InterDigital SlimChip Half-Mini PCIe and SlimChip MID Modules

The InterDigital SlimChip Half-Mini PCIe and SlimChip MID wireless modules feature their SlimChip HSPA baseband IC. The boards are optimized to be embedded in mobile broadband devices — such as Smartphones, notebooks, Mobile Internet Devices or MIDs, and consumer electronics. The SlimChip Embedded Modules are application processor (AP) agnostic, meaning that these fully-integrated wireless engines can efficiently interface with a variety of APs, resulting in maximum power efficiency and throughput. To accelerate customer evaluations and product development, the compact SlimChip Module has been pre-integrated with the Texas Instruments OMAP34x processor-based development platform, as well as the telephony software for the Android mobile platform.

According to InterDigital, the SlimChip Half-Mini PCIe Module is the only HSPA Half-Mini PCIe module available in the market and uses the standard PCIe interface enabling simple connectivity for laptops, notebooks and ultra-mobile PCs (UMPCs). The MID module supports popular interfaces for direct connection to application processors. In addition, all the support software, applications, and interfaces for Windows XP/Vista, Windows Mobile and Linux operating systems are included for quick time to market.
