Qualcomm Targets Sub-$150 Smartphones with new Chipset

Qualcomm announced its new Mobile Station Modem (MSM) MSM7227chipset designed to enable high-performance, sub-$150 Smartphones. The MSM7227 solution will offer advanced processing and rich multimedia while utilizing HSDPA/HSUPA for broadband data speeds over 3G networks. It also can support all leading mobile operating systems including Android, Symbian S60, Windows Mobile and BREW Mobile Platform.


The new MSM7227 chipset features a 600 MHz applications processor with a floating point unit, 320 MHz application DSP, 400 MHz modem processor, hardware-accelerated 3D graphics, integrated Bluetooth 2.1 and GPS, 8 megapixel camera and 30 fps WVGA video encode and decode and display support. Manufacturers already using Qualcomm's MSM7xxx-series chipsets can transition to the MSM7227 platform as the software is virtually identical and the package pin layout is very similar. The MSM7227 chipset offers a small 12mm x 12mm footprint and lower power consumption than the previous MSM7xxx-series chips.
