Chip manufacturers join forces to support combined 3G/Wi-Fi

Atheros Communications and Qualcomm have joined forces to develop and manufacture a range of wireless chips that can be used in phones operating on both 3G and Wi-Fi networks.

Atheros Communications and Qualcomm have joined forces to develop and manufacture a range of wireless chips that can be used in phones operating on both 3G and Wi-Fi networks.

The announcement is being made at this week’s 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.

The new chips will support the cellular 3G technologies CDMA (North America) and W-CDMA (Europe), in addition to the Wi-Fi 802.11g and 802.11a/g standards.

Demand for combined cellular and Wi-Fi handsets has increased, as more mobile phones start to deliver voice over IP, corporate data and video.

The combined Atheros/Qualcomm product will be commercially available to mobile-device makers by June.
