CSR integrate its wireless platform onto
Infineon's cellular reference designs
CSR announced that it will integrate its wireless connectivity
platform to Infineon's cellular reference designs. This
collaboration provides mobile phone customers with added
features such as sharing audio, pictures, videos, music
and data, and connecting to mobile phones, headsets, computers,
media players and numerous other wireless devices.
"'Connected everywhere' has become an integral part
of the consumer lifestyle. By collaborating with CSR we
are able to enhance our reference designs with pre-integrated
Wi-Fi and wireless connectivity software framework, in addition
to our in-house integrated connectivity IP," commented
Stefan Butz, Vice President of the Wireless Solutions Division
and General Manager of the Business Line Entry Phones at
Infineon Technologies. "CSR's expertise and position
as a leading supplier of embedded wireless connectivity
makes it an important partner for Infineon and our customers."
"This collaboration with Infineon will allow phone
manufacturers to quickly and easily integrate Wi-Fi connectivity
with minimum development time or expenditure," said
Matthew Philips, Senior Vice President of CSR's Handset
Business Unit. "The design simplicity is made possible
using our CSR Synergy wireless systems software, which also
provides the end users with a truly seamless wireless experience."
CSR's wireless connectivity platforms offer Bluetooth and
Wi-Fi which are unified through the use of CSR Synergy software.
Infineon platforms with integrated CSR's wireless connectivity
will be available in 2011.
