First 0.15-µm Effective Digital Baseband Device?

Inexpensive, lightweight phones that provide even longer talk and standby times then currently available are said to be possible with the introduction of what's claimed as the industry's first digital baseband product with transistor feature sizes of 0.15-µm effective or 0.18-µm drawn. The device supports converged delivery of voice, data and video. Additional benefits of the firm's 0.15-µm technology include lower power consumption, reduced board space, and the potential for system cost savings. The small die size, together with next-generation chip-scale packaging, can reportedly create complete systems only slightly larger than the silicon itself. The initial device integrates a TMS320C54x DSP, a microcontroller, ROM, SRAM, logic and analog functions on a single die. Samples are available.
