Building on their leadership in TD-SCDMA, NXP Semiconductors and T3G Technologies have announced that the next-generation 3G cellular system solution T3G7208 is now commercially available to the Chinese market. TD-SCDMA services are now in commercial trial across eight cities in China, including Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou. The Nexperia cellular system solution T3G7208 is a complete solution for multimode TD-SCDMA/EDGE mobile phones, which currently powers the Samsung SGH-L288 handset.

“NXP is very positive about the success of the ongoing roll-out of TD-SCDMA networks across China. Commercial availability of Samsung’s TD-SCDMA phone is testament to NXP’s commitment to providing innovative handset solutions for specific market requirements,” said Dan Rabinovitsj, senior vice president and general manager of cellular business at NXP Semiconductors. “Working closely with handset manufacturers like Samsung, NXP and T3G have executed a strategy to support deployment of next generation 3G services in China and gain a leadership position.”

Johan Pross, CEO of T3G, added, "T3G has been a leader in the development of TD-SCDMA terminal technologies since the standard was in its infancy. In collaboration with NXP, we have developed a powerful and efficient platform that enables optimal 3G performance, with ultra-low power consumption that can be delivered in ultra-small form factor devices.”
