Posted on 11-Feb-2005 21:51 | Tags Filed under: News



Infineon Technologies, Samsung Electronics, Trolltech and Emuzed are announcing the first UMTS/EDGE smartphone reference design based on the Linux operating system. The reference platform showcases many advanced 3G and multimedia services such as UMTS/EDGE dual mode voice calls, video calls and video streaming, high performance multimedia applications (H.264, MPEG-4, AAC+, MP3), ultra-fast Web browsing, stereo loudspeaker with 3D audio and Java-based 3D gaming.

The hardware platform includes Samsung Electronics' S3C24A0 application processor and camera module, and Infineon's MP-U UMTS/EDGE modem platform. It is engineered for small form-factor designs and comes complete in a compact slider case.

The software platform is a pre-integrated solution consisting of Infineon's proven UMTS/EDGE dual-mode protocol stack, Samsung Electronics' optimized Linux kernel and drivers certified by Montavista, Trolltech's Qtopia software platform for Linux-based mobile phones and Emuzed's audio and video applications. Some new Java applications will be showcased on Sun's Java implementation. ARM and Superscape's Swerve 3D rendering engine, Opera's browser and QSound Labs' 3D audio and ringtone solutions are also included.

The smartphone reference design is designed for handset manufacturers who want to quickly reach a position in the growing UMTS/EDGE smartphone market with a Linux-based device. Designed to support dual cellular standards, the platform enables users to have vast mobile network coverage and benefit from advanced multimedia features delivered at high data rates.
