Qualcomm to Sample Multi-mode 3G/LTE Smartphone Chip in 2010

Qualcomm unveiled its first chipset solution for advanced Smartphones supporting CDMA2000 1xEV-DO Rev. B and Simultaneous Voice-Data Operation (SV-DO), as well as multi-carrier HSPA+ and LTE. The Mobile Station Modem (MSM) MSM8960 chipset is the industry's only complete integrated solution that supports all of the world's leading mobile broadband standards. The chipset is compatible with Smartphone platforms based on Qualcomm's other MSM8x60 chipsets and is scheduled to sample in mid-2010.


"Multi-mode 3G/LTE chipsets will be crucial to smooth deployments of LTE by operators who are looking to complement their existing 3G networks, and the MSM8960 delivers maximum flexibility by supporting EV-DO Rev. B and HSPA+ in addition to LTE," said Steve Mollenkopf, executive vice president of Qualcomm and president of Qualcomm CDMA Technologies. "The MSM8960 raises the bar for LTE solutions by not only offering support for all leading mobile broadband standards, but also integrating exceptional multimedia performance. This allows device manufacturers to leverage their existing HSPA+ device designs for significant economies of scale."http://www.qualcomm.com
