New chip to make multimedia phones affordable for mass marketTexas Instruments Tech During a meeting of wireless companies on November 8, 2006, Texas Instruments announced its new OMAP-Vox single chip solution that will help make multimedia phones cheaper and available for the mass market. The new chip uses TI's DRP technology which has been successful in lowering costs for other instruments. This technology simplifies the radio frequency and thus reduces board space on the phone and extends the battery life. Being able to produce relatively cheap phones that have multimedia will be very profitable because emerging markets such as China will continue to buy them up as the market grows.
