Chipsets advance mobiles

11 March 2008

Qualcomm powers the next evolution of personal navigation devices and portable multimedia players.

As the specifications of mobile consumer devices continue to expand, Qualcomm has developed a family of three chipsets, the QST1000, QST1100 and QST1105 . The integrated features and capabilities include wireless connectivity, high-accuracy multi-mode GPS positioning, a high-performance applications processor; support for broadcast mobile TV, and rich multimedia.

The QST-series chipsets are designed to enable the next generation of wirelessly connected mobile entertainment, TV, navigation and mobile Internet browsing devices, whilst delivering time-to-market and efficiency advantages to device manufacturers.

The QST1000 chipset includes an integrated ARM11 applications processor running at 528 MHz with support for third-party operating systems (such as Windows mobile, Win CE, and Linux). There is a comprehensive range of popular audio and video codecs, and rich multimedia features, including camera, video playback (at up to VGA resolution), and TV-out, as well as support for Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and FM radio. Furthermore, the seventh-generation gpsOne engine with support for standalone-GPS and assisted-GPS modes, as well as gpsOneXTRA assistance technology, deliver enhanced standalone-GPS performance. In addition, 65 nanometer process technology enhances battery life.

All three chipsets interface with Qualcomm’s universal broadcast modem solution for MediaFLO, DVB-H and ISDB-T mobile broadcast TV support. The three chipsets are pin-compatible and utilise a common base of software, offering device manufacturers significant flexibility and highly efficient designs in choosing specific functionality for their products.
