HelloSoft Intros Ultra Low-Power IP Convergence Platform

By Anuradha Shukla, TMCnet Contributing Editor

HelloSoft has launched its ultra low-power IP Convergence (News - Alert) Platform and claims that it is five times more power efficient than existing solutions.

According to HelloSoft officials, the new chip, HS100, combines HelloSoft’s patented technologies for advanced ultra low-power ARM (News - Alert) processor and patented SmartWLAN, and the company’s complete convergence software suite.
The HS100 supports UMA and interfaces for 2G/3G/4G (LTE/WiMAX) connectivity and co-existence algorithms required to deliver the state of the art convergence chip.
Based on cross-layer optimization and intelligent power management, HelloSoft’s (News - Alert) SmartWLAN technology delivers quantum improvement in power consumption. This leads to talk times in excess of 20 hours and standby time of 250 hours as compared to 2-4 hours talk time and 20-50 hours standby time for traditional VoWLAN solutions.
The IP Convergence Processor is ideal for low-mid to high-end applications at low power with dynamic frequency and voltage scaling.
Allan Johnson (News - Alert), vice president, Marketing and Business Development, said that HS100 chip will enable OEMs/ODMs to quickly bring to market affordable Cellular/WiFi (News - Alert), WiMAX/WiFi and Cellular/WiMAX/WiFi handsets.
The operators will also be able to use the chip to ensure consistent user experience across multiple access networks through intelligent connection management and seamless voice/data session handover.
“HelloSoft has successfully demonstrated voice-call-continuity, and data-session continuity while roaming across 2G, 3G and 4G access networks,” he added.
HelloSoft has already scored several design-wins from Tier-1 OEMs and operators and HS100 based VoWLAN handset from a Tier-1 OEM is slated to hit the market this year. In addition, the HS100 has also secured a design-win for a low-cost dual-mode phone from a Tier-1 carrier.
The HS100 integrates 366MHz ARM9E processor, dual-band WLAN 802.11abg, hardware security engine, QoS, and all peripherals required for a powerful and multimedia-capable low-BOM multi-mode device with long battery life.
This chip can also be used for any handheld or mobile device that needs to be WiFi-enabled.
