Wireless

TI helped drive the first revolution in wireless by creating low-cost voice handsets for new subscribers worldwide. Now, the wireless team's OMAP™ applications processor family and connectivity solutions place TI as a leader in the mobile device market, with solutions in smartphones, tablets, eReaders and other mobile and consumer devices.

TI's Wireless business has shipped more than 250 million OMAP processors and more than one billion wireless connectivity chipsets, including Wi-Fi™, Bluetooth®, GPS, sub-1GHz, ZigBee®, proprietary 2.4 GHz offerings and more. With silicon-rich smartphones expected to represent an estimated one third of the total available handset market by 2012, TI will continue to hold a prominent stake in this market.

OMAP™ applications processors

TI launched the OMAP™ product line in the late 1990s, offering the first applications processor designed specifically for mobile phones. Today, the OMAP offerings continue to define high-performance, low-power processing advancements for products ranging from smartphones and tablets to ultra-thin computing devices. The widely adopted OMAP 3 and OMAP 4 platforms are the foundation of today’s hottest mobile products, and even more enhancements are possible with TI's OMAP 5 platform that was announced in February 2011.
