Infineon sees falling mobile, VoIP prices

Sep 20, 2005

Equipment costs for mobile phones and potential VoIP systems are decreasing as technology improves, Germany's Infineon has concluded.

The company said Tuesday that its Dual-Channel Subscriber Line Interface Controller-Single Package technology will make VoIP modems and PBXs not only available in smaller sizes but with sturdier and more robust performance.

Mass production of the DuSLIC-SP begins in Q1 2006.

Infineon also sees mobile-phone costs plunging. Company officials in India told EETimes that its new low-cost platforms can bring handset costs down below $20 and to as low as $15.

EETimes said Motorola and Phillips are also working on sizable reductions in equipment prices.
