Intel Develops New Radio-Free Chip

Intel is in the process of developing a chip that would enable laptops to remain connected to the Internet at all times, and a cell phone that would never lose signal, no matter where the user is. The platform, known as "Radio Free Intel," will use software-defined radio technology to adjust to any transmission standard in any environment. Intel would like to place the radio on all its chips, which would ultimately allow thousands of devices to transmit signals to each other. Intel says that there should not be an additional cost associated with placing the radio on the chips.

MobileInfo Comments and Advisory: There is no doubt that SDR (Software-defined radio) will be a major effort in wireless. Intel wants to be and will be a part of software defined chip market. We expect SDR to solve many problems inherent in wireless - different bands, different frequencies and need for different transmission schemes.
