Infineon to develop rf transceiver for Motorola

Motorola has selected Infineon to develop a new multimode, single chip 3G rf transceiver based on the latter’s SMARTi UE chip. The chip will address growing demand for 3G services by offering maximum HSDPA and HSUPA performance, along with efficient power consumption and slim design.

“We are pleased to enter into this strategic relationship with Motorola to create an advanced 3G rf solution, based on our SMARTi UE chip. The chip will effectively reduce size and footprint for next generation 3G devices and offer best in class radio performance at market leading system cost,” claimed Stefan Wolff, general manager of Infineon’s RF Engine Business Unit.
