Infineon Technologies AG, a provider of semiconductor solutions for mobile phones, and Nokia, the world’s largest manufacturer of mobile phones and services, have announced a cooperation to develop advanced radio frequency (RF) transceiver solutions for long-term evolution (LTE, 4G) mobile networks.
Nokia and Infineon will work together to ensure that current and future generations of Nokia’s licensable modem designs work seamlessly with Infineon’s RF transceiver solutions, giving the industry access to complete modem solutions for HSPA (high speed packet access) through LTE (long term evolution) and beyond.
Facilitated by this cooperation, both companies will jointly drive the interface standardization for LTE-Advanced enabling data rates of up to 1Gb/s. Providing a validated system with an open interface will enable a fast roll out of new products and increase competition in the market for advanced modem chipsets.
The collaboration involves teams from both companies working on the architectural and system challenges to ensure seamless interoperability and compatibility. The fruits of this cooperation will be a verified technology reference platform.
