Nokia has selected Infineon as a supplier of baseband and RF (Radio frequency) chips for GSM mobile handsets. The highly integrated single-chip E-GOLDvoice will be incorporated in selected future entry level phones from Nokia. Infineon's solution combines a baseband processor, radio frequency transceiver, power management unit and RAM in a footprint measuring just 8 mm x 8 mm. The solution is designed for voice-centric phones with features like color display, text messages, MP3 quality ring tones and applications such as Integrated Handsfree and Speaking Clock.
