San Diego-based Quorum Systems said today that it has introduced a new, ultra low power, multi-band and multi-mode radio frequency (RF) transceiver. The firm said that its Sereno QS3000 device provides a single-chip solution based on CMOS, for GSM/GPRS/EDGE and 3G HSDPA. The firm's highly integrated chip allows for low power consumption and is targeted at providing manufacturers with 3G and GSM/EDGE on a single-chip. Samples of the product will be available in first quarter 2006, and volume production in the second half of the year. Quorum is backed by Enterprise Partners and Kleiner Perkins Caufield and Byers.
