STMicroelectronics (ST) and Texas Instruments (TI) today announced the delivery of sample CDMA 1xEV-DV chipsets to device manufacturers. In collaboration with Nokia, Korean carrier LG Telecom is testing the solution for its planned deployment of 1xEV-DV technology. The solution implements release C of the EV-DV standard, which allows peak downstream data rates up to 3.1 Mbps, as well as simultaneous voice and data. TI spokesperson Patty Arellano said they expect to deliver volume shipments of EV-DV chipsets in the fall, with commercial availability of EV-DV devices in early 2005.
