Longtime allies InterDigital Communications and Infineon Technologies are teaming up on development of HSDPA software for 3G mobile networks.
The companies announced Thursday the new venture would lead to third-generation protocol stack software for Infineon's 3G platform and accelerated launch of a 3GPP Release 5 product.
3GPP stands for Third Generation Partnership Project, an organization that sets worldwide technical standards for 3G networks. Release 5 is the next evolutionary step in developing standards for Universal Mobile Telecommunications Systems.
Infineon's Tom Linder said in a news release that his company's collaboration with InterDigital would lead to committed HSDPA deliveries later in the current quarter.
