WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- Sandbridge Technologies, Inc. announced today that it has successfully demonstrated a complete 3G multimedia terminal design using its SB3010™ flexible baseband processor to perform all baseband and multimedia functions in software.

Widely regarded as a wireless “holy grail,” flexible baseband processing promises to free handset manufacturers from a wide range of hardware-based design constraints and enable network operators to upgrade services via simple OTA (over-the-air) updates. The SB3010 paves the way for a powerful new class of multi-mode, multimedia convergent devices that merge the flexibility and performance of PC’s with the form and convenience of mobile handsets.

The SB3010 platform departs radically from traditional hardware by allowing manufacturers to create, test, modify and execute their designs entirely in software. Coupled with intuitive programming tools and a supercomputer class “C” compiler, the SB3010 not only reduces risk, cost, complexity and time-to-market, it uniquely facilitates swift and easy adaptation to multiplying and evolving standards; emerging network requirements like MIMO; and diverse audio and video formats. Additionally, the platform enables manufacturers to differentiate and extend the usability of their designs by streamlining the development and integration of new features and applications.

“The importance of this achievement cannot be overstated,” said Guenter Weinberger, Sandbridge President and CEO. “It proves that there is a solution to provide 100% flexibility for multimode/multimedia wireless handhelds. The advanced functional capacity of this platform has the potential to transform today’s humble handset into tomorrow’s personal computing device of choice.”
