If the folk at CSR have their way with this reference design, there will be a shed load of Voice over WiFi handsets hitting the streets sometime soon. Almost tempted to go into business myself with a bill of materials at less than $15.00. Just add your own UI, shove on a case and Bob’s your billionaire phone magnate buddy.
CSR’s free reference design for voice-over-Wi-Fi phones sets new standards of performance in this exciting market: * An exceptionally small bill of materials (less than $15!) * Incredibly low power consumption (up to 20 hours talk/400 hours standby from a 1500mAh battery!) It’s based on UniFi-1 Portable, CSR’s ground-breaking single-chip 802.11b/g solution for ‘deeply embedded’ battery-powered systems…Just add your user interface…create the surrounding phone plastics, and it’s ready for mass production.
