  3. 3. O n e P l a t f o r m S u p p o r t s I t A l l The wireless sector requires an ever-shrinking time-to- market with each new product. To profit from short windows of opportunity, our customers need integrated reusable hardware and software platforms, support for the latest design tools and fabrication processes, and accelerated prototype and production runs. We base our wireless capabilities on the Velocity ™ Standard Communication Platform™ (SCP ™), combining the Oak+DSPCore ™ and ARM7TDMI microprocessor into an all-powerful, flexible, dual-processor subsystem. ( ) Based on the Velocity SCP, our cellular innovations enable smaller, lower-cost, more e fficient cellular handsets with longer talk and standby times, enhanced speech quality, higher perf o rmance, richer feature sets and innovative industrial design. V L S I ’s Velocity SCP allows phone manufacturers to develop products for multiple wireless markets based on a common arc h i t e c t u re and tools enviro n m e n t . F u rt h e rm o re, VLSI’s Velocity design methodology p rovides a unique technology platform to integrate multiple, converging technologies in the most c o s t - e ffective way. The Velocity SCP comprises pro v e n building blocks that include VLSI-enhanced embeddable ARM ™ and DSP cores and a variety of peripherals including I/Os, caches, interru p t c o n t rollers, UARTs and analog cells. The Velocity SCP also includes CPU software and DSP firm w a re modules, along with integrated ARM and DSP software tools. All these elements, along with the Velocity HDL Integrator ™ ( H D L i ™) design methodology, allow the quick, eff i c i e n t development of complete system-on-a-chip solutions.
  4. 4. At the heart of the Velocity Standard Communication P l a t f o rm are powerful cores.

The high level of integration, including the dual processor core , as well as the radio and voice front-ends, delivers t remendous power and cost savings. On average, thanks to VLSI’s ability to integrate analog and digital circ u i t s in a single chip, the OneC™ achieves 50% lower power consumption compared to today’s comparable two-chip solutions. The extensive feature set for voice and data s e rvices has put the GSM OneC solution at the heart of many industry players’ success stories. R F I n t e r f a c e S u p p o r t The OneC has a flexible RF interface allowing seamless compatibility with a wide range of industry- s t a n d a rd radios such as those from Siemens, Hitachi’s BRIGHT ™ RF family, and several upcoming solutions. VLSI is committed to continuous enhancements of the OneC’s RF interface flexibility to allow customers the widest choice of available RF solutions, reducing cost and development risks. S i m i l a r l y, the CDMA+ Processor is designed to interf a c e to a variety of RF chipsets including those from Sony, Conexant, Maxim, Mitel, and AKM.

  7. 7. The C D M A +™ F a m i l y The CDMA+ ™ P rocessor is a single-chip CDMA dual-core baseband solution. VLSI’s CDMA+ Processor platform p rovides a complete, verified and supported package including the cost-effective, low-power CDMA+ P rocessor 100 chip, software, and debug tools. This c o m p rehensive package simplifies mobile phone development, provides quick time to market and reduces development cost and risk. Since the CDMA+ baseband solution was developed, like the OneC, using the Velocity Standard Communication Platform, it f e a t u res an easily customizable arc h i t e c t u re that allows high-volume mobile phone manufacturers to c reate diff e rentiated products based on a common a rc h i t e c t u re and tools environment, enabling faster p roduct development and migration. Futur e Cellular Developments VLSI is dedicated to market-leading cost eff i c i e n c y. The availability of our VSC11 0.15µm (L e ff 0 . 1 2 µ m ) technology not only allows SRAM and Flash integration in future chipsets, but also provides the base for furt h e r radio integration. A major challenge in the migration t o w a rds 3G products and wireless technologies will be the upcoming convergence of communication technologies with many complementary applications. V L S I ’s Velocity design methodology has been developed to support and accelerate the conversion of this technology into highly integrated (and thus power- and c o s t - e ffective) devices. T h i r d P a r t y P a r t n e r s h i p s Strategic partnerships are necessary to complement i n t e rnal capabilities and re s o u rces. VLSI has a secure and credible history in forming and maintaining these relationships. Complementing the long-standing relationship with Wavecom for the GSM module solution, the Debis GSM protocol software has been fully integrated onto the VLSI OneC platform, now available for Type Approval. The full feature set for voice and handwriting recognition from ART is also implemented and is available in OneC-based pro d u c t s . For CDMA, VLSI and Dot Wi reless offer a complete s o f t w a re foundation and protocol stack that support s both CDMA and AMPS modes. Dot Wi reless also offers a complete CDMA transceiver re f e rence design.
  8. 8. The 3G challenge to phone manufacturers will be to develop consumer products featuring not only wire l e s s t e c h n o l o g y, but also a wide range of emerg i n g technologies in communication and computing as well as security and location. The convergence of multiple technologies and services will be the driver of future communications markets. The Road to 3G V L S I ’s Velocity design methodology, combined with a range of target market platforms, such as the Ve l o c i t y S t a n d a rd Communication Platform, provides a secure evolution path to real 3rd generation consumer p roducts: consumer products which are competitive in t e rms of cost and perf o rmance with today’s wire l e s s t e rminals, and thus will meet the consumer’s future p roduct expectations. VLSI is the only vendor providing CDMA as well as GSM p roducts to today’s market, and this positions VLSI ideally to develop the emerging Third Generation w i reless technologies UMTS, W-CDMA, and CDMA-2000 (IS-95C). Velocity SCP combines VLSI’s GSM and CDMA e x p e rtise to provide the industry with low-risk and cost- e ffective future 3G solutions. V L S I ’s unique technology and capability portfolio make us the ideal partner for industry players wishing to achieve a competitive advantage on the route toward s the third generation of new wireless standards and c o n v e rging technologies.
