TI shows off low-cost handset chips

Texas Instruments (TI) today announced its new single-chip, low-cost technology for cell phones aimed at emerging markets. The company said the new single-chip product combines functions including memory, logic, power management, radio, and network processes on a single chip. The chip has been developed using TI's 90-nanometer CMOS and digital radio-frequency processor technologies. The integration of all of these functions to a single chip promises to drive down handset costs while giving these lower-cost devices more functionality.
