Features: QUALCOMM Incorporated has unveiled the QSC1100 single-chip

solution, designed to enable CDMA2000 handsets.

In addition to supporting features such as downloadable polyphonic ringtones and
color displays, the QSC1100 solution doubles talk time compared to currently

available CDMA2000 handsets. The solution features multiple technologies to

dramatically improve network capacity by up to 100 percent.

Dr Sanjay K Jha, president of QUALCOMM CDMA Technologies, said, “The QSC1100
enables our handset manufacturing partners to further extend their offerings in

emerging markets by introducing compelling, attractive devices at new price


The QSC1100 solution's integration of baseband modem, RF transceiver, power
management and system memory into a single chip reduces the number of discrete

components required, reduces bill-of-materials costs and delivers board-area

savings of more than 50 per cent. Manufacturers can now offer smaller and

sleeker designs at significantly lower price points and benefit from reduced

development time for quicker time to market.

The QSC1100 solution offers a wide range of features to deliver a superior user
experience, which includes 65nm process technology for enhanced performance and

cost effectiveness, multiple frequency operation, including 450MHz, 800MHz,

1900MHz and 2100MHz and also supports color displays and speakerphone.
