Mtg: Fourth Generation (4G) Mobile Smartphone Architecture Targeted for Chinese and US Markets

by @ 3:17 pm. Filed under ALL, Communications, Electronics Design, Semiconductors

SCV Communications Chapter
Speaker: Prof. Willie W. Lu, U.S. Center for Wireless Communications (USCWC)
Time: 6:00 PM
Cost: none
Place: National Semiconductor, Building E, Conference Room, 2900 Semiconductor Dr, Santa Clara
RSVP: not required


The future wireless and mobile communications terminal device will be shifted from the traditional transmission-specific technology to an interface-based technology to be able to converge with the computer system architecture.

This talk will present an open architecture platform for the fourth generation (4G) mobile smartphone device supporting multi-bands, multi-standards wireless and mobile communications and enabling extensibility and upgradeability of the system modules including radio frequency transceiver, data converter and base-band processing core where the open system platforms are based on the open wireless architecture (OWA) BIOS and frameworks. This OWA system platform is an optimal integration of the computerâ??s architecture with the next generation wireless and mobile communications technology to deliver truly open and simple 4G smartphone products.

The presented system architecture can be utilized for the next generation iPhone product, the Google phone product, the Blackberry product, the iPAQ product as well as other advanced smartphone product definitions. ? The architecture development is focused on the Chinese and US markets where openness and simplicity become the driving forces in designing the next-generation smartphones.
