Teleca Partners with STMicroelectronics for Next-Generation Mobile Platforms
Teleca has been selected for software development and integration services for mobile phones platforms, by STMicroelectronics (ST) one of the world’s largest semiconductor companies. This first project is planned as part of a longer-term co-operation between the two companies, targeting customizable platforms and products for leading mobile device manufacturers. Teleca is ST’s preferred reference software integrator for its Symbian-based platforms running the leading-edge Nomadik™ application processor.
In the project, which will take place during 2007, Teleca will deliver development and integration services to ST by building a Symbian/S60 pre-integrated platform within the Nomadik development environment. This platform will be fully customizable by mobile phone OEMs/ODMs, according to their specifications. Several ST customers are believed to be interested in the results. Teleca and ST are now discussing possible joint cooperation for other platforms, in addition to Symbian/S60.
“We believe that this project for Symbian reference design is the genesis of a very promising collaboration and we’re looking at extending it to develop advanced mobile solutions based on other platforms,” says Jyrki Hannikainen, general manager of ST’s Application Processor Division, STMicroelectronics.
“We are proud to have been chosen by STMicroelectronics for a reference integrator,” says Stefan Fleron, head of Teleca Europe. “We hope that being the choice of ST will generate significant new business opportunities during 2007.”
