Ericsson and Intel team up for HSPA on MIDs
Intel’s got a new mobile device platform as a follow up to Atom in the works, called Moorestown, and it should be getting a boost from Ericsson’s HSPA data solutions once it launches some time between 2009 and 2010. Intel and Ericsson will go hand in hand in bringing HSPA mobile data to mobile Internet devices, or MIDs, according to an announcement made by Ericsson.
Also, aside from HSPA, Intel’s Moorestowm platform will also support a variety of other wireless technologies including Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, mobile TV, GPS, and WiMAX.
A report from DigiTimes reveals that the upcoming 3G modules involved in this project will be optimized for Moorestown power requirements, and measure 25×30×2.x mm. As for the Moorestown platform itself, it will feature a so-called system-on-a-chip called “Lincroft” with a 45nm processor, graphics core, video decoder and DDR 3-friendly memory controller.
