Nokia and STMicroelectronics said they will share chipset technology and workers in order to push the evolution of high-speed 3G mobile technology. Through the agreement, STMicroelectronics will design and manufacture 3G chipsets based on Nokia's modem technologies, energy management and radio-frequency technology. Nokia plans to move part of its chip operations to STMicroelectronics. About 200 Nokia employees in Finland and the UK will move during the fourth quarter of 2007. Nokia has also awarded ST a design win of an advanced 3G HSPA (high-speed packet access) chipset supporting high data rates. The collaboration is a part of Nokia's larger strategy to license chipset technology to manufacturers who will develop and produce chipsets for Nokia. "Nokia's strategy will be to collaborate with its semiconductor partners for full chipset solutions," Niklas Savander, Executive Vice President of Technology Platforms for Nokia, said in a statement. "We have worked with STMicroelectronics for many years and the company is a perfect partner for this expanded collaboration."
