We see from your search that you're looking for information on the term "Analogue baseband", and we have a large number of manufacturers' news releases and technical articles here on Electronicstalk which will be of interest. Let me be your guide.

Start with the news release 3GSM showing for 65nm handset devices from Broadcom Corp, which we summarised at the time by saying "Broadcom is showcasing new 65nm products for mobile handsets and handheld devices at this week's 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona, Spain". Earlier in the week, we featured the news release Edge transceiver is built on 65nm CMOS process from Broadcom Corp: "Broadcom applies years of research and development and extensive expertise in CMOS radio devices to the cellular market to forge an integration path towards a monolithic Edge SoC solution".

In February 2007, we covered the news from Freescale Semiconductor concerning its RFX300-30 - take a look at 3G RF subsystem comes in single integrated package which says: "Freescale Semiconductor has unveiled the industry's smallest 3G multiband form factor RF subsystem for handset design".

Take a look also at the news release from Tower Semiconductor, Alliance brings sound generator to volume, as well as Platform expands entry-level handset features from Agere Systems, and Chipset expands portfolio of TD-SCDMA technology from Analog Devices.
