Analog Devices, Inc. has announced that Holley Communications of Hangzhou, China has selected its SoftFone-LCR chipset for use in Holley's next-generation handsets based on the TD-SCDMA Low Chip Rate (LCR) air interface.

The SoftFone chipset provides all the important functions needed to build a TD-SCDMA handset, including the baseband signal processing and control, analog-interface functions and radio, and also Datang Mobile's TD-SCDMA software solution and application suite, according to ADI.

"When evaluating TD-SCDMA chipsets, we appreciated the fact that Analog Devices solution is based on the company's industry-proven, long-standing SoftFone architecture," said James Ge, CEO, Holley Communications. "We were impressed with the performance of Analog Devices' SoftFone-LCR chipset and feel that it has the capability to support true 3G functions in our TD-SCDMA handsets, such as sending multimedia messages, making video calls, and downloading and playing video clips."

ADI's SoftFone-LCR chipset is based on the RAM-based SoftFone architecture being used in the company's GSM/GPRS and EDGE chipsets. The SoftFone-LCR's baseband signal processing and joint detection and decoding is done in software instead of a hardware implementation. The chipset uses software from Datang Mobile, which developed TD-SCDMA.
