NXP Semiconductors has announced a feature-packed, ultrasmall, single-core, dual-mode Nexperia Cellular Multimedia Baseband PNX6712 for HSPA and EDGE. Based on 65nm process technology, it offers manufacturers advanced on-chip multimedia features, such as H.264 decoding on QVGA at 30fps. The PNX6712 forms the engine of NXP's Nexperia Cellular System Solution 6712—an HSDPA/HSUPA/EDGE platform that enables sub-Rs.1,184.35 ($30) electronic BOM.

NXP claims the PNX6712 outperforms existing HSPA-EDGE basebands in its category by combining best-in-class multimedia features, up to 750hrs of standby, 45hrs of MP3 and 8hrs of video playback, and a number of connectivity options for anytime, anywhere content transfer. The solution provides manufacturers a platform for high-performance multimedia phones, with a highly flexible and efficient architecture built around an ARM926-EJ processor, unique algorithms for voice and video, hardware accelerated low-power video, graphics and camera features, and built-in security and DRM.

"NXP has yet again raised the bar for HSPA feature phones, by developing a comprehensive dual-mode EDGE-HSPA baseband solution that is ready-to-integrate and very flexible, allowing manufacturers to offer a rich mobile multimedia experience with extended playback time and seamless mobility of content," said Armand Guerin, VP for product line feature phones, NXP Semiconductors. "The PNX6712 feeds into the growing demand for integrating multiple telecom standards with support for high-speed access to digital content anytime, anywhere."

Packaged into a 12-by-12mm footprint with a 0.4mm pitch, the PNX6712 features single-core architecture, eliminating the need for an external multimedia co-processor. It supports the latest audio and video codecs, four microphone inputs for better voice quality, two class-D amplifiers for clear sound, W/QVGA display interfaces and TV-out functionality. All these features are supported by over 10 connectivity interfaces, including USB Hi-Speed OTG, SDIO, SPI, most memory cards as well as system level extensions for A-GPS, NFC, BT, FM, for seamless sharing of content.

The dual-mode HSPA-EDGE multimedia baseband solution is already sampling.
