NXP Semiconductors has developed a new family of multimedia-enhanced cellular system platforms that significantly ease Edge-based handset design. According to NXP, the new Nexperia cellular system solutions 5212 and 5213 provide complete HW/SW designs for entry- and mid-level Edge handsets, respectively.

Combining everything necessary for a finished design, including extensive validation and interoperability testing, NXP's solutions enable handset manufacturers to deliver a handset to market in as little as 3 to 4 months. NXP has also introduced the Nexperia cellular system solution 5209, a dedicated data modem that supports pure data applications (PCMCIA cards, M2M), as well as smart phone modem applications requiring EDGE data transmission.

Powerful solutions
NXP's Edge development platforms are based on the ARM9 architecture for high multimedia performance and upgrade flexibility. Built for better data throughput by supporting Edge, the Nexperia cellular system solutions 5212 and 5213 support a wide range of applications, such as streaming music, video, Internet, A-GPS and location-based services. They also support an extensive range of multimedia and connectivity functions, including QVGA LCD, 1.3Mpixel camera, Bluetooth, high-speed USB and Java JSR. The integrated NXP user interface (UI) tools offered with this solution enable manufacturers to fully customise the UI in less than two weeks to meet varied handset requirements and customisation.

The Nexperia cellular system solutions 5212 and 5213 with optimised processing power eliminate the need for an external camera sensor interface or audio co-processor for polyphonic ringtones, MP3 listening or AV playback. According to NXP, the core systems consist of a high-performance baseband, a power management unit (PMU) with a fully integrated battery charger, as well as a complete quad-band transceiver. As a result, the reduced core supply of 1.2V significantly lowers overall system power consumption.

The Nexperia cellular system solution 5209 is a cost-effective solution that addresses the full Edge modem market, including GPRS/EDGE class 10 for use with Smartphones, PCMCIA cards, USB dongles, PDAs, M2M and more. The core components include a high-performance baseband, a PMU with fully integrated battery charger and a complete four-band transceiver. High integration, along with optimised processing power, keeps power consumption low and delivers industry-leading standby and talk times.

The Nexperia 5209, 5212 and 5213 derivative platforms for entry- and mid-level Edge mobile handsets are set for mass production in early Q4.
