Samsung has selected the Philips low-power 802.11 Wireless Local Area Networks (WLAN) solution for a new line of mobile phones. When incorporated into a mobile phone design the Philips 802.11 solution offers access to public WLAN access points, corporate networks and wireless home networks.
"Samsung mobile phones lead the market with superior technology and innovative features that simplify on-the-go wireless connectivity for consumers," said Paul Marino, vice president and general manager, Business Line Connectivity, Philips Semiconductors. "We are very pleased that Samsung has chosen our mobile WLAN solution to connect consumers to the growing number of WLAN networks -- in the home, at work and on the go."
The low-power 802.11 WLAN semiconductor solution from Philips delivers a low standby power consumption that utilizes less than 2 milliwatts (mW) and a radio performance that delivers up to +18 dBm at the antenna port. These capabilities enable a longer high-quality wireless networking experience for users. The Philips solution can be implemented in less than a 150 mm of printed circuit board area.
