TI Announces WLAN, Bluetooth And FM Audio In A Single Chip

Texas Instruments announced the industry's first solution that integrates mobile WLAN (mWLAN), Bluetooth and FM stereo audio, all in a space-saving platform for mobile phones.

TI brings seamless cellular and Wi-Fi connectivity to consumers with VoWLAN functionality, optimized on TI's OMAP-Vox and WiLink solutions, enabling UMA on the handset across multiple operating systems such as Symbian, Microsoft Windows Mobile, Linux and low level operating systems. UMA provides consumers on-the-go voice access over WLAN or the cellular network using their mobile phones, and will transition to IMS as the fixed mobile convergence market matures.

The WiLink 5.0 platform integrates TI's recently announced BlueLink 6.0 solution, which combines the Bluetooth with high-fidelity FM stereo and mono audio on a single chip. The combination of mWLAN, Bluetooth and FM functionality allows users to perform a variety of simultaneous tasks, such as listening to the radio music on a Bluetooth headset while checking email via Wi-Fi.

Manufactured in TI's innovative DRP technology at the 90 nanometer node, the WiLink 5.0 device cuts both solution size and power consumption by up to 20 percent over competitive solutions, in critical modes of operation.

With three co-located radios, efficient management of RF is required for simultaneous operation of WLAN, Bluetooth and FM applications. The WiLink 5.0 platform takes advantage of TI's expertise from the company's four previous generations of mobile WLAN solutions, which are being shipped in more than 25 mobile handset devices and cellular convergence products today. The platform uses the second generation of TI's Bluetooth/WLAN hardware and software coexistence package, enabling re-use of existing systems, quick time to market and antenna sharing, reducing the bill of materials (BOM) for manufacturers.

TI is currently sampling WiLink 5.0 solutions to select customers. TI will provide multiple package options, including on-board and module solutions. Wide sample availability of WiLink 5.0 solutions are expected to be available in late 2006. Handsets using the WiLink 5.0 platform are expected to be on the market in early 2007.
