Icera has teamed up with Teleca of Sweden to develop an Android radio interface layer for its mobile broadband chips that will ship next year.
This is a key step for Icera to move from the USB dongle market for 3G and LTE into the greater volumes of the smartphone using its Espresso 4xx smartphone platform that is based on its Livanto ICE806x reconfigurable baseband chip.
“Teleca´s extensive experience in developing Android solutions along with their proven track record for Android RIL, in particular, made them a compelling partner. The Android RIL being developed by Teleca will be a key component in Icera’s plan to launch Android solutions in 2011. We are looking forward to Teleca providing integration and customization support to our customers,” said Pete Cumming, Icera´s VP Systems Engineering.
“With a highly differentiated offering in software defined modems, Icera is emerging as a strong player in the highly competitive semiconductor market,” said Andrew Till, SVP Solutions Marketing, at Teleca. “We expect this to be the beginning of a long term relationship. Teleca has experienced very strong growth in its Android based solution sales to both the traditional mobile device market and to the consumer electronics and automotive sectors. This latest project adds a new and significant client to Teleca´s customer base and further strengthens Teleca´s leadership in developing Android RIL implementations for new platforms and products.”
