Qualcomm is sampling its Mobile Station Modem (MSM) MSM6280 solution that supports HSDPA technology, an evolution of the WCDMA (UMTS) standard 3GPP Release 5.0. The chip set supports data speeds of up to 7.2 Mbits/s to enable the deployment of advanced data and multimedia services among wireless subscribers worldwide. The MSM6280 solution integrates advanced receiver technologies such as receive diversity and equalizer for increased data throughput and network capacity.
The MSM6280 chipset is pin-, RF-, and software API-compatible with the company's first HSDPA solution, the MSM6275 chip set, allowing handset makers to leverage existing hardware and software platforms for faster time to market and reduced development costs. In addition, the MSM6280 interfaces with the company's RF CMOS single-chip transceiver and multi-band receiver devices, enabling more integrated and cost-effective solutions.
The MSM6280 single-chip baseband supports WCDMA (UMTS)/HSDPA and GSM/GPRS/EDGE (EGPRS) standards and integrates a wide range of multimedia features, including advanced video, audio, imaging, and 3D graphics capabilities, as well as Qualcomm's BREW solution.
