providing 50 percent longer battery life than comparable current single processor multimedia solutions and high-quality video streaming at rates of up to 30 frames per second VGA.

Designed to support a variety of open operating systems, including Symbian OS, Windows Mobile, PalmOS and Linux, the software also delivers quick handling of multimedia and data applications.
