Congrats to Infineon Technologies AG. Just yesterday, Infineon Technologies launched a new chipset for digital cordless phones that will allow total system costs to be reduced.
The new chipset incorporates the Step8 DECT baseband controller, an eighth-generation device from the company that pioneered the digital cordless market segment in the early 1990s. The Step8 leverages Infineon’s expertise to provide new functionalities like polyphonic ringing, color-display support and a microcontroller optimized for maximum performance. The Step8 is used along with a radio frequency transceiver and power amplifier to provide a very price competitive solution with an extended feature set for digital cordless handsets.
Germany’s Infineon Technologies AG grabbed the No.2 spot in the global DRAM market in the first quarter as its key rivals focused on more profitable NAND flash memory, iSuppli Corp. said on Friday.
Global sales of dynamic random access memory (DRAM) chips rose 7 percent in the first quarter from the October-December period, beating its earlier estimate thanks to strong chip sales to the PC market, the U.S. research firm said.
